Popular stand-up comedian, born Bright Okpocha, better known as Basketmouth, has shared his opinion on the negative influence of the social media on celebrities especially on marriages.
He said celebrities have turned the social media into a church to settle family issues, adding that they now use social media to wash and dry their dirty linens.

Speaking with Hip Tv, the father of two said, “I am okay with people who go on social media to rant but I am against those who have turned it into a church to settle family issues.

“It is wise for you not to bring out your personal issues on social media and that’s what I stand for.

“Normally, if you have a marital problem, you call your wife one on one. If you cannot contain it, you call in the parents. That’s how I saw it when I was growing up which is the culture I have embraced.”

He cited an example with the marriage feud between popular singer, Tiwa Savage and her estranged husband, Teebillz which broke the internet recently.

He said, “In Teebillz’ situation, the way he spoke on social media really appeared as though he was going to commit suicide and said horrible things to his father.

“Those words were words you say and just die, but now that he is still alive, how would he face his father? It would have been better if he had just written a letter to the man instead of putting it online.

“Unfortunately again, he went to blast his wife and his wife’s mother. These are things that shouldn’t be put online. Another thing is that Tiwa has a larger following than Teebillz, after Tiwa blasted him, it was extreme and it crushed him. He had no comeback; there is no comeback to things like that.

“If it is a clap back at an artiste like yourself, then it is your choice. Once it gets to family, let those ones be in your house, let your Instagram and twitter group be between you, her father, her mother and herself,” Basketmouth added.
