Toyin Abraham, a well-known Nollywood actress and director, has responded to those who have criticized her for endorsing Bola Tinubu's candidacy for president of the All Progressives Congress, APC.
Remember how the actress announced she would support Tinubu for president earlier in January during a live interview on the well-known talk show Your View? She did so because she admires what he has done for the entertainment industry.
Since making her statement, the actress has received criticism, insults, and trolling on social media.
During a live Instagram chat with actress Kemi Afolabi, the unfazed Toyin said those who cursed her over her preferred candidate were wasting their time. She was speaking amid the backlash.
“If anybody curses me or swears for me, it can’t affect me because I didn’t collect a dime." It’s only those that took money that can be affected. I, Oluwatoyin, didn’t collect money, and neither did I campaign for anyone, but we’re having this discussion because this is my country; I’m Nigerian, and I gave birth to my child here.
“Nobody can pay me." I sell my movies in cinemas, I sell them on platforms, I’m making my money, and I’m fine. "The point is to choose your candidate, and don’t bully me.”
