Popular gospel artiste Nathaniel Bassey has spoken on how social media negatively impacts the lives of the youth especially when they compare themselves to other people on the internet.

One of the things “killing” people today, is comparison with those on social media which leads to ingratitude. And the moment you are blinded to God’s goodness in your own life, you will easily get frustrated & depressed. PLEASE BE GRATEFUL for the blessings in your own life!
