Following the controversies surrounding the social media, it has continued to be the comfortable avenue for celebrities to air their views and showcase their wealth. Due to the fast growing nature of the Nigerian entertainment industry, many celebrities now have the financial capacity to acquire latest cars, homes, embark on trips for vacations… and all these are usually uploaded on social media on a daily basis.
Social media has become the platform of choice for the nation’s celebrities to exhibit their wealth on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. Internet users who regularly go through the pages of social media platforms and blogs, get to see the way celebrities flaunt their newest found wealth, which gives onlookers false impression of how celebrities should conduct themselves.
The phenomenon has gone from the ordinary to the unexplained, where some of the celebrities display wads of cash or even upload bathing shots in their houses on social media. The trend has not only attracted fans of these celebrities to the different websites, but it has also highlighted the potency of social media.

On the other hand, a businessman was of the view that celebrities should be moderate in their activities, while another admitted that stars who are flaunting it are as well faking it.
