Comedian, Bright Okpocha, a.k.a Basketmouth, has expressed his disapproval of the attitude of celebrities who turned social media a place to settle their family differences.
In his recent interview with Hip Tv, Basketmouth noted that he was comfortable with celebrities that go to social media to, “I am okay with people who go on social media to make noise but completely oppose those who turned it into church where family issues are settled.
“It is wise for you not to bring out your personal issues on social media and that’s what I stand for.
“Normally, if you have a marital problem, you call your wife one on one. If you cannot contain it, you call in the parents. That’s how I saw it when I was growing up which is the culture I have embraced.”
The father of two gave instance of the crises between between fashionable singer, Tiwa Savage and her estranged husband, Teebillz which broke the internet recently.
He said, “In Teebillz’ situation, the way he spoke on social media really appeared as though he was going to commit suicide and said horrible things to his father.
“Those words were words you say and just die, but now that he is still alive, how would he face his father? It would have been better if he had just written a letter to the man instead of putting it online.
“Unfortunately again, he went to blast his wife and his wife’s mother. These are things that shouldn’t be put online. Another thing is that Tiwa has a larger following than Teebillz, after Tiwa blasted him, it was extreme and it crushed him. He had no comeback; there is no comeback to things like that,” he added.
