Life not as rosy as it looks on social media- Tonto Dikeh
Outspoken Nollywood diva, Tonto Dikeh says life is not as rosy as it is painted to be on social media.
The actress made this known via her Instagram page on Wednesday, February 5, 2020. According to her, people should not be misled into thinking it’s that easy as it looks on social media.
“Quick advice for young hustling people: A lot of you come on social media to see people who are having a great time with exotic trips and vacation, and you slip into depression, what you don’t know is that many people plan and save towards their trips. Some people plan a year before or even two years. A beautiful photo that shows a vacation might be a result of saving for many years. Don’t be deceived into thinking it’s that easy. It is not.
“Even the flashy cars and houses and phones you see with rich people, they plan and save towards it. They won’t tell you, all you know is that they just got a house. Go and ask them how long it took to save up, and the sacrifices they made to gather up the finances. See, it’s never really too rosy for people as it seems on social media. Just keep working hard. Save for important things. Save to spoil yourself. ❤️,” she wrote.
In 2019, took to her Instagram page to express her gratitude for all the past mistakes in her life which have helped to make her the ‘man’ she is today.
According to her: “I’M THANKFUL FOR ALL MY MISTAKES/FAILURES. THEY ARE THE EVIDENCE THAT PROVES I TRIED. I’ve learned more from failure than I have succeeded. It’s the training ground that’s preparing me for where I’m going. I no longer fear it. Instead, it gets me closer to the GOAL. Without it, I wouldn’t be the MAN I am today,” she wrote.
