In Ghana, being a philanthropist seems to be a career.
Most female celebrities on their social media handles have clearly mentioned that they are philanthropists.
But Leila Djansi in addressing this issue mentioned that if one adds philanthropist to his profile, it’s clearly an act of exploiting the weakness of others to his advantage.
She said “If you have to acknowledge yourself as “Philanthropist on your social media profile, then you’re most probably not showing kindness. You’re exploiting the suffering of others for your personal gain”.
She backed her stance with this quote “Kindness, as far as its ordinary meaning is concerned, is free and anonymous. If it can’t be free and silent, it is not kindness; it is something else.” -Joyce Banda”.
