The lockdown in Nigeria has called for a lot of uproars and mixed reactions from entertainers to big corporates down to the masses and so far it appears everyone is on the edge. The new order of virtual interaction has also spiked up resulting in the daily usage of social media to keep conversations going.
The past few days have seen different coping mechanisms floated on the media with celebrities and their fans opting to Instagram live chats and constant conversations on twitter. Amidst the adaptation various backlashes have ensued, clout chasing schemes have also been on the rise.
Recall that yesterday comedian FunnyBone expressed in an interview his position with the way the Igbo ethnicity, especially with their women, have been made to think, he said;
“From childhood, she’s been taught that all she need do is grow up, you are a fine girl, a rich man will come and marry you. That is the average Igbo girl mentality. I am Igbo, you know, I am saying this with no apology to anybody here who is Igbo. Am being honest, the average Nigerian Igbo girl, average, the mindset is am a fine girl.” read here.
The post which generated a lot of reactions tore his camp into two with many of the opinions that the statement was blasphemous since he was an Igbo guy. In the same vein, Nollywood actress Onyii reacted to Funnybone with a picture post and the actress wrote ;
“Since this pandemic men just Dey use girls Dey trend🤔even the married men 😡Biko who no like better thing? But one thing I’m sure of is that Igbo girls Dey hustle die.,Dey know where Dey r coming from… Forget social media oo! Shoutout to all my Igbo sisters that don’t wait for any man.”
“An average Igbo girl is embedded with beauty and a strong hustle spirit 💪 we learned from our mothers💯F**k that broke men mentality❌ Igbo girls are allergic to poverty” #ProudlyIGbo#IgboAmakA#
