Former Big Brother Africa housemate, Tayo Faniran, took to social media to talk about African youths who live fake lives on social media.
Taking to his Instagram page, he wrote that many youths on the continent are more concerned about a competition that doesn’t actually exist, leading them to live fake lives on social media.
Tayo Faniran advised young people to look for real things to do, and not get immensered in the fake social media life.
“If you are on social media and faking a lifestyle and personality you never had,you aren’t different from someone walking around with a toothpick in his mouth but have not eaten meat 😂,it means in the real sense you are just fooling only yourself,Na hunger go kill such a person.
My advice to you : please look for and find real things that will fill you up,ways to real joy and not staged happiness or comfort,seek help,it’s ok to not have,it’s ok to be at a low point ,it’s ok to be broken,crying out is not the shame but pampering and covering your downfalls and problems like a bad cake with perfect icing will only lead to eternal shame and destruction of what’s meant to be a perfect life story,
African youths start using your heads, many of you feel like something but your brains are actually empty living for a competition that does not exist, find yourselves and fulfill the purpose of your existence 🙏🏿 #Africa ✊🏿”
