Talking on Showbiz A-Z he explained that the simple fact that a person is buying a role design does not mean that they need to have to emulate the person’s daily life and way of living in its entirety.
He defined that people can opt for which portion of a someone’s lifestyle they like to utilize to theirs especially if they relate to that tale.
“So my caution is that role designs must not be viewed as generalists, it is incorrect to do that. Let us say you’ve received anyone who is a very good human being, charitable man or woman fantastic individual, like Mikki Osei Berko, do you know that there is anyone out there who might be offended by the point that Mikki states ‘I am single’?”
“Someone may say that if he is single by this time then Mikki is irresponsible and hence he is not a excellent role model. Perhaps you may select like a pastor, let us say Duncan-Williams or Mensa Otabil, somebody will say those people are great position products. But there is somebody who could not also plug into all the things he does.”
Mr Agyepong mentioned that small children should be urged to pick or emulate the fantastic attributes they see in a person they take into account a part model.
Making use of Bukom Banku as an instance, he explained that the boxer has lots of parts to him including being recognised for skin bleaching, a political figure and another person who displays how a great deal impact a human being can make no matter of in which they appear from.
“So if my son will come to me and states ‘Daddy I want to be preferred like Bukom Banku’, he hasn’t explained he wants to bleach like him. So I will request why do you want to be like him? He states ‘daddy I want to be a boxer’. There is practically nothing mistaken with that. That is why I say he is not a generalist.”
His comment arrives after quite a few folks started questioning who a role model must be just after Akuapem Poloo’s conviction.
The social media feeling was handed a 90 days jail phrase by an Accra Circuit Court docket for having nude photos with her son and posting them on her Instagram web page.
Some persons lifted thoughts about the lifestyle of stars and how a great deal their actions could possibly have an effect on younger life.
Mr Agyepong however urged celebrities to be genuine about the way of living they reside stating that it is significant they do not converse a existence distinctive from what they are living.
Citing an example, he claimed that if a movie star will make $1000 in a working day and spends all of it in one evening in a club, the youthful individual watching this celeb may possibly want to emulate.
“For me, it will be crucial to say, as an illustration, that here is my $1million deal that I bought. I promised myself a excellent time when I get the offer, so, I am picking ¢10,000 off the 1 million to go chill. When you have performed that you converse to the child that personal savings are excellent, do not spend it all.”
He stated that there is absolutely nothing mistaken with being in personal debt, however, if a individual communicates riches and a daily life of ease, it is efficient to converse to younger kinds watching what it entails, so they do not slide prey to these kinds of life.
