In recent times, social media users find joy in cyber bullying and stalking, especially on celebrities and their private lives.
Seyi Law took to his Instagram page on Sunday 2nd March to air his view on the disturbing trend of people making hateful comments of others.
The father-of-one, whose less than a year-old daughter recently experienced some bad mouthing from his fans due to her massive body weight, expressed his disappointment on cyber stalking, and bullying.
He also kicked against the idea of generalizing based on tribal ties, urging people to get to know an individual for who they really are and not jump into myth-full assumptions because they are from a particular tribe.
“JUST MY THOUGHTS. Why is our hand faster for the sword than the hoe? Why are we swift to pull down than laying the bricks? We speak without thoughts and no thoughts to listen. We don’t see the danger in our words, but hold on to the anger it bred.
“We are a generation quick to blame yet, lazy to make amends. What is the fun in casting down another just for lip praise? We want to light our bulbs, but rejoice when another’s candle is blown out. What happened to the humanity that use to flow with emotions?
“Why do we allow the poverty of money rob us of the richness of the heart? A heart that can think right can rise about the sadness of lack.
“Freedom is truly not available because we are in the bondage of Life and Death. Only a mind enlightened with the understanding of time and it’s seasons will truly be liberated.
“A man who knows not his true identity cannot be truly enlightened. I know my tribe is not the same as knowing who you really are. If you don’t know yourself, you can’t build yourself talk more of another person.
“Let’s find ourselves first, refine us and together, we can build a better future for us. Let’s build up and refrain from casting down. SEYI LAW.”

In a previous comment, Seyi Law aired his joy over the arrest and detention of US trained journalist, Kemi Olunloyo. Kemi, was one of the Nigerians who made negative comments about Seyi Law’s daughter’s weight, therefore, the comedian in a mockery tone, said he was happy that she was arrested for running her mouth anyhow.
Mr. Seyi Law said Kemi’s detention would serve as a deterrent to people who put out things on social media to malign others.

He also stated that Kemi Olunloyo had never been entirely right with her publications and instead of people castigating Pastor David Ibiyeomie for detaining her, they should plead with him to pardon and release her.
