Published

on

Veteran actress, Ireti Doyle has penned an appreciatory note for her colleague, Adesua Etomi-Wellington as she recounts how she stopped her daughter, Jemiyo from being bullied in school.

Ireti in an Instagram post disclosed that her daughter enrolled in a new school and subsequently vied for a position in the Students Council and won.

This however displeased other students as they questioned why her daughter would win a position in the school barely after admission.

According to Doyle, this resulted in her daughter being bullied by these students and when she wanted to intervene, Jemiyo wouldn’t let her.

However, the act of bully from the students ended after Adesua offered to pick Jemiyo up from school and deliberately strolled with her hand on her shoulder while other students watched in awe.

The influence of a star like Adesua ended the bullying act immediately.

The post reads:

“*NOT SO RANDOM STORY
Sooo sisi kekere (can I still refer to her like that?🤔) had just transfered to a new school having spent her entire academic career up to that point in one place.
It took a whole summer of convincing, but I finally caved in – do not underestimate @jemiyodoyle once she’s set her mind on a thing.
Anyways, she arrives, bright and bubbly eager to take on new territory and blossom, which she did. Within months of arriving she vied for and won a position on the students Council.
Apparently that’s not allowed. “You cannot just arrive here and begin to “shine” without “permission”.
Oh the bullying was aggressive! And most of the time, she would beg me not to step in, determined to make her own way.
Anyways Mrs. Wellington heard about the goings on and said “Auntie, I’m going to go pick Jem from school one day”… I said OK.
On said day, she asked me to sit in the car. It took longer than usual…
@adesuaetomi didn’t just “pick” her from schl…she took her time to stroll round the schl compound with her arm around Jemiyo, waving at the students who had become dumbstruck. The message was clear : “This is my Beloved, thou shall not touch”. Suffice to say the bullying died down significantly from that day – true star power.
Jem has kolobied many of my friends, who have poured into her…some for a season, for some, just a brush…you have no idea how powerful just one brush from the right person is in molding a young mind. It truly takes a village…the 3 people captured here represent mine.
To everyone who has ever touched Jems life positively…THANK YOU🙏🏽
I also want thank the multitude of my online village too, for your warm wishes and prayers…Omo a ye gbogbo wa, a o ni se ti, ni oruko Jesu!!!❤️”

K1 to Tinubu: Nigerians are crying, suffering, wailing daily over high cost of food, poor living condition

Published

on

Renowned musician King Wasiu Ayinde, popularly known as K1, has made an appeal to President Bola Tinubu, urging him to address the challenges faced by Nigerians amidst the soaring cost of living, food, and essential items.

K1, a staunch supporter of President Tinubu and the All Progressives Congress (APC), played a pivotal role in Tinubu’s presidential victory, leveraging his influence in entertainment and social circles.

In an open letter addressed to the President and also in a video, K1 emphasized the urgent need for a reassessment of economic policies to alleviate the burdens of ordinary Nigerians.

The musician particularly highlighted the alarming depreciation of the Naira against the U.S. dollar, which has contributed significantly to the prevailing economic hardships.

Expressing concern over the mounting socio-economic cries and sufferings of the populace, K1 urged President Tinubu to implement measures that would provide relief to the common man.

He underscored the disillusionment among voters who, having supported Tinubu in the 2023 elections, now felt disheartened by the lack of visible improvements in their daily lives.

Acknowledging the accusations directed at him for influencing people’s votes, K1 remained optimistic that President Tinubu would soon enact policies to reverse the current tide.

Despite the criticisms, the musician reaffirmed his belief in Tinubu’s leadership and expressed hope that the president would prioritize the welfare of the Nigerian people.

As K1 urged a review of economic strategies, he also stressed the importance of pushing out palliatives to cushion the impact on citizens.

The open letter served as both a plea and a call to action, encouraging President Tinubu to address the concerns of a nation in distress and reaffirm the faith placed in his leadership during the electoral process.
