Top Nigerian Celebrities Still Suffering Backlash Over Support For Tinubu

Some Nigerians have expressed anger towards celebrities who backed and campaigned for President Bola Tinubu in the 2023 presidential election, considering the economic difficulties facing the country. Despite public pleas to fans to stop the online backlash, these celebrities have continued to face attacks for their choice.

  1. Toyin Abraham: Nollywood actress, Toyin Abraham, got the nickname ‘Asiwaju baby’ because of her strong support for President Tinubu.

Before the election, the movie star confirmed that Tinubu was the best option for the country, emphasizing that he had serious plans for Nigeria.

However, Toyin’s social media post about her meeting with Tinubu after the election resurfaced online, with netizens slamming her over the hardship in the country.

In response, the actress said that the economic hardship faced by citizens was affecting her, and she could not describe how she felt about it.

  1. Olaiya Igwe: Veteran actor, Ebun Oloyede, popularly known as Olaiya Igwe, in the run-up to the 2023 election, stripped naked to campaign for Tinubu, which earned him online backlash.

He disclosed that Tinubu saved his life after he was diagnosed with nephrolithiasis (kidney stones) without knowing him.

However, the veteran recently changed his mind and apologised to Nigerians for going naked on the beach to campaign for Bola Tinubu. He begged that the abuse on social media should stop.

Olaiye Igwe also explained that his apologies did not mean he regretted campaigning for the president.

  1. Seyi Law: Nigerian top comedian, Oluwaseyitan Aletile, popularly known as Seyi Law, recently revealed that he lost over 200,000 social media followers because he supported President Bola Tinubu in the 2023 election.

In a recent interview on ‘The Honest Bunch’ podcast, the comedian said that it was unfair for people to keep calling him out over the economic situation in the country, adding that he never asked Nigerians to vote for President Tinubu.

  1. Eniola Badmus: Nollywood actress, Eniola Badmus, faced serious criticisms for her support of Bola Tinubu, during the 2023 election, stating there was no turning back on her decision.

Responding to a fan who asked how she is currently coping with the economic challenge, Eniola said she was still standing on his mandate and believed very much in his ability to turn things around if given the time.

  1. Lege Miami: Nollywood actor, Kehinde Adams, better known as Lege Miami, also declared his support for Bola Tinubu in the 2023 general elections and has not stopped showing him full support to date, despite the criticisms online.
