Social media changes everything, Comedienne Taaooma slams Yomi Casual
Social media comic act, Maryam Apaokagi known professionally as Taaooma, on Wednesday dragged fashion designer, Yomi Casual, over his scathing remarks over the recent social media blackout.
A disgruntled Taaooma stated emphatically that people who made it without social media are just lucky, not special as Yomi declared.
WuzupNigeria reported on Monday that all social media platforms owned by Mark Zuckerberg – Facebook, WhatsApp and Instagram – blacked out globally for hours on Monday, causing widespread panic and fears.
The outage also affected millions of businesses and content creators who depend largely on the platforms for their livelihood.
The blackout made Yomi Casual to slam global businesses for depending heavily on such social platforms, stating that people who made it in life without social media are special.
In a swift response hours after his post, Taaooma lampooned the fashion designer over his statement.
She stressed that social media platforms made people like her and others stand out from the crowd, without begging established people to elevate their careers.
She said; “Right now, everyone is nothing without media. Big thanks to social media for giving us the chance to chase our dreams and exhibit our works without waiting on any association or some set of elites.
“However, those who made it when social media wasn’t a thing are very lucky. Why? There was less competition, we only knew a few products, brands and people.
