Nollywood actor, Tokunbo Awoga, says wealth is not measured by material possession like cars, houses, and constant show off on Instagram and other social media platforms.
The actor in a lengthy post on his IG page criticised celebrities who are carried away by flaunting with people’s properties on IG.
Awoga said it’s wiser to buy a handbag of 50k and have 1 million in it than to purchase a bag of 1million and have 50k in it.
The actor also claimed that some ladies sleep with card dealers just to come to IG every 5 to 6 months to post cars that were given to them just temporarily.
Read Awoga’s post:
“I seriously don’t know what is wrong with people these days, you post houses, cars etc… You do a picture mix of yourself with the car and all post and start begging peeps to help you repost please how much is that repost bringing to your table???
“Yes, it’s good to have the good things of life but you must learn these things are not for public display, they are your personal achievement..
“You don’t need to buy a car and tell us about your life drama, we care less… It doesn’t mean we are not happy for you but a yoruba adage says “Ti isu eni ba ta, a man fi owobo je ni”
“A lot of people have done worse things trying to live up to the fakeness they see on IG, some even borrow cars and all to post just to live the fake life, I know of some actually warming the bed of car dealers just to come to IG every 5-6months to post cars that were given to them just temporarily….
“When you don’t even have a steady income as an upcoming actor and you went to get an higher purchase car of 6million and above and only dropped 1million, please how do you intend paying the rest, how much are you bn paid per movie, what’s the sense in this foolishness?? Selling your soul to the devil just to come brag on IG or selling your body for material things.
“As much as I don’t want to talk about this, it is becoming alarming day after day what my people do just to come here on IG to display their childishness and foolishness.
“Omo oju o ri ola ri, lo n so omo e ni ola ni yo nu” Instagram is supposed to be a means of promoting your business and projecting your creativity and ideas to the world. You been rich, successful or happy is not measured by houses, cars and all but by greater things.
“There’s nuffn bad in taking a selfie in your car or a picture in your living room but a lot of people need to realise that the car you are flaunting and picture mixing interior and exterior is another mans give away object yet he is not making noise….
“It’s wiser to buy a bag of 50k and have 1million in it than to buy a bag of 1million and have 50k in it… Let’s start making use of our brains, it’s important Ooo.”
