SIR: There’s something taking place in Nigeria proper now. It’s not political. It’s not cultural. It’s gormless, dopey and injudicious.
Followers of Nigerian celebrities are busy, tattooing faces and names of their ‘celebrities’ on their legs, posterior, brow and on their fingers. They’ll then take footage and ship to the celebrities. Like hostage-taking, they anticipate the celebrities to pay them consideration and pay them cash. Bobrisky has been forthcoming with recognising them and meting out a lot of cash to them. Some celebrities too, are lukewarm.
This isn’t about being woke: What’s the essence of doing that? To point out love? That isn’t real love. Even those that are carrying these tattoos don’t even like themselves. So, they’re incapable of loving another person.
Everybody says: “There’s starvation within the land.” There isn’t any starvation within the land. The place did they get the cash to even tattoo something? The concept is to emotionally blackmail the movie star. Would anybody tattoo somebody’s title on his physique, if there was no web, making it straightforward for the fan to torment the celebrities?
Somebody has to inform comedian skit makers in Nigeria that cross-dressing shouldn’t be comedian. My favorite comic in Nigeria is Mr. Macaroni. I’ve by no means seen him costume like a lady, however I watch each single comedian skit and adverts that he produces. He’s clever, composed, sensible, skilled. Will probably be bovine to check him with the clueless ‘comedians’ who’ve to decorate up like ladies, to pressure us to snicker. Someway, I’ve by no means caught myself laughing. I get irritated as an alternative.
Many of those comedians who cross-dress are males crammed with insecurity, who’re not sure of their sexuality, who wish to use comedy to say what they’re and who they’re, which is ok, however then, lots of them, faux to be homophobic publicly. The concept of eager to be a lady alone exposes the trueness of your male gender you could bend. It’s both they’re stopped or they need to be seen and handled equally like Bobrisky.
There isn’t any must cross-dress, to make anybody snicker. I’ve by no means laughed, watching these guys. It’s off-putting somewhat, to be gentle. And you’ll deduce from them that these individuals are a bunch of ignorant youngsters, who, on gaining access to cameras and sound, suppose they’ll do something and get away with it. It’s scatterbrained. Life shouldn’t be concerning the projections you make alone. It comes with its squabbles.
Cease the cross-dressers who suppose they’re doing comedy and cease all of the rattling with tattoos of celebrities on their our bodies. Cease all of them!
