South Africa is enduring its toughest economic period in recent history following the Moody's downgrades, recession and Covid-19 pandemic.
Prior to the lockdown, the ANC struggled to improve unemployment and poverty and things have only got worse.
Therefore, the advice dished out by Twitter user Koshiek Karan (@iamkoshiek) is particularly relevant during this turbulent period.
The financial guru has been warning South Africans about the pitfalls of social media and trying to live beyond one's means.
Social media influencer Man’s NOT Barry Roux (@AdvoBarryRoux) recently gave Karan the stamp of approval by sharing some of his tweets.
Briefly.co.za noted that the post went viral, as thousands praised Karan for his direct and insightful approach.
The post can be viewed below.
Karan shared some choice words for Mzansi men, as he questioned the rationale behind a girlfriend/ spouse allowance.
He also urged young men to steer clear of the allure of big houses, fancy cars and women with expensive taste.
Briefly.co.za perused the comments and shared some interesting ones below.

"We need to protect this man, he's leadership and saying facts."

"He is saying exactly what many black men have been saying, only to be called all sorts of names like STINGY & USELESS unlike their white counterparts."
"Men here pretending to agree with Koshiek but all they want is slay queens,and women they can control with their money,not a simple woman who only wants affection and attention because men are incapable of loving and appreciating a real woman. They wanna get laid and be free."
Speaking of the tough economic climate, Briefly.co.za earlier reported that the founder of a local SMME took to social media to express his relief that his business will be allowed to operate.
He was grateful that all his laid off staff could return to work.
