Nollywood actress Lateef Adedimeji has taken to social media to lament about some of the ills of social media and lifestyles being portrayed.
In a post shared on his Instagram page, the actor said social media is short-lived. Many people live in deceit, and faceless people having an opinion about others, either good or bad there’s a need to apply caution.
Lateef said he loves everyone and has tried to learn from negative comments; however, for every person who trolls others, there’s actually true love that lies within them.
According to the actor, social media offers people hatred that is garnished with love and often difficult to differentiate between fake and real love.
He added some folks may not even know the direction of their life but will question other people’s life and point out faults.
While urging his fans and followers to take a reality check on themselves, Lateef Adedimeji questioned that outside the noise and when people get tired of praising or abusing an individual, who are they?
He wrote: Social media is ephemeral, I will not deceive you, it has its cons and one of them is the fact that it can place you on a white horse that won’t lead anywhere good, faceless people having opinions about you, good or bad, caution is needed…
I appreciate every love, I try to learn from every negative comment, but do you know there’s a safe place where the love is actually genuine? Within you…
Social media will offer you hatred that is garnished with love, how do you know real from fake? Folks that don’t even know where their life is going questioning your own direction, don’t dull, you’re all you’ve got
Outside the noise, when they’re tired of praising or abusing you, who are you? Take social media away today, what is left of you? You might want to reflect on that and thank me later… You know na, it is what it is.
