Popular Nigerian rapper and Big Brother Naija ‘Lockdown’ winner Laycon, has spoken on how he deals with online trolls.
Well, either you’re a celebrity or the regular social media user, we all have trolls on our tails on a daily. According to the rapper he averred that those trolls derive pleasure in pulling down the intellectual work of others.
The rapper added that we don’t need to hate them but instead, he advise his fans to pray for them and to than God for using one as a tool to satisfy other people’s appetite.
“Okay so lemme tell you guys something about people who come online to devalue you or your hard work. I opine that they derive some form of pleasure or accomplishment from doing that. That’s the only logical reason. So what do you as a person do…?”
“You pray for them, you thank God for giving you purpose and for using you as a tool to satisfy some other people’s appetite. You appreciate the fact that your existence makes these people have some form of accomplishment even if it is misguided.”
“You don’t pay attention to them. You just keep doing you and keep motivating yourself. You’ll keep growing and your growth will keep fueling their negativity. But your prayers for them will hopefully help them find happiness in the joy of others. Me I don drop video, abeg stream.”
