It has become so characteristic of celebrities the world over to flaunt their asserts on social media, but according to Martha Ankomah, most of the things they flaunt are for advertisement purposes but these celebrities wouldn’t let their followers know it as such.
To her, most of these celebrities live fake lives on social media as they do not own some of the things they showcase on social media.
Martha Ankomah added that some of these things they get are for free from business owners who want them to get the message out there for people so that people will know about their businesses.
To her, they should let people know it as such, that they are advertising those things for people so that they’ll know, adding that if they post those pictures and make them believe it is their hard work that got them those things when they actually got them for free, that, in her thinking, is deception.
She said that in an interview on Accra-based Kingdom FM.
“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 from 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,” Martha Ankomah said.
