The saying that money is the root of all evil is a misquotation from the Bible (Timothy 6:10): “For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.”
That said, famous singer, Akon explains why money brings more problems than comfort. Aliaune Damala Badara Akon Thiam, better known by his stage name Akon, is a Senegalese-American singer and record producer. He has asserted that problems are always worse when there is money involved.
In a radio interview, the artist lamented the difficulties that come with wealth. According to Akon, money doesn’t always buy happiness because a lot relies on what makes a person happy. Money makes you forget yourself and takes you away from your family, thus those with money don’t have time.
Your difficulties are multiplied by your wealth, not the other way around. The self disappears. Finding time for your family is difficult. This is not consolation.
The 49-year-old musician continued by saying that if lack of money prevents people from finding time for their families, there is no consolation.
