The popular Comedian, actor and TV presenter Ayo Makun took to his Instagram page to express that Celebrities Who Gives to the Society Are to Be Encouraged and Not Insulted.
a view he shared based on how people criticize the kind gestures of celebrities instead of encouraging them.
The comedian said that many people always find fault when celebrities do things for society
whether they publish it on their social media pages or not.
Many times, celebrities have been called out on various social media platforms for being
aloof to serious situations in the country and when celebrities respond to these situations,
some people still find a way to criticize them.
Noting his disappointment at this attitude, AY urged people to do better.
“When celebrities give to people in need without letting you know anything about it,
you say to them “All you Yeyebrities are busy posting pictures of your houses
when your mates are doing a lot to help people who are hungry out there”.
When we respond by letting you know how we have been doing a whole lot to help,
some of you ask for proofs by saying
” Please don’t come here and tell us how you’ve been helping people with what we can’t see or confirm”.
When we now give and let you in our business, you come to us again and call it ‘showoff’,” he said.
The actor noted that people tend to celebrate companies who announce their good deeds to the world but attack celebrities who do the same.
AY said that they are told to do it quietly, adding that they do not have to know on social
He urged people to criticize constructively without making a waste of the efforts of others.
He advised everyone to make it their responsibility in changing the things they don’t like by encouraging each other respectfully.

The major problem we have concerning the act of giving in Nigeria, are people who lace good thoughts with insults to the detriment of the givers. When celebrities give to people in need without letting you know anything about it, you say to them "All you Yeyebrities are busy posting pictures of your houses when your mates are doing a lot to help people who are hungry out there". When we respond by letting you know how we have been doing a whole lot to help, some of you ask for proofs by saying " Please don't come here and tell us how you've been helping people with what we can't see or confirm". When we now give and let you in our business, you come to us again and call it 'showoff'. When companies operating within our environments gives to the people and announce it to the public with bigger events and unveilings, you applaud them and accept the ideas as good acts of Corporate Social Responsibility. But when celebrities with brand names do exactly same,You will still sneak in on them with your negative comments, and call them 'Audio Givers or Showoff Kings/Queens. You even sometimes attack them by saying " Do it quietly, we don't have to know on social media". It is actually okay to make constructive suggestions or share better ideas on how to give to those in need, without trying to indict the people that are at least making some efforts. Let's make it our responsibility to do the best we can in changing the things we don't like by encouraging each other respectfully. Rather than have a picture of someone 'showing off' in your head, celebrate the individual who is doing what the government is not doing for its citizens in need. Social responsibility is what everybody is entitled to do in their own ways
