The advent of the various social media platforms have indeed shown the true colours and personal idiosyncrasies of so many of our celebrities, like they say behaviour is a mirror with which every one displays his own image. The happenings and behaviour excesses on social media are so common and rampant that the situation is calling for recognition as a way of rewarding everyone as deemed fit as regards social media conducts. This awards, Enquirer's Social Conducts will be reviewed every quarter to serve as check and balances for societal dos and don'ts among notable celebrities who're supposed to be rôle models. Please see who got what...

Epitome of Success
Just like it implies, the memento is in recognition of an outstanding personality in the art whose status and high profile lifestyle is unrivalled. Aside being a rôle model to beat, the winner in this category is the only celebrity whose fans team, rate as the highest. Arguably though, not sure there's any other celebrity that has clocked 1m followership on instagram in Nigeria. She's definitely an idol, a shining example, a mentor and mirror with which the upcomers can see-through. Its for no one else but superstar actress, Genevieve Nnaji.

Serial Juliet of The Year
This award goes to a popular Yoruba actress who has been adjudged to have displayed the most gullible and shameless social media conduct so far and also for her indecency and recklessness in ''body offering'' for different male folks even as ssomebody's legal wife. Overall, she beats others in her category to walk tall having allegedly flaunted 4 men or more as lovers over a period of 4 years. This actress who boasted of being a frontline rôle model has been romantically linked to a Yahoo Boy in Ibadan who gave her a car she was cruising about town then, the romance packed up and she moved to another sizzling affair with a guy, Kunle Fatai Shoyombo who later dumped her and married his pregnant lover. She found God's favour not too long after being dumped when she met a lanky, tall and handsome dude who appeared to be the bone of her bone. She had a society wedding and in what looked like a spiritual warfare, she woke up one day again to pack out of the celebrated relationship and as if that's not enough, she emptied every dirty clothes in her wardrobe and began to wash them at the centre of a market square when she jumped on another man called Seun Egbegbe for yet another shameful affair just weeks after leaving her husband. And when Seun threw her out, she employed the services of local drummers who saw her off to Instagram where she danced to celebrate her disgraceful track records once more. The public awaits again, her new found love even though, her body language is contemplating going back to her legal home. Can we have a resounding round of applause for the winner in this category....And the winner is......Toyin Aimakhu.

Queen Of Owambe
This award goes to a girl next door, a fortunate lady and an On-Air-Personality who got her full groove after treating her skin from being a COKE to a FANTA, infact, the gist in town is that, some of her family are finding it hard to believe she's the one owing to her total transformation from skin to new lease of extroverted lifestyle which she's capitalising on it to rule the social waves. Her social agrressive style paid off recently though as the cosmetic freak just cornered for herself, a juicy mega deal of becoming a cosmetic ambassador. She has also had her fair share of matrimony squabbles when her hubby-to-be impregnated former GF leaving her in the cold, and this was the beginning of the restlessness that catapulted her into attending every parties in town whether invited or not like an NTF (No Thinking Faculty). Her catchment area is in '''' different designers on her social pages with a decoy to getting enough to wear to parties. Winning in this category is beautiful Vlogger, English & Literature graduate of the University of Lagos and OAP extraordinaire, Toke Makinwa.

Regent of Parody
This category honours a thoroughbred practitioner in the art, an extraordinary female actor, an award winning Nollywood personality who has been able to step up her game by crossing over from regular acting to a comic dramatist of note. In fact, she has carved a niche of uniqueness for herself by being a household name in a newest genre of drama which can aptly be described as witticism. This can be attested to by the various post of her comical sitcom on her instagram page-Jenifa's Diary. In this category, actress Funke Akindele a.k.a Jenifa rules

Duchess Of Pursuit
This goes to a serial entrepreneur, business amazon, and dynamic investment adventurer who has displayed more than enough passion in her areas of specialty.

This leading actress of note is a beauty to behold with an alarming fashion sense. On daily basis, the population of fans thronging her social media page is tumultous. Actress Mercy Aigbe-Gentry is no doubt worthy of being honoured with Queen of Instagram award.

Drama Queen
This award goes to a blessedly privileged actress who's always daring to be in the news. She's very beautiful but weird and controversial personified. She doesn't care what people think about her public assessment as long as she's having fun. In the past, she has posted pictures of many weird tattoos in different areas of her body; this coupled with pictures of her holding mariyuana are what qualified her in this category.

Lady Brandish

This award goes to a passionate professional, a happy go lucky girl, dame of doggedness who has shown to the world that the only way you can be happy is to do your thing. Yes, she's doing her things but with somewhat of an extra zeal without minding the fact that you don't spread every clothes in the sun. Her professional courage is second to none but some things are better kept within the ambit of privacy. Virtually everybody knows the winner in this category whenever she's working, she's shooting, she's gymming, she's booby, she's shedding, she's eating, she's flying, she's traveling and so on. For the Workermania award, the winner is actress Yvonne Jegede.

Baby Mama

This category rewards a promising artiste, a fast rising singer whose social conduct is being remote-controlled somewhere we don't know. She's fighting hard to have a befittingly artistic image but its been to no avail because of her reliance and allegiance to a set of people. Her idea of always acting and toying with being a Baby Mama on social media has cut her an image of a loose girl in show business. In this category, the award goes to Cynthia Morgan.

Mayweather's $20,000/Night Vac Jamboree, ''No Fronting Needed, Am A Rich Man By All Standard''

Boxing champ, Floyd Mayweather who's arguably world's richest athlete is on vac and the greatboxer has been on spending spree junketing around the globe in company of his daughter, Moneyyaya. Theduo has been spotted together at the famous eifel tower in Paris and later at an exclusive designer boutique where he lavished a whopping $400,000 on high end bags.
The American superstar regularly posts pictures on social media demonstrating his fabulous wealth but his latest purchase in the French capital may well have topped the lot. 
Mayweather, who has been linked with a rematch with Manny Pacquiao, headed to the city of love with his daughter Iyanna and his latest Instagram video shows the eye-watering amount of cash he's splashed out. 
The 39-year-old spent a remarkable total of $400,000 (£280,000) on bags from designer label Hermes.
He posted a video of him doing exactly that with the caption: 'Went bag shopping at Hermes in Paris, France today. I treated myself to one size 55 Hermes Hac crocodile men travel bag and 3 size 50 Hermes Hac crocodile men travel bags and bought @melissiarene a 40 orange crocodile Birkin. 
'Over $400,000 spent in Hermes cause I stay in my lane.'
The expensive shopping trip at one of Paris' most expensive stores followed a trip to one of the city's most famous landscapes, The Louvre. 
It all formed part of Mayweather's recent globe trotting expedition which has seen him enjoy his time away from the ring.
But if reports over a potential rematch with Pacquiao are to be believed, Mayweather may well be returning to the ring in the near future. 
The man who calls himself 'Money' Mayweather has previously indicated he has no desire to return to competitive boxing but the pull of a fight with Pacquiao of the Philippines and its potential mega earnings may well be too hard to turn down. 
Unbeaten in 49 professional fights, Mayweather may also find he'd like one more success to bring up a half century of wins before retiring for good.
The boxing star is at present enjoying life at the Maldives, Indian Ocean and here's what he posted on his instagram page on his on going vac, ''whoever said I wouldn't enjoy retirement couldn't be anymore wrong. How can you not enjoy the luxury of flying out 20 people for a dream trip around the world? Flying on Air-Mayweather and I chartered another private jet just for my luggages and the extra shopping bags, we've flown from New York to Paris to Dubai and now to the beautiful Maldives. I personally chose to stay in the best of the best, a 3-bedroom Landaa estates where I woke up to my very own private beach. At $20,000 a night, you can only imagine the amenities and the view is A1, top of the line. I worked hard and made smart investments, so honestly spending $300,000 on a vacation is just staying in my lane. Everybody is rich on social media but am wealthy in real life. No frontin' needed'', he boasted in Maldives.
Below are pictures of his vacation adventures and the video of his Maldives' breath taking $20,000 a night estate.

Floyd Mayweather, world famous boxer and questionable human being, is no stranger to the high life. In fact, thanks to the multi-millions he pulls in per fight, he's able to flaunt his wealth in ways other can only dream of. That means when he's in a high-end luxury store like Hermès, he doesn't just shop. Rather, he takes dozens of pictures documenting the shopping spree, sets the gallery to a song about being a baller, then posts the video to Instagram. And then he flat-out states how much he spent during the whole thing, which in a recent case came to a grand, grand total of $400,000.

Clearly, the dollar amount isn't surprising for a guy like Floyd. This is a man who once dropped a million dollars on a watch—twice. What is surprising is that he dropped it on just five bags. Now, Hermès is hardly known for its affordability, but even by their standards Floyd's new bags are at the higher end. And if you're wondering what a man would need to do with oversized leather/alligator bags (especially ones that are coveted by women across the globe at that), then consider the fact that their oversized shape is actually pretty perfect for a man who will certainly be hauling more luxury goods in the very near future. What is he going to do? Put a pair of $50,000 shoes in a paper shopping bag?
