The Physics Of Magnetism

The Physics Of Magnetism

As a student of physics, I learned that materials that are easily magnetized are also easily demagnetized. As a lover literature I have oftenly stumbled across the English phrase "Easy come easy Go." The American Pop star Bruno Mars has it as an opening line in his song "Grenade" let me tell you a story about a billionaire called Goddy Anabor.

The story of Goddy Anabor hit his climax in the 1990s in Lagos, Goddy Anabor rocketed to wealth and fame through internet scams, not savvy investments. He published Heart romance magazine, competed withHints, and launched a printing press and security firm. Amassing over 100 prime properties, he lived lavishly, hosting diplomats and keeping dozens of girlfriends in 5-star hotels.

The Fall

When Anabor’s schemes unraveled, his sycophants fled. Enemies bought his hastily sold assets on the cheap, as Anabor drained funds on addictions. His ambitious wife absconded abroad. By age 62, Anabor was destitute and isolated, chauffeuring for friend Mike Biggy who provided housing. The former billionaire faded from public memory.

Present Life

Today Anabor drives a taxi, a shadow of his former limelight. His meteoric rise and fall underscores that true wealth requires integrity and moderation. Had he built his affluence through diligence rather than exploitation, he may have secured loyal friendships to uphold him when times got rough. Yet the faster ill-gotten gains enter one’s life, the faster they often disappear.

Be Careful

Now Anabor serves as both inspiration and caution: without prudence as our compass, summer’s private jets become winter’s food stamps. The company we keep in adversity shows our true selves. Though Anabor briefly captured limelight through fraud, his legacy remains one of warning: true wealth is measured not by extravagance but character. By this metric, Anabor’s riches died long before his last Rolls-Royce drove off the lot

A coder & an addict of Knowledge.


while on my normal strolls on X formerly twitter, I came across the story of a once Nigerian billionaire from Edo State by the names of Goddy Anabor. My curiosity couldn’t allow me to settle on the icing sugar but desired that I go deeper into the story of what became of the billionaire.
