The young man, who has obviously had enough of the pressure back home for money, also now commonly referred to as the "black tax," says he is only a student merely trying to survive in the US.

"It muted chats and unticked the blue tick on whatsapp because of you people. Every time I open my WhatsApp, if 10 people sent a message, nine would be billing me for money. Meanwhile, I have told you people that I'm not working, I'm just a student. You want me to send you money to buy KFC while I sit here eating eba," he said.

The US-based student made the above remark in a video he posted on his TikTok page, thejustmyles.
