There is a mystery surrounding mad people and sales boost, especially those who sell edible things
Most market women, especially the Yorubas, have a strong belief that if a mad person visits your shop early in the morning and you deem it fit to give the mad person for free, your day is already made. Your sales would boom throughout the day.
There is no fact to back this up. But we all know mad people have become spirit. Most times God speaks through them. Many have received authentic prophesies from lunatics.
So there is always a blessing in receiving them at your shop or stall especially when they come early in the morning. They are inexplicable blessings in that aspect. Every cloud has a silver lining.
I don’t know if this belief is only valid only among the Yorubas. Do the Igbo people or Hausa believe in this? Have you ever experienced sales boost from a mad person?
