China Bans Celebrities From Showing Off Their Wealth On Social Media

Published

on

China has banned its celebrities from showing off their wealth on social media in the latest crackdown on the entertainment industry.

The Cyberspace Administration of China made the announcement on Tuesday that celebrities in the country will not be allowed to ‘show off wealth’ or ‘extravagant pleasure’ on social media.

The rules also prevent celebrities from publishing false or private information, provoking fans against other fan groups, and spreading rumours.

Business Insider also reports that social media accounts of both celebrities and fans will be required to adhere to ‘public order and good customs, adhere to correct public opinion orientation and value orientation, promote socialist core values, and maintain a healthy style and taste’.

The new rules are put in place amid a crackdown on celebrity culture in China as the country continues to strengthen its grip on the entertainment industry.

In September, China’s celebrities were warned they must ‘oppose the decadent ideas of money worship, hedonism and extreme individualism’ at an entertainment industry symposium hosted by the Communist Party.

The meeting in Beijing ran with the slogan: ‘Love the party, love the country, advocate morality and art.’

It was attended by senior party officials and showbusiness bosses who were told they must conform to social ethics, personal morality, and family values.

Attendees of the conference were told they must ‘consciously abandon vulgar and kitsch inferior tastes, and consciously oppose the decadent ideas of money worship, hedonism, and extreme individualism,’ according to state media.

A list of ‘misbehaving celebrities’ who have allegedly been blacklisted by Beijing was circulated on social media in August.

Zhao, 45, and Zheng, 30, were both on the list, along with Chinese-Canadian pop star Kris Wu, who was arrested on suspicion of rape earlier this year.

“I am not the best, I am the one” – Sarkodie says

Published

on

“The lizard that jumped from the high Iroko tree to the ground said he would praise himself if no one else did.” The quote is from the book f Things Fall Apart by the renowned Nigerian writer Chinua Achebe.

Perhaps riding on the above-mentioned proclamation by the African celebrated novelist, Ghanaian rapper Sarkodie has accordingly blown his own trumpet

That is to say, after so many years in the music industry with hit songs and countless awards, Sarkodie says he is not only the best when it comes to the craft but he is in fact, the one, ceteris paribus!

In a tweet on Sunday, November 28, 2022, Sarkodie wrote “I’m not the best, I’m the one”.

Sarkodie’s claim to be the one has been accepted by “SarkNatives”, but those who have mad love for good music built on thought-provoking lyrics, Sarkodie is not the one as he erroneously envisaged.
