Boity Thulo takes her role as a public figure very seriously. Understanding that her actions influence others, especially the youth, is something Boity holds dear to her heart.
Taking on the role and responsibility of being a public figure means a lot more than your primary role.
Briefly.co.za knows how selfless Boity is when it comes to her fans. She is always there to give advice and help out where she can.
A lot of hip-hop artists do not take into account the fact that their actions influence their fans, which are generally of the younger demographic.
Taking to social media to touch on the topic of influence, Boity explained how when you become a celeb you automatically become a role model.
Having your fans look up to you, wanting to be like you and follow in your footsteps automatically makes you a role model whether you like it or not.
Boity also stressed the fact that celebs need to take this unofficial title a lot more seriously than they currently do.
“We don’t have to physically sign any papers to say “I’m officially a role model now” but I believe it’s inevitably our duty, as public figures, to be mindful of our actions and take up some form of a leadership role. #GLAMxBoity Thank you from the bottom of my heart @GLAMOUR_sa.”
