A Nigerian musician, Jack Idopise-Emmanuel, has advised Nigerian celebrities to use social media to model properly and build a fan base.
The 25-year-old artiste gave the advice in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos.
He said that artistes and other celebrities should live exemplary lives and avoid misleading their fans.
“I use this opportunity to emphasise the use of Instagram live broadcast, which is now a trend.
“Celebrities are not meant to mislead the people but to show some good examples.
“Some celebrities are currently turning use of Instagram to pornographic centres, showcasing indecent traits which have no positive impact on the sociefy.
” It really worsened during the lockdown as idle youths resorted to the use of the internet as a major consolation.
“I urge those guilty to desist from this negative act and focus on how they can enrich the minds of the people and probably give them hope in this tough time,” he said.
He, however, noted that some artistes used the lockdown period to engage their fans with several activities through social media platforms.
“One of such engagements was the Bop Daddy Challenge hosted by Folarin Falana, popularly known as Falz, who had fans showcasing their fashion talents.”
The Afro-pop singer urged young artistes to be creative and to do their possible best to build their careers.
“My advice is for them to make good use of this period to learn new skills, build their fan base and research.
“They are not also left out in encouraging the people by producing songs that will bring hope.” he said. (NAN)
