Recently, many Nigerians celebrities turned activist, in a bid to defend and protect the rights of fellow Nigerians. They take to social media to share their views and render advises on issues concerning the wellbeing of the people. But most times, they have gotten negative responses from fellow citezens and one actress that has decided to speak up about this is Omoni Oboli.
Following the negative tweets and comments dished out to actress Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde (in the wake of her faceoff with the presidency), Oboli has said that Nigerians make it difficult for celebrities to speak up on certain issues concerning the wellbeing of the country and the masses.
The award winning actress took to her Instagram page to tender her case to the masses.
She posted the screenshot and captioned;
This is something that really bothers me! Let’s discuss it!
I don’t blame celebs and public figures when they keep quiet about the issues that affect us all because the backlash lash is always so much. It makes no sense at all. Most of these issues let’s be honest, affect the common man the most but they are the ones that will insult your family if you dare speak up!
So because someone bought a car or a house, they have no right to talk about the suffering of the masses? Listen, no matter how much money you have in Nigeria today, you are poorer because you are spending more than you should cos the cost of living is higher and the standard of living is very poor!
Nigerians, na who do us this thing?!!! Smh ??♀️ ? #GodBlessNigeria ???
