Foluke Daramola, the actress, has issued a strong warning to young Nigerians who are fond of “insulting elders” on social media.
The actress took to her Instagram page on Tuesday to express displeasure over the behavior which she described as a “pandemic.”
Daramola said the youth have “lost their values” and are disrespecting the elderly because of modernization.
The 41-year-old film star also dared the youth to disrespect her, adding that the consequence will be “very grave.”
“This is a pandemic that people are not taking cognizance of. When we have youths on social media writing all sorts of things about the elderly,” she said in a video.
“All in the bid of supporting different parties, we have lost our values. In the next years to come, children will start beating their parents.
“They will start disrespecting them because of modernization. What happened to our value system? How did things degenerate to this?
“This is a pandemic and in years to come, we’ll have a crisis on our hands. When these kinds of youths start having kids, how are they going to raise their kids?
“I beg everybody with everything you hold dear, don’t come to my page to say rubbish. I’m a disciplinarian, I won’t let it fly and I’m looking for a scapegoat.
“If you say anything stupid, the repercussion will be very grave. My true followers know that I stand for value, I stand for what’s right, I stand for culture.”
