Ghanaian actress Beverly Afaglo has sounded a word of advice to Ghanaian youth to concentrate on leading a decent hustle and not be swayed by social media since not all that glitters is gold.
The actress’s remarks were in reference to a screenshot she posted which read, “At 25 years you should be driving even if it means driving someone crazy, just drive.”
Beverly Afaglo totally disagrees with this thought, saying it’s nice to drive at age 25 when you work hard to achieve that diligently. She advised that they shouldn’t make social media fool them and that all that glitters is not gold. She then mentioned that the youth of today want to jump from 0 to 100 overnight.
She wrote, “I saw this somewhere n it’s supposed to be funny or maybe an advice to young ladies …. WRONG Listen young ladies and young men, when we were growing up, the dream wasn’t to drive a car at age 25 or driving a man or woman crazy, yes we all did our bit of dating but at that age, the concentration was all about education or what’s next to better your life after school and most women had countless marriage proposals around this age 25-26,the boys were serious with school, apprenticeship of some sort or looking for a job.
The youth of today have changed the game, they want to change the cycle to rather start from the top or jump from 0 to 100 overnight…It’ll be a great achievement if u drive your own car at 25 and we’re proud because u worked decently and diligently for it.
My dear handsome, beautiful and intelligent young men and women, don’t let social media fool u, all that glitters isn’t gold and there is honour in going thru the right Chanel to make your own money.
Last year I visited the prisons and there were many young boys in prison, why? All the reason is money, women and the fast life. We all are on different journeys, u might get there but still wait for that one thing u so desire and I’ll get there later but carrying that very thing u’v been waiting for in years(idiom) ……
Dear good girl, good boy, responsible young adult, I encourage u today not to give up cos someday soon your hard work and decency will pay off 🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽
