The pressure to keep up with Instagram is real and this has led many young people especially women to expose themselves just for attention.
They are living like tomorrow is not guaranteed,their mantra being ‘fake it till you make it’.
During a show on Switch TV young women confessed on why they are dating older men (sponsors) despite their young age and the reasons are shocking.
One of the girls stated that she met Mr Right on Instagram and that she is with him because he supports her lavish lifestyle.
“For us young people we are not looking for a happily ever after ,most of us are looking for stability, I prefer dating older men than me,I find guys my age very childish.
I met him on Instagram and we have been together for six months and so far so good.”
‘Its all about building a brand on social media,I might meet this guy who is
older than me and I might not be interested in him I will only use him to get money.
To get my hair done,nails.You cannot tell your parents that you want to change your hairstyle everyday.
Its all about building a brand and what better way to achieve this than to look for a sponsor?”
Well Pastor Burale who was in then panel was not impressed and here is his response.
“What is the need of having a long term plan while putting your health at risk that you may not be alive long enough to actualize your plan?
For the lady who said you are just using the men,would you go to Koinange and sell your body?
That is exactly what you are doing in an educated manner,The ladies who are in Koinange also use men to get money for the same things as you are doing.”
“Its the same business different geographical areas,One thing I want to encourage you is if you know who you are on the inside clothes don’t make you identity is an inside job.”
