Former Joy News’ investigative journalist, award winning author and freelancer, Manasseh Azure Awuni has waded into the current discussions and trolls on social media. Netizens have had to deal with two noisy personalities — Tracy Boakye and Mzbel over a supposed married man they’re dating and how the said man is using mischievous ways to cause commotion between the former friends.
According to Manasseh Azure Awuni, genuine business men are known and they need not to worry themselves convincing others about how they make their money.
“Anyone who has made money genuinely should not be be trying hard to convince the world how they made their money. The owners of Microsoft, Facebook, Amazon etc do not need to tell us how they make their money. The reach of their businesses and their impact, the number of people they employ, and the taxes they pay are public information.
Here we celebrate wealth, irrespective of how it is earned and when our millionaires are unable to explain their sources of wealth, they concoct stories. Such “role models” cannot teach the younger generations entrepreneurship.
Until we stop celebrating ill-gotten wealth and keep referring to hardened criminals as “smart” business people, the “end justifies the means” will continue to be our devastating creed. And we should not be surprised if the younger generations are becoming more vicious and feel entitled to success without working for it.”
What do you make of this?
