Religious festivities are always a giving season and most people either spend it with their family or try to put smiles on people's faces by sharing all that they can.
It was no different during 2018 Christmas, a lot of Nigerian celebrities and families blessed the less privileged with gifts of food and clothing.
While it was remarkable that people let the good of their heart prevail in the festive season, some other people interpreted it as grandstanding and condemned it. One of such people is Nollywood actress, Shan George.
In a post shared on her Instagram page, 48-year-old George shaded some Nigerian celebrities who do giveaways on Instagram. She claimed that some of them are aware of their mothers' starving in the village with no rice to celebrate Christmas but have the effrontery to go on giveaway sprees on social media. Like it is often said; charity begins at home.

It is true that social media has birthed a rising population of "grand-standers" who do good just for the camera these days. It is why many people can relate to Shan George's post and to an extent, agree with her criticism.
However, some people are natural humanitarians and will go above and beyond for people who need help. Recently, Tonto Dikeh was spotted marking the New Year in style. Appearing to be channeling her inner Mother Theresa, the mother of one fed about 500 lees privileged children as well as present them with gifts of all sorts.
