CRED CEO Kunal Shah

Kunal Shah, CEO of fintech unicorn CRED, in a recent post on X (formerly Twitter), expressed his thoughts on the relationship between fame and skill among young people.

In his post, Shah highlighted a concerning trend where youth may achieve fame without necessarily possessing substantial skills. He argued that this could make acquiring real skills seem less appealing, ultimately causing long-term damage.

"If youth gets fame without skill, getting skilled feels pointless and only hurts in the long run," Shah wrote.


Netizens reaction

The post resonated with users widely, garnering over 64,000 views. Several users took to the comments section to share their thoughts, sparking a broader conversation about the importance of skill development irrespective of fame.

"The problem is fake narrative peddled by unskilled of them being successful which kills all attempts of people to acquire skills," a user wrote.

"Fame has nothing to do with skill (generally). But I think whoever is famous is because they got the "skill to get famous". They got the "skill to cash out their fame". Not everyone who is famous, makes money.," another explained.

"The era of generalists is here. You just need 1 skill - to learn how to learn anything.," a third wrote.

"So true!!," a fourth agreed.
