2 Min Read

Nollywood actress and producer Funke Akindele has voiced her concerns about the growing trend of ‘baddies’ on social media. The acclaimed filmmaker emphasized that the so-called ‘baddies’ need to offer more than just flaunting their bodies and luxurious lifestyles online.

In a recent interview with Arise TV, Akindele highlighted the importance of content creators delivering positive messages to their audience, beyond mere entertainment. She also urged fans to be mindful of the content they consume.

“I enjoy watching beautiful content, but you have to watch what you churn out. You need to focus on your brand, what you’re selling, what you want people to learn from you,” Akindele stated.

She continued, “If you’re an actor, a self-made person, what are you churning out? You must influence lives positively with the content you produce. And for those watching, are you watching to be entertained or to learn? ‘A’ is carrying a designer bag and showing it on video, but how sure are you that she’s not borrowing the bag? How sure are you she’s rich? Don’t believe everything on social media.”

Akindele expressed her worries about the so-called ‘baddies’ who do not showcase their intellectual capabilities. “A baddie without showcasing what you have upstairs? We need to know what positive content you are creating that people would be proud of. Yes, it’s good to showcase fashion. But what do you have upstairs to show us? Are you just a baddie for show? Even if you are a dancer, what else do you have?” she questioned.
