The Most Promising Act of the Year at the 9th edition of Africa Movie Academy Awards (AMAA), Belinda Effah, is not happy with Nigerian youths. And she is not making any pretences about it.
On Monday, the 30 years old Cross River State-born Genetics and Bio-Technology graduate from the University of Calabar had made a post on her social media account.
In the post, Belinda, who made her first television debut in the 2005 TV series “Shallow Waters” had written: “Honestly Nigerians have misplaced priorities. It’s so sad. It hurts.”
But comments on the post from her young fans did not go down well with the former television presenter for Sound City.
And the next day, she retorted: “Going through the comment section, I see the mental degradation of the average Nigerian youth.
“When you speak up for a good cause, they attack you because they are comfortable in their ignorance and limitation.”
But she offered a long advice to the young Nigerians.
“Dear youth, everything is not a joke because I know that has become your norm and specialty.
“I know it has become a safety net for you to hide rather than face your fears. It’s time to wake up and become the person of purpose God created you to be.”
Not done yet, the actress who claims that the disciplinary nature of her dad towards his 14 children was very helpful in shaping her career continued:
“Your life is not limited to just making jokes about everything and attacking people.
“Some people actually are driven and focused about achieving greater heights.
“Perhaps you do not understand it, it’s better to be quiet than show your ignorance.”
Belinda lamented that it’s sad to see the constant decline in the mental capacity of the average youth.
According to her, as an employer of labour, she treats her workers with love and kindness.
“But it’s like that brings about a negative impact. They want to be treated like animals in order to function, and this is really sad.
“Wake up, rise up to the occasion. One day you will realise what your inactivity and laxity caused you. Remember you have a voice and your dreams are valid,” she further advised.
