Founder of Iroko TV, Jason Obinna Njoku says he and his wife, Mary Remmy-Njoku have agreed not to leave too much wealth for their children.
He said the reason is because when wealth that is inherited usually comes with a huge burden that he does not want the kids to bear.
The businessman and his actress wife have two daughters and a son.
Njoku, in a post on his Twitter page, said they have been saving to ensure that the three of them have the best education, but after that they would have to fend for themselves.
He said; “@MrsMaryNjoku & I save to guarantee our kids a great education. After that our job is done & they can fend for themselves. We don’t save for ourselves we spend to enjoy today.
Young money is better than old money. It’s way more fun. Trying to leave as little behind as possible. From all I have read Inherited wealth is mostly a burden. We actually don’t buy much stuff. We spend on family experiences. Experiences we hope to gist about when we’re old and less mobile. In the end life is to be lived.”

In other news, CorrectNG reported that a Nigerian lady said she prefers getting married to an internet fraudster who is into Yahoo Plus than being with a man who has a regular job.
She explained that Yahoo Plus Boys usually cash out with the help of jazz so they which is a guaranteed way of making sure there is endless supply of money.
She said Yahoo boys are better than working class men because they can always renew their wealth whenever it looks like money is getting exhausted.
According to her, if a working class man goes broke, he has no immediate way of getting rich or escaping financial problems.
The young lady stated this during a street interview as she further said that the fraudsters have family members they can use to replenish their riches, whereas the guys with normal jobs don’t have relatives which is why they are struggling day and night at work.
She also said she likes the way fraudsters pamper their girlfriends, take them out in their cars and how they act like cute couples with the babe in the front seat.
When asked if she would be comfortable staying with a Yahoo boy that is unable to make money for about three years, she rebuked the idea of such happening to her boyfriend.
She, however, reiterated that the benefit of being with him is that if the money gets exhausted he can always use the jazz and renew it.
The interviewer also asked if she is not scared of the fact that EFCC operatives often go after Yahoo boys, but she said she has no business with them.
