Babatunde Adewale, a comedian better known as Tee A, has warned Nigerian youth to be “very careful” of those who they regard as their role models.

The comedian took to Instagram on Friday to lament that young people are “being deceived and misled by very shady characters”.

He said most of the “sudden wealth” of so-called “successful young entrepreneurs” cannot be traced.

Tee A, a master of ceremonies and TV host, advised the youth to be more discerning on who they model their lives after.

He wrote: “I wonder how long we will all continue keeping quiet while young, innocent and hardworking people are being deceived and misled by very shady characters masquerading as “Successful Young Entrepreneurs”.

“Most of whom you can’t chart their road to success or even identify any sensible structure behind their sudden wealth.

“My advice to innocent folks out there is to simply be very careful of these “fake role models” because many of them are out here right now.

“Please don’t let anyone deceive you, follow your heart and grind your hustle with all you got. Dignity of labour is still a bestseller any day.

“May the good Lord bless the genuine works of your hands. He who the cap fits let him wear.”
