"Moral Lesson: Don't fake it till you make it. Real knows real. Packaging is cool, but the package is always greater. Whatever you lose, something greater is coming. Not every loss is a loss, never forget that."
"Take this advice at your own risk oo before your destiny helper go see you say you don dey okay meanwhile you’re suffering."
"The deal is not for her, if it was, I don’t think appearance will have anything to do with it."
"It's an open secret. If you want a Multi-million naira contract in Nigeria, you have to appear like someone who has that money already. It's not being fake, it's playing the part for the occasion. You can't want a deal of say 200 million and you come there with an 06 Camry. They might think you won't be able to handle that kind of money. Borrow a good Benz and dress for the occasion."
"Welcome to Nigeria. Where appearance has more rating than intellectual value."
"It's not 'faking it', it's called packaging. As a businessman, you need to size your client before you go sell yourself to them. People need to know you have money before they can entrust you with money. Simple."
Eriata Ese expresses regret about being in the spotlight
Legit.ng earlier reported that the reality star said if she had got insight before she became a public figure, she would not have wished to be one.
The reality star touched on the fact that public figures need to be wary of people around them, their actions as well as words that come out of their mouths to build a reputable image.
She further revealed that it takes a lot to keep up with appearance to remain relevant, and people have to spend the little they earn to paint an untrue picture of their lives.
