One of the greatest delights of every Nigerian social media celebrity is to viral on all popular pages, even amala.ng (winks), but the popularity they seek comes with a price as you can not tell if it will be a good one or a bad one. However, can you guide your ways to suit a better choice? Yes, you can. I do believe so.
In this light, the popular Nigerian social media influencer, Blessing Okoro, found herself in a dire situation in which one could have tagged as unfortunate. But before I go further, she has drowned all claims that she is any bit of unfortunate. As she said to her alleged worried fans, family and loved ones, ‘I am fine! I am okay. This will pass!’
This statement comes after she turned a different view to the truth rather than the lie she paraded herself with. The lie quite familiar to all of us, the social media packaging lie. This is the one in which you appear elegant, rich and enviable to your viewers in all social media platforms with a single intention to get their attention and get them talking. From the looking out of the best picture with the best scenery and the best filter, we can say that this is not strange to us.
But it appeared incredibly strange as the highly respected owner of Break and Make – Up blog took to her social media page herself to taunt her viewers of her latest achievement – a well made duplex owned by Onye Eze of China. At first, she denied these claims by posing believable pictures of herself outside to house to salvage the social situation. But she got herself in serious trouble as the owner decided to take the ‘police’ action against her. In viral videos, we see her confessing to her social media crimes and promising not to deceive the public again.
Her tears, however, reminded the society of one thing savaging the land. It is the desire to please. The desire to please the world is one we should deliberately be conscious of. No need to live out a fake life that would end yielding to futile results. It is a wake up call to quench such desire to a great extent.
