Dammy Krane is in showbiz which requests that he be in vogue all the time, but whatever is done illegally, no matter how smart, is a crime – in all climes of the society.
Aside from a wrong perspective about Krane (at home) in Nigeria, he got it all messed when he was involved in card theft against an airline, Tapjets, in the US: he damaged his international reputation for insatiable and material wants.
Unfortunately, many young people (not particularly Nigerians, but all over the world) are caught in this sense of socialisation too. Instead of living within available resources, they want to impress people, and in so doing – mess things up.
Every young person must know that a good name is better than riches from corruption
Imagine a report that states, “He (Dammy Krane) uses Samsung Galaxy 7, and messages did not come from that phone. However, that same phone was used to place the online order with credit card that does not belong to him”.
Even, if he was still being managed by his fans (anywhere in the world) and some organisations are using him or intend to use him as ambassador – he had just got a bad market that will haunt him for years.
What would his friends, family and loved one(s) say? Will they really be proud of him after that incident?
The situation is like what the Bible describes as ‘selling one’s birthright for a piece of bread’.
That is what one gets when driven, consumed by self
As we noted above, there is nothing wrong for Dammy Krane to want to be in vogue: there will be nothing wrong for anyone to desire such too, but when the drive (always) is because of what a person wants people to think of him/her – then, a problem is brewing around the corner.
It is a pity to see many young people living the thoughts of other people: they involve themselves in wearing expensive attires that they purchase with borrowed funds, crooked funds or (at best) living off liberal people.
We stand to be corrected but this way of life will not get anyone closer to the destiny God intended for a person.
Rather, youths should revert to the paths of: integrity, tolerance, patience, diligence, godliness, and faith – which produced several (elderly, successful) people of today.
In other words, when you are driven by self (the condition, in which all you care for is what, how you want people to accept you instead of being real to yourself and the destiny before you), you will not be an original person: you will be fake – copying an illusive lifestyle that, only, exists in media coverages.
Whereas, one of the best things that you can do for yourself is to be the real you, not a second version of anyone.
