When Our Celebrities Speak...... Do They Matter?

video


Nigerian Top Actress, Stella Damasus did her share of venting in this video, which has been in circulation since yesterday and i had mixed feelings when i watched it. First of all i was happy that she echoed my thoughts on the matter in the sense that it's not really about Islam as a religion but rather people hiding behind that religion to assuage their hunger for under aged kids.

Secondly, how weighty are the voices of our celebrities? Do they really command that level of influence? An influence big enough to start a class action?

  1. I had mixed feelings too about the tape, the way she spoke about the first lady was insulting, and how she addressed her fellow celebrities didn't go down well with me too. Bottomline she tried.

    1. Please, she said the plain truth and I find nothing she said insulting. How I wish Nigerian ladies can really be out spoken like that woman. It is about time we spoke out against these fools in government and politicians who keep on telling us lies. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!! Those people in government should know that it isn't about them but us, Nigerians!!!

  4. Chikezie am not saying she's wrong in asking the Dame to come out n talk, she said the Dame is always seen in matters that doesn't concern her, that's rude, Chikezie I still maintain that is rude. They way and manner she asked her fellow celebrities to join is also very rude, there are polite ways to send a message accross

    1. My point exactly!! If someone talks to her mum in that manner will she take it lightly?

  7. Though she said her mind, I still believe that that's not exactly how it went don at the senate chambers. All the same, people keep hiding and talking in their closets yet she came openly with her disgust! As for the words of celebrities being weighty, if they, in the numbers speak with one voice, its enough to cause a change.
