Actor Kweku Manu has landed himself in trouble for reuniting Funny Face with the wife and children, and also going ahead to put the video footage thereof on his social media platforms.
In an interview with Peace FM, a certain Lydia Boateng who claims to be sister to Funny Face has accused Kweku Manu for uploading a video footage of his visit to Funny Face in the hospital on his social media handles and making money from them.
According to her, Kweku Manu should pull down the video from his platforms, either than that she would ensure that he is blocked from those platforms.
Some people may have the opinion that this is a classic case of paying evil for good. Others may also side with the so-called sister.
I believe most readers are privy to the background story. Funny Face was arrested for allegedly engaging in a banter with a beer bar operator. He was arraigned before court, and the court ordered that he be sent to the psychiatry for a two-week examination.
While still in the hospital, colleague actor Kweku Manu thought it wise that uniting Funny Face with the former wife would help reduce his predicaments, and so he did just that.
What some people may find unacceptable is that he took a video coverage of his good deed and shared it on his social media handles. Clearly, that is what has infuriated Funny Face's sister into demanding that those coverages be pulled down.
There is a passage in the Bible that instructs believers not to let their right hand see the good their left hand is doing. That means that one must not publicize the good they do. When that happens the good doer has already received his reward.
The Bible goes on to assure that he that does good in secrecy will be rewarded by the Almighty God who sees things done behind close doors.
There is another school of thought that believes that publicizing the good one does is good, in the sense that it encourages others to also do good. Those that hold this view believe that what matters is the purpose of publicizing the supposed good deed. If the purpose is for personal aggrandizement, then it's bad, but if it's to encourage others to do same, then it's perfectly okay.
But the challenge is that, when people do good and publicize it, one cannot tell whether they did it for personal gains or to encourage others to follow suit.
Did Kweku Manu upload the video coverage to encourage others to also do good, or did he do that to gain views and traffic on social media for personal gains? Kindly add your views to the discussion.
