A Nigerian man, Chukwuemeka recently caused a stir on Twitter after begging American rapper, Offset for money on Thursday, July 25.
Offset had initially told his followers to request for anything via his #AskOffset hashtag but he got more than he bargained for.
The Nigerian man with the Twitter handle, @Chukwuemaka01 asked the international rapper for money by tweeting,
“Bro I need money”
The rapper, who is one part of the trio that makes up the rap group, Migos, however, offered a piece of advise to the young man.
Responding to the tweet, Offset wrote,
“Gotta grind or find a job until you can fund your dream.”
