Celebrity and media personality Tbo Touch received a lot of resilience following his recent social media comments about immigrants crossing the South African borders illegally, the 19th of November, on Twitter.

The masses at large bombarded the social media platform after he commented on a video post by which the prime time news anchor Cathy Mohlahlana, of Newzroom Afrika posted, revealing how many immigrants entered the country illegally.

The video clearly shows how a small group of people emerged from the bushes, running towards minibuses parked by the side of the road.

Tbo Touch came across the post, and shared his view, in his response to Mohlahlana, he wrote: “Cathy, we have Home Affairs throwing toys all over the place on #Bushiri when they know we have open borders. There are 4,5million illegal immigrants in SA with no finger prints, valid identity at all.”

See his response below:

After his response, the masses took to the platform, describing and labelling the media personality as “Xenophobic”, whilst a few applauded at him, by noting that the South African Government is not doing enough to protect it`s citizens by handling the borders issue. Tbo Touch then reacted once more, highlighting what had occurred with him and his wife Nandi Molefe during a terrible robbery incident.

Furthermore, the star tweeted that we should not misinterpret Xenophobia and Patriotism. In this tweet, he paints a clear distinction of what his action against the initial tweet means and that everybody must be proud of their nationality!

Has the conversation on Twitter sparked a sense of division and a perception that Africans will not get along?

Will this conversation be ongoing? Will something be done to protect the borders of South Africa and bring people together peacefully sorting out any woes that this very continent is facing?

Its Up To You: People’s Opinions Don’t Matter.

Many different people offer their opinions about you and you should not care!

People will hate. They will be there to judge and criticize you. They always have. It literally does not matter what you do, whether you post a picture of yourself on social media, behave differently from them, how you dress, how you speak, how you address certain factors in this reality, they will have an opinion on every single thing. People will share their negativity, just to satisfy a need within them. They do not like to see you thrive and achieve things that they cannot, so instead they splash some negativity on a positive thing.

“Your opinion is not my reality.”- Steve Maraboli

We allow other’s opinions and perceptions to define us and control how we do things, but at the end of the day, that is just the role of society. The constant judgement and attacks, can be compared to an army of ants, seeking for something to feed off on. It’s a simple comparison but an effective one, that will enable you to give you a better image of how the masses baseless opinions is being thrown at you.

Opinions have no purpose, other than to hurt or harm you. Other’s opinions of you does not matter. They have no sense in the entire being that you are. They do not matter. It can be hard to not be triggered emotionally by hurtful opinions, but you a human being. You have emotions just as the person next to you or in your personal life.

Walk away from negative opinions and perceptions people have of you.

You would agree that it is easy to think that those opinions do not matter and that they do not define you, right? Yes, it is quite hard to put in practice.

Keep your head up high. Turn the other cheek. Do not give other the pleasure of insulting you. Do not allow their irrational energy shove you down a slippery slope and stir you into a hot boiling bowl of anger.

An rating scale of approval cannot define your self-worth. No matter what inconsistent, irrational trolls can say about you, it does not define your self-worth. They do not know what you have been through. Have they been in your life? Do they know your story? Their opinions do not matter. Trust yourself: You know yourself. There is not rating of approval in this broad universe that can determine how you should act, create or be yourself.

Opinions make you depressed and sombre. That is enough reason to never pay attention to other’s judgements and opinions about you. There is no doubt in the world that you would want to go around feeling melancholic. Do not try to please everyone with your decisions. People do not care about you! It is improbable to please someone with your decision, because no matter what decision you make in your life, someone is going to be upset and have an opinion on how you can change your direction on the decision you made and they will judge you effortlessly, on what you do for your career, social media, education, children, the places you go to or even who you associate yourself with.

If they speak about you behind your back, they your secret group of fans.

Do not cater for other people’s opinions. You do not have an additional pen and notebook for every single being out there to address their opinions of your decisions.

You only have one notebook and pen for your OWN views. Other’s opinions do not matter.
