Hey guys? How is everyone?
So we all love social media, right? This is true for a majority of us, I think. I mean, you’ll get anything and everything there. Inspiration, good food, places to travel,fashion, FOMO, people meeting famous people and stuff. It has been used to do great stuff, see #1milliforJadudi. However, it is also a source of pure evil and disdain. Yesterday, an actress, singer, photographer among many other things,by the name Nana Gichuru passed away in a hair raising road accident. I saw the story much much earlier in the day before KOT’s jumped on it. Infact when I went to her IG to see who she was, I thought I had seen her on the show, How To Find A Husband, people still hadn’t started posting RIP messages.
Fast forward to maybe three hours later, and she’s trending, and not entirely for the right reason. Some gutter press blogger had gone digging on all her social media profiles, publicly taken a couple of her posts out of context and claimed she was depressed and suicidal. I was beyond appalled. And KOT’s being ones to never disappoint, swallowed the story hook, line and sinker. No consideration at all for the poor husband, poor family, poor friends who were grieving the loss of a loved one. It is a low point in life you’ve gotten to when you have to use someone’s untimely death to gain clicks on your gossip site.
I am not a keyboard activist. I rather prefer talking about feminism and sexism and fairness away from a screen. However, I had to post this one. To the family and friends of Nana Gichuru, when it overwhelms you, as it will, may you find comfort in God. #RIPNanaGichuru
