Tonto Dikeh: Life is not as rosy as it seems on social media


The Nigerian entertainment industry is filled with glitz and glamour and it has led to a number of fans envying these stars and wishing to live their kind of lifestyle.
Many times, some of these hard working fans become depressed because they cannot afford what of their mates are doing. Others are also pushed to do negative things just to ‘live the life’.

Well, Nollywood actress, Tonto Dikeh has a message for people who get carried away with the flamboyant lifestyle of folks they see online.

The actress made this known via her Instagram page on Wednesday, February 5, 2020. According to her, people should not be deceived into thinking it’s that easy as it looks on social media.
“Quick advice for young hustling people:

A lot of you come on social media to see people who are having a great time with exotic trips and vacation, and you slip into depression, what you don’t know is that many people plan and save towards their trips. Some people plan a year before or even two years. A beautiful photo that shows a vacation might be a result of saving for many years. Don’t be deceived into thinking it’s that easy. It is not.

Even the flashy cars and houses and phones you see with rich people, they plan and save towards it. They won’t tell you, all you know is that they just got a house. Go and ask them how long it took to save up, and the sacrifices they made to gather up the finances. See, it’s never really too rosy for people as it seems on social media. Just
keep working hard. Save for important things. Save to spoil yourself. ,” she wrote.

This is not the first time Tonto Dikeh will be advising her followers on social media about not getting confused with the lifestyle some people showcase to that of reality.

Other celebrities like Joke Silva and Funke Akindele have at one time or the other shared the same sentiment about the misconception a lot of people have about the lifestyle they see on and off social media.
