Toyin Abraham, a Nollywood actress and filmmaker, has ruffled feathers among her fans and many Nigerians due to her presidential preference.
As Nigerians prepare for the 2023 general election, many celebrities have already joined political parties.
The wife of actor Kolawole Ajeyemi sparked outrage when she joined Tinubu’s trend.
The APC presidential aspirant shared a video of him working out on a fitness bike to prove that he is strong, healthy, and capable of ruling the country.
In a since-deleted post, Toyin Abraham shared a picture on her Instagram page as she questioned Nigerians on what else they need to prove that the presidential aspirant wouldn’t be dying soon.
However, Toyin stated clearly that she wasn’t campaigning for any candidate, but was just jumping on trending topic.
She added that she is a responsible citizen with PVC and power to choose who to vote for.
“What else does Tinubu need to do to prove that the is not dying today? I am not campaigning for any candidate, just jumping on trending topic. I am just a responsible citizen with PVC and power to choose who to vote for”.
Unfortunately for her, her joke was to expensive for Nigerians as they angrily lashed out at her. Many threatened to boycott her movies.
One Ginia Barbie wrote, “Very shameless people. Don’t be surprise she dey do eye service make Agbado Master notice her. At the same stylishly testing the waters to know people’s reaction. Let them continue selling out that Karma is doing pressup. If the state of this nation pleases Toyin let the life of her kids turn out like current Nigeria economy. Ndi ngbu!
One Cute Aijayy wrote, “The annoying thing is this one that wore overall black shedding crocodile tears will burst into laughter after she made that video. They are all same thing including Toyin that can lick ass for Africa. Birds of a feather. Shameless glutton.
