Fans attack Toyin Abraham over support for Tinubu

As the economic crisis in Nigeria worsens, a popular actress, Toyin Abraham, has come under fire from frustrated Nigerians, who have been lambasting her for campaigning vigorously for President Bola Tinubu in the lead up to the 2023 elections.

Whenever the actress makes any post on social media, it is usually greeted with criticism and insults by her fans and followers.

Some netizens even went as far as posting flyers that read, ‘Rest in peace’ about the actress.”

Apparently overwhelmed by the negative reactions, Abraham stated that she was aware of the pain felt by the people. She wrote, “Unexplainable, but God will see us all through. It is people’s pain that is getting to me.”

In a similar vein, the actress blamed political opposition for the bad reviews on one of her movies titled, ‘Ijakumo, the Born-Again Stripper’.

At the time, she had said, “You all went to create a WhatsApp group because of ‘Ijakumo, the Born-Again Stripper’; please continue. You all will tell the world why choosing my own candidate is a crime, and yours isn’t.”

She later apologised for her outburst, and asked critics to share their opinions about the movie ‘with love’.

However, the strident criticisms have not abated.

Replying to one of her recent Instagram posts, one Nkem Diana wrote, “Asiwaju Baby. God will visit and judge you. You have not started crying.”

Pablo Floky said, “How far those things you said Baba disclosed to you, is it not time to execute them? Or is it when hunger kills all of us?”

Another Instagram, Eth, wrote, “You misled Nigerians to vote your ‘mumu’ party.”

Meanwhile, a follower, Ojays, was of the opinion that the followers were being unfair to the actress. He wrote, “All those bashing Toyin, please did she force anyone to vote for her choice? Did she point gun at you at the polling booth that you should vote for her candidate by force? Is she the only one who supported Tinubu, or you all just derive pleasure in coming for her. Please, let her breathe. Plus, how sure are you that your own candidate would have performed any better?”

Meanwhile, the actress had also stated that she was partnering with a brand— Smallyfares— to organise a weekly food bank event in Ikeja, Lagos State.
