Popular Nigerian singer, Yemi Alade has warned social media users against comparing their lives with people they see online.
The self-styled ‘Mama Africa’ speaking in a video shared on social media, said there is no joy in comparison and people should stop using what they see online as a yardstick for their lives.
According to the 33-year-old singer, if someone wants to be constantly sad, they should spend endless hours scrolling through their Instagram feed and seeing pictures of people doing fun things and travelling on vacations.
She asserted that people should stop this and instead, introspect into their own lives and look at their growth and how far they have come.
