Loveable Ghanaian actress, Jackie Appiah, has, for the first time, landed in trouble after a video of her advising young people to take their time went viral.
In the video sighted by YEN.com.gh on Instagram, Jackie was speaking in an interview in which she said that most youth are rushing to get rich quick in the wrong way.
According to her, those people are determined to do anything at all to get rich and to drive the most expensive and power cars, but it should not be like that.
The youth out there must be patient. These days, everyone is in a hurry. They are in so much hurry. They just want to wake up and drive the Lamborghini and Range Rover. They do not want to climb the steps, the steps of life. You start from somewhere, you start small, before you become big,” Jackie lamented.

She used an illustration of a newborn baby who just does not walk from the moment he is born; rather, the time comes for the child to lay on the bed, lay on the stomach, crawl, before walking.
As a human if someone gives birth to a baby and you see that the baby starts to walk, won’t you be afraid? You would even run away,” Jackie said amid laughter.
She reiterated that sadly, that is how most people are behaving now instead of relaxing and waiting for the right time to get rich.
