Ghanaian actress Martha Ankomah has blasted fellow celebrities who live fake lives on social media.
Speaking on Accra-based Kingdom FM, she remarked that some celebs make it seem to the younger generation who look up to them that there’s an easy path to success while in reality, it is not so.
Martha noted that this kind of pressure given by celebs makes the younger ones to go to every extent just to also look like them.
For this reason, they engage in a lot of obnoxious acts which is dangerous for them.
She’s thus appealing to the celebs to educate their followers to know that most of the things they flaunt are given to them by companies for advertisement purposes so that it wouldn’t seem as if the road to success happens within a month or 2.
“I see a lot on my social media page. Most people are living a fake life on social media. Some of us get things for free and so when we wear them, you can see that we are advertising and so if you do not post for the people who follow you to see that this woman is selling something and there is a young girl at home and you write hard work, you’re deceiving the kids. Let people know that aside acting you have other side businesses.
Let people know your side hustle is what is making you take first class flights, because your lifestyles put pressure on the youth. If we are not sincere to the people about what we do so that they do not put pressure on themselves to do what we do.
