When people ask me why I am not bothered about social media insults, including insults targeting my wife. I tell them that, unless someone like them mentions certain insults to me, I wouldn’t even know they exist. And also, most of the women who insult my wife on social media wish they were in her shoes—they do so purely out of jealous and self-inflicted anger.
I explain to them that, my wife is too busy enjoying her beautiful life and she is not on any social media platform. She has a Facebook account which is used by me and two other GhanaCelebrities.Com’s writers to manage our advertisements on GhanaCelebrities.Com’s Facebook page so she wouldn’t know about anything being said about her—unless I tell her.
For me, you must be bored to sit around on the internet, writing and reading stupid comments from arguably pathetic strangers. Unless I want to respond to a certain post I’ve made online which I would pay particular attention to accompanying alerts, I don’t go back to any article or post I’ve written, wanting to find out what people are saying. I can always use that time prudently, by writing a new article—especially when it has been long established that social media is largely full of idiots and bitter souls.
I don’t know what time you may be reading this but I am writing this piece at 05:30 am—I will leave for the Law Firm and work from 9:30 to about 6:30. With “time being of the essence” to me, why would I want to waste any sitting on social media to be writing insults that wouldn’t fetch me any money or change anything in my life? People are extensively bored and depressed.
A few weeks ago, I visited one of my friends in East London and she brought up this same conversation in relation to a post I had made that day—that was receiving numerous comments on GhanaCelebrities.Com’s Facebook page, of which many were insults.
So I decided to demonstrate something to her: I said, can we take just 10 minutes and click on at least 50 of the profiles of those insulting to just view their photos and profile content and use that as a prima facie evidence in establishing their calibre of persons.
It was as bad as that lunatic, Dela Goldheart insulting Ace Ankomah or unemployed smelly hair members of Pepper Dem gang, talking about women empowerment and telling others how to run their lives and relationships when they don’t have any.
The truth is, a lot of people have nothing to do with their lives: they are bitter about their own lives and instead of working on changing their situations, they would rather mount assaults on anyone living their dreams on social media.
You would find folks sitting in wretched trotro and sweating heavily under Ghana’s scorching sun, on their cheap China phones and aided by their 1 Cedi bundle, insulting others, for their achievements.
Yesterday, GhanaCelebrities.Com published a post to celebrate the one-year marriage anniversary of Kwame A-Plus and AkosuaVee and to wish them well for the many years ahead. As usual, the pseudo-social media intellectuals and members of the bitter kingdom came out to attack the couple, claiming that one year of marriage is not an achievement—“blah blah blah”.
With all contempt intended, these commenters, mostly women do not probably even have a boyfriend, let alone someone wanting to marry them (share his life with them)—and the guys, they cannot probably afford more than two boxer shorts, let alone be able to afford to marry a woman and take care of one.
If spending one year with the person you love in a marriage is not an achievement, what else is? Certainly, it’s not sitting on social media every day and typing nonsense which you are not being paid for.
Anyway, who determines what people should celebrate in their lives? Any achieving person wouldn’t be running from one page to another on social media, insulting people.
Happy one-year anniversary AkosuaVee and A-Plus. I wish you the best and many more years of a happy union. One day when we buy that holiday villa in Marbella.
