Unbelievable! I make 30k per day-Beggar

By Taiwo Abiodun
How much do you earn per month? Are you on federal or state level 14 or 15? Does your pay check up to this beggar’s pay check? Okay, this beggar claims he makes N30,000 per day after a hectic day’s job from his begging.

Now let us multiply N30,000 by 30 days, and this would make N900,000 in a month. But again let us subtract Saturdays and Sundays (the biggest two days when Muslims and Christians give more to beggars) as their resting days, thus making 20days, then N30,000 multiplied by 20 is equal to N600,000 per month.

It was a sunny afternoon in Abule-Iroko, Ogun State when these two young boys were sighted. The older one was pushing the younger one on a wheel chair. As they were on their business trip, they were also laughing and cracking jokes along in their Hausa language.

When approached for interview they did not hesitate to answer.

Asked their names the older one said,” My name is Danjuma Shuaib, we both came from Kano. This is my brother, he is Musa.”

Asked where they came from and the two chorused,” Kano.”

On how much they make on a daily basis, they both calculated and said: “we make N30,000 in a day.”

On their marital status, Danjuma said he has two kids, while Musa too claims he also has two kids, all in Kano, as he used his fingers to describe the number of his kids.

“What of yayamata?”(wife), they both said they left them in Kano.

The two co-beggars claimed they have houses in Kano and had been living in Alagbado area of Lagos/Ogun State for some time.


On what it takes to be a beggar, just buy a wheel chair, then look for someone to push you around for a fee, that is all. Before you say Jack Robinson you have made a fortune. After all, it pays to be a beggar.
