Ghanaian award winning blogger and Ytainment App founder Yemmeyaba urges fellow bloggers not joke with their credibility.
•Yemmeyaba who was featured in 2018 Glitz Magazine Awards top 5 best bloggers and influencers has urged fellow bloggers to do a well research when a story pops out before publicizing on their various platforms. He stated that some unprofessional bloggers are tarnishing the image of blogging in Ghana. They will post false and untrue stories about people for the sake of traffic. He also applauded professional entertainment Bloggers for their effort in the industry.
He took to post this on his website and Instagram page yesterday and we quote;
“While it is in order to applaud professional entertainment BLOGGERS for their efforts in this merry industry, it’s worthy of note to dish a sizeable portion of caution and advise to Quack Bloggers who have earned for themselves Ph.D in bootlicking services for Pelebrities and Wannabes alike; Bloggers who have made the less important the most important; Bloggers with no moral or professional value; Bloggers with no professional training whatsoever. It is in the nature of these categories of bloggers to happily and harmoniously arm-band mediocrity for mere fried rice and chicken!
They’ve no knowledge of what journalism entails; neither do they reckon with ethics of the field. They’re driven by the magnitude of the rumor, scandal, the personalities suspected to be involved without in-depth verification what the truth is.
Their aim is to make the story go viral irrespective of the impact of such publication to the public or the state of mind of the person involved. Let’s not even talk about how such ridiculous stories portray Ghana and entertainment figures emerging from the country to foreigners – in a world where internet has pulled down every stronghold of borders.
In as much as we continue to praise our heavyweights who are genuinely striving to celebrate our celebrities’ brand, strengths, and help give a positive light to Ghana and Ghanaians as a people, we shall also advice those Bloggers soiling the waters with their unprofessionalism to take time out to learn from successful and relevant ones who are doing it right.”
