Why I’m worried about social media ‘baddies’

Nollywood actress and producer Funke Akindele has expressed concerns over the ‘baddies’ trend among females in the social media.

The record-breaking filmmaker said she’s worried about the “so-called baddies” because they have to be more than just flaunting their bodies and luxurious lifestyles on social media.

Speaking in a recent interview with Arise TV, Akindele said it’s important for content creators to pass positive messages to their audience beyond just entertaining them.

She also advised fans to mind the kind of content they consume.

“I enjoy watching beautiful content, but you have to watch what you churn out. You need to focus on your brand, what you’re selling, what you want people to learn from you,” Akindele said.

“If you’re an actor, a self-made person, what are you churning out? You must influence lives positively with the content you churn out. And for you that are watching content, are you watching to be entertained, to learn? ‘A’ is carrying designer bag and showing you on video, how sure are you that’s she’s not borrowing the bag? How sure are you she’s rich? Don’t believe everything on social media.

“I’m so worried about these so-called baddies. A baddie without showcasing what you have upstairs? We need to know what you are doing, what positive content you are doing that people would be proud of. Give us that on the table. Yes, it’s good to showcase fashion. But what do you have upstairs to show us? Are you just a baddie for mouth? Even is you are a dancer, what else do you have?”
