Nollywood actress Sonia Ogiri has criticized Nigerian celebrities for acting as though they are going through hard times in their nation.
On her Instagram story, she lamented the status of the economy and questioned why it is that celebrities were now speaking out against food price increases.
She wondered if they were trying to be relatable to the masses by pretending to be phony and whiny.
Sonia questioned why they remain silent when they ought to speak up before things get out of control.
She begged them to quit lying about the misery of the impoverished Nigerians and described it as medicine after death.
In her words: “I laugh in Swahili. Why are some celebrities speaking up now about the hike in foodstuff? Una dey whine una sef or just complaining so ordinary Nigeria go think. Say you dey feel wetin them dey feel? Why do some Nigerian celebrities keep mute when they’re supposed to speak up at the right time before things become bad? Why medicine after death? Stop deserving the poor Nigerians with the narrative of you’re also suffering hardship.
“Things are so hard in Nigeria for common Nigerians”.
