Reno Omokri Gives Relationship Advise

When your salary increases, don't buy a bigger car, instead, buy bigger investments. Cars grow older, investments grow bigger. Remember, the day your company doesn't need you, they'll sack you. Don't wait for it. Start growing your business and sack them first. Finally, when you are ready for marriage, note that a wife material must be a lady who adds value to your life. To avoid ambiguity, sex is not value. Even a prostitute can provide that #RenosNuggets"
