Nollywood actress Chioma Okoye has had enough of fellow women flaunting a luxury lifestyle on social media without any verifiable source of income, and she recently voiced out her strong reservations.
The movie star in a lengthy post shared on Instagram noted that such women only show off their assets with little or no information about the businesses that afford them enough profit to acquire the things they flaunt.
Okoye in her post noted that people may submit that how others acquire their wealth should not be anyone’s business. She, however, made it clear that anyone who shows off achievements on social media also owes the public an explanation as to the things they got involved in to afford their lifestyle.
The actress said that despite the fact that the country is in the middle of a pandemic, and there are people who are suffering, yet these set of women still come on social media to brag about their wealth and how their businesses are still thriving.
She said: "Basically, we are still in the frontlines of a pandemic and things are inexplicably hard for almost everyone but your business is thriving. At least, that’s what you make us believe on social media. My dear, you will not die when you share your truth with the world."
Okoye said the implication of such display is mostly felt by young ladies who are pressured into acquiring the self-acclaimed luxurious lifestyle which is being portrayed.
She urged fellow women to stop showing off ill-gotten wealth under the guise of hard work.
"Stop rubbing your ill-gotten wealth on our faces with that ‘hard work’ narrative," Okoye wrote.
