Actor Sylvester Madu has recounted how he borrowed money to buy a Blackberry passport phone when it was released so he could ”belong”.
In a post shared on his Instagram page, Madu wrote on how time eventually places value on everything humans have. He remembered when the Blackberry passport was released and how everyone thought it was the best phone yet. According to him, many marriages and relationships were destroyed because of that particular phone.
He said he went as far as borrowing money to purchase the phone so he too could belong to the class of people using the wonder gadget. He said the phone he went all out to get is now lying useless in his wardrobe.
”I Love time. You know why? Because time places a value on everything you have or do, whether it is good or bad, right or wrong.
Let me begin with the Almighty… BLACKBERRY PASSPORT…
You and I thought it was the best of phones, such that no other can be better. Lots of relationships and even marriages broke because of this phone.
I had to borrow money to buy it just to belong
But just yesterday I saw it lying helplessly and uselessly in one of my wardrobe untouched and unused for years…
What am I trying to say….those things you value so much and even dying for, is it really worth it? What will be the value in 5 or10 years’ time?
Some stole, killed, and fornicated and even lost their virginity just to have a BLACKBERRY phone. You can imagine how it trended so much a movie was named after it…BlackBerry Babes…..Remember ..Pinging girls…so who is using the word PING now.? All this were the language of blackberry phone users and now no one will even buy it for free…yes for free.
Finally He Wrote;
Now some have stolen to buy the latest Rolls Royce and end up in an American cage. Even their friends are denying them and have refused to accept free visa to America. What a life!
That latest thing you have now will soon be the oldest thing. Yes, time says so.
In 1999 a friend of mine once said and I quote… “you see this latest cars people are driving now, it will be the old model of my cars” ….end of quote. I pondered over those words for many years until time told me what it meant.
Whatever you do today keep your hands clean… if it’s not for Jesus, it’s not worth dying for.”
