The millennials are going through hell in their quest to keep up with the Instagram Effect. A state whereby every photo you see seem to depict a perfect moment in a perfect life.
Many young ladies in their twenties, even others are just 18 and 19, are chasing rich men for monetary gains. These rich men will finance their expensive lifestyle, including buying them expensive gifts, paying for expensive holidays and taking care of other things that need a loaded gentleman.
Speaking during Switch TV program Real Talk With Tamima, most young ladies openly speak about dating older men (sponsors) for financial reasons. This is what they said;
“For us young people we are not looking for a happily ever after. Most of us are looking for stability. I prefer dating older men than me. I find guys my age very childish. I met him on Instagram and we have been together for six months and so far so good.”
Another lady added;
“It’s all about building a brand on social media, I might meet this guy who is older than me and i might not be interested in him I will only use him to get money.”
Funny enough, the brand they are talking about is the flashy lifestyle they portray on Instagram and other social media platforms. A brand they think will make them look well-off financially.
She goes on to add that they need money to change their hairstyles and nails every other day, and their parents won’t give them the money. Therefore, they look for a sponsor who is willing to give them the money.
In response, Pastor Burale told them there is difference between them and those ladies in Koinange Street who sell their bodies to man for money.
“What is the need of having a long term plan while putting your health at risk that you may not be alive long enough to actualize your plan? For the lady who said you are just using the men, would you go to Koinange and sell your body?
“That is exactly what you are doing in an educated manner. The ladies who are in Koinange also use men to get money for the same things as you are doing.
“It’s the same business different geographical areas. One thing I want to encourage you is, if you know who you are on the inside clothes don’t make you. Identity is an inside job.”
