"Not replying him shows you're not a mature person. If everyone act same way, we'll all become lonely and have no one to talk to. The new people u met after u made it are there cus you're doing fine for yourself, If they had met you earlier before you made it."
"Maturity in the mud…people who can’t relate with you during struggling moments don’t deserve you when you’ve triumphed. Cut them off!"
"Still doesn't mean you're better than him. God fit bless am too with G-wagon and a mansion in banana island tomorrow, thing is every now and then people grow apart due to one reason or another not because of pride or anything. Different set of responsibility call."

Man saw ex-school mate driving keke
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that a Nigerian man, Akerele Oluwasogo, took to LinkedIn to narrate how he met his old schoolmate in Lagos.
Akerele said that an old classmate happened to be the driver of the keke (tricycle) that hit his car. Just as he angrily came down to check how bad it was, the driver turned out to be a known face.
The two reunited and got talking. During their conversation, the driver said he is ashamed that he is driving a keke to make ends meet and his friend is looking so fresh in his car.
