Nigerian actress Georgina Onuoha has advised all die-hard fans of celebrities to be careful of how they go about idolising and wishing to be like their favourites.
According to her, most people go beyond their means to look good for the “gram” She therefore advised against wishing to be like someone who probably, one is doing better than in the real life.
“Like many Nigerians, I woke 9/10 hours much later in shock seeing so many shenanigans on social media. It is unfortunate and shameful. The moral of this whole drama and sitcom is; be careful who you idolize. Not all that glitters is gold,” she wrote.
“So before you go about beating yourself up and discrediting your hard work because one celebrity bought this, bought that, and you want the same, think twice. Can you do what they do to live the kind of life they live and display on social media?”
“Be thankful for your little blessings. Never compare yourself to anyone. Trust in yourself and your ability to earn a decent livelihood. For those quick to tap into other people’s anointing, please be careful and be wary of what you are tapping into.”
“God bless the work of our hands. To those grinding 8-5 or 12 hours daily, God bless your labor of love. There is dignity in hard labor. Stop envying packaged lives you see on social media. Our society indeed has lost its moral compass 🧭.”
“And to think September is my birth month😌🙃. We love peace and harmony. PS: *anointing * corrected in the picture post. 😂 screw iPhone 😂😂.” she concluded.
