According to Jenifa's Diary Actor, some helps don't love their employers as much.

Jide Awobona wrote:

"I think it’s high time we stopped applying emotions in relating with our domestic staff, when they steal as small as chewing gum like this new one did, take it up (though I didn’t, but gage warning) that’s how I overlooked a lot until the previous one stole $100 from my wallet after several Nairas I thought I misplaced or spent, thinking it will transform his life. Do your work, get paid and move."

"Nah so dem steal my Rayban smart glasses and Apple Watch."


"CCTV cameras can serve as a deterrent. Other than that, their mindset is "Ení se nídi pepe, gbódò je nídi pepe."


"I wish I can do this cos they've showed me alot of shege and I kept on changing till the present one... I kept being overly nice and friendly to my house helps because I don't have close friends around, so I use them to fill the gap. I've tried to stop this, but my personality makes it difficult. I really need training on this because if my current helper treats me poorly again, I might cry since I'm way too nice to her."
