Toyin Abraham faces backlash for action against trolls who cursed her over

Published

By Francesca Hangeior

Nollywood actress, Toyin Abraham, is under fire on social media platforms after she reported trolls who cursed her for supporting President Bola Tinubu in the 2023 general election to the police for cyberbullying.

Abraham, during the 2022 election campaign period, had declared her support for Tinubu while assuring her fans that the President had reeled out his ‘Renewed Hope’ action plans that would address some of the nation’s problems and she was convinced that he would perform.

Aside from the popular Nollywood actress, other Yoruba movie stars also declared their support for Tinubu and campaigned vigorously for him.

However, since his emergence on May 29, 2023, the country’s economy has nosedived.

On the inauguration day, Tinubu declared that his administration would no longer subsidise fuel.

His decision has made the price of the Premium Motor Spirit rise from N185 to over N700.

Also, as part of his government’s reforms in the financial sector, the naira has embarked on a continuous free fall against the dollar after the Central Bank of Nigeria floated the currency to move towards market-determined interest rates.

This action has led to the instability of the naira to the dollar in the FX market, making it sell for between N1,200 and N1,500.

Both decisions — naira floating and subsidy removal — which are some of the factors that determine economic growth, have sent more Nigerians below the poverty level.

Meanwhile, netizens have singled out Abraham because she had always defended her political choice, with many expecting that she would one day tell the public how Tinubu intended to address the various problems confronting Nigeria as a country.

In one of her replies to an X user identified as #Lati, she noted that she had moved on to pursue her career as an actress and was not in government or politics.

She also regretted having chosen to remain open to politics during the elections.

“I have faced my life and my career because I am not a politician and I am not in government. I have learned my lesson never ever to be open with my political choice again,” the actress wrote on X.

Despite her explanations, netizens have not stopped calling her out as the country’s woes deepen.

A user on X, who identified as #YVRLO, directed harsh comments towards Abraham and her family, including wishing harm to her son.

This led Abraham to take legal action. “It is not an abuse of power; it’s a fight against cyberbullying,” Abraham’s spokesman said. “Everyone must understand that actions have consequences, especially online.”

Recently, another X user, who identified as #Ayo, accused Abraham of using Tinubu’s money to do a hair transplant for her husband.

He wrote, “Mrs @Toyin_Abraham walai aiye e ti ta!! (sic) You collect Tinubu money use fo hair transplant for your husband…stoopid fool.”

Abraham, however, reported him to the police for cyberbullying, and he was arrested.

Following that, a user, Ajebo Danny, opined, “Hello @Toyin_Abraham, you will have to send the police to pick all of us. You are shameless.”

The actress replied, “You can abuse me and call me names; it is fine, and as I said, I will accept and take it in cos I’m in the public eyes, but cursing my kids and lying is what I won’t accept, and lastly I NEVER and will NEVER arrest anyone’s mum. I made a report on cybercrime as a citizen.

“I made my report at cybercrime cos the threat to life and curse and threat on my family were beyond what I can take. As for me, abuse me, insult me please, say anything to me please,” she added.

Hilda Baci Responds to Those Criticizing Her Posts

Published

By

Popular renowned chef and Guinness World Record breaker Hilda Baci keeps getting a lot of criticisms against her social media posts, especially the ones in which she is wearing tight or revealing clothing. In an interview with The Cable Lifestyle, Hilda Baci spoke about how she feels about the criticisms against her fashion choices, and why she will not be apologizing for it. Here’s what she had to say.

Speaking about the criticism she gets for her fashion choices and posts, Hilda Baci said:

HILDA BACI: I do not have to look a certain way to be good at what I do– to be smart, have something upstairs, something to offer to be successful. That is the perception. And that is why a lot of women do not feel like they can express themselves through fashion and then still be capable of killing it in the corporate world, the business industry, or the food industry.

One of the reasons why I do this is because it’s important for me to let people know that you do not necessarily have to conform to whatever limitations or societal expectations that have been set out there for you.

The thing is that you can be all these things and so much more. Because here I am, a 27-year-old, I love fashion, I like to look good. Thank God, I am very beautiful as well. I own those things. I am not going to apologize for that. Because in truth, all these elements are what makes me who I am right now.

The fact that I am all these things does not reduce what I am capable of offering. It does not take away from the fact that I actually stood on my feet for 100 hours. It does not take away from the fact that an amazing team of people putting something that is amazing together, it does not reduce my qualifications or my values.

I am still the one putting in the work. I still like to live my life as well, because it is who I am. And I am not going to apologise for it. So when I see these things, I am like, they will talk. Over time they will get used to it.
