“I don’t care if you or I can afford it or not, if you are willing to spend this kind of money on such useless things I’m not taking you seriously as a friend or business partner. Your perspective is self-destructing and myopic.”


“This is why most black young folks could go broke in a blink of an eye, 200k for booze for 1 night for what? It’s like the money is bugging them to spend it, look closely at the source of the money, robbery, fraud, dirty money, one cant spend hard-earned money like that.”


“We are cursed as black individuals, instead of parading economic success and sharing ideas on how to attain such a success and how would we assist each other in attaining such success, we are parading expensive alcohol as if it emancipates us economically.”


“These people are seriously wasting money out there while millions would kill to even have 10% of that.”


“Give friends millions to spend in your club to clean your dirty money and theirs, so when it comes under the club account through sales, there’s a record for the tax man on how the money was acquired. It’s been happening in these high-market clubs with ridiculous prices.”
