Basketmouth went on to advise celebrities not to bring personal matters to social media for discussion.

In his words, ‘don’t bring your issues on social media and let people that have never been married before to judge you. At the end of the day, you are entertaining these people. So when you put your life out there, you let people that are not too stable emotionally and otherwise say a lot of crap about important issues.
