Nigerian comedian, Okey Bakassi, has an advice for those who are quick to write ‘baseless and meaningless’ comments on social media, without understanding the message the writer is trying to pass.
Okey Bakassi who asked such people to spare the world their stupidity, added that there is no harm in asking questions. He wrote as he shared his video;
Don’t rush to comment on any post or topic you don’t understand. Spare the #world your #stupidity #askquestions
Recall also that few months ago, Waje who shared a photo of her mom on her Instagram page, clapped back at trolls with a lovely message for calling her mother ugly.
According to Waje, she shared a photo of her mother on Instagram and a follower said nasty things about how the older woman was as ugly as her daughter, a comment that apparently touched the singer leading to an emotional outpouring of words.
“What happened to us?” Waje asked “What happened to when paying a compliment didn’t mean weakness, what happened to respect and understanding boundaries?”
“Love covers a multitude of sin yet it’s so difficult for us,we have become a people so invested in bringing others down, laughing silently at misfortunes. Define wickedness……. What happened to us?what happened to when paying a compliment didn’t mean weakness, what happened to respect and understanding boundaries, I put up a pic of my mum to celebrate her and someone said she’s as ugly as you. Are we so desperate for attention that we light the fire that Will grill our souls to death, social media is now the place to show hate and some laugh and say its entertainment? Don’t forget! you sow yam na yam you go reap. Who is fooling WHO. Don’t let The devil use you to shine. Love!”
