Actress, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde in reaction to Elon Musk wealth, has stated that success cannot be measured by the amount of money an individual posses alone.
The billionaire business magnate, Elon Musk became the richest person in the world, with a net worth of more than $185 billion, pushing him past Jeff Bezos, who had been the richest person since 2017 and is currently worth about $184 billion.
The report of the 49-year-old entrepreneur’s net worth and status sent Nigerian Twitter users into a frenzy.
The actress however made the statement while responding to a tweet by a Twitter user on Elon Musk. The user had written that Musk achieved the feat despite not being a religious person.
He had written
“Elon Musk, an atheist, just became the richest man in the world. No tithes, no offerings, no breakthrough seeds, just innovation. If you like still drop your January salary as first-fruit seed.”
The young man’s tweet caught the attention of Omotola, who schooled him about her perceived measurement of success. She stated that success is not measured by money alone as one can be the richest in the world and have no joy, purpose or fulfillment.
“Success is not measured by Money ALONE. You can be the richest in the world and have No joy , purpose or fulfillment … be empty. Why not do all? Be innovative, spiritual and make your money… very possible.”
