‘Celebrities living fake lives can influence youths negatively’
Lagos – A Comedian, Michael Chijindu, popularly known as “Grand Komanda” has expressed concern that some celebrities are living fake lives capable of influencing the youth and society negatively.
Chijindu told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos on Friday that the fake lifestyle of these celebrities had a way of affecting their future.
“I do not subscribe to living a fake life under any circumstance, but you cannot stop people from doing what they like.
“Maybe because it is called show business and some of the celebrities decided to outdo themselves by displaying things on social media.
“So a couple of people do a lot of showing off to keep their fans out there talking about them,” he said.
The comedian expressed the belief that the life of a celebrity should not be all about show off, adding that it was important that they teach people a lot of positive things through the media.
“There should be some level of discipline as to what and how much they let the public know about their private lives.
“I have seen situations where people get into huge debts because of the craze and desire to live flashy lifestyle.
“I strongly believe in investing the money being made no matter how little to enable one live stress free life later in life,” he said.
Chijindu, an indigene of Asaba, was born in Kazaure, Kano State, before his parents moved to Lagos.
He attended Federal Government College, Ijanikin, Lagos State, and proceeded to Abia State University, where he graduated with Bachelor of Arts in French Language.
