Jason Chukwuma Njoku, co-founder and CEO of iROKOtv, has described inherited wealth as a burden, stating that it is the reason he is unwilling to leave large sums of money to his children.
On Friday, the father of three said on Twitter that he would give his children a good education and then leave them to fend for themselves.
@MrsMaryNjoku & I save to guarantee our kids a great education. After that our job is done & they can fend for themselves. We don’t save for ourselves we spend to enjoy today. Young money is better than old money. It’s way more fun. Trying to leave as little behind as possible
Mary Remmy Njoku is getting married for the second time in a few days—to her husband, Jason Njoku, to celebrate their 10th anniversary, he wrote.
Jason Njoku further added;
From all I have read Inherited wealth is mostly a burden. We actually don’t buy much stuff. We spend on family experiences. Experiences we hope to gist about when we’re old and less mobile. In the end life is to be lived. It’s a burden regardless. Structured makes it less so. But burdens still remains.
Jason Njoku and Mary, a Nollywood actress, who married on August 18, 2012, renewed their vows in Lagos ten years later.
Their second wedding was held in the Maldives, and it was attended by many of their close friends.
Mary Njoku’s bridal train included Mary Lazarus, Uche Ogbodo, Moyo Lawal, and Emmanuella Remmy.
They have three children: Jason (born in 2013), Annabelle (born in 2015), and Amber (born in 2017).
