Social Media begging has recently increased these days especially with the current pandemic of the nation. A lot of people out there are barely able to afford anything on their own, because they have either lost their jobs or their businesses have been greatly affected. So they are finding pleasure in begging from generous celebrities online these days.
In the early hours of today, a fan named Sowunmi Olatubosun took to his Twitter account to beg for money to pay his rent, from famous Nollywood Actress Toyin Abraham.
While this is funny, it is also important to know that the fan may or may not be serious about what he was begging for. However the reaction Toyin Abraham gave the guy, is what has got people talking about, as she sarcastically replaced it with buying him a house.
Toyin Abraham is one Nigerian actress who has been greatly blessed over time and i am sure the money would have been nothing to her if she had given him. But it is her choice to make about it.
However, we can not deny the fact that social media begging is becoming a problem that needs adequate attention, and if not well addressed it would escalate to something more negative.
