Nollywood actress, Adunni Ade is not finding freedom of expression on media platforms by Nigerians very funny at the moment. Fresh from her outburst against national daily, Punch, where she berated the publication for allegedly harassing and writing falsehood about her, the fair lady has taken to her Instagram again to vent her anger against what she considers to be too much negativity in the country.

The mother of two wrote:

”If we had the power to see other people’s lives and how it’s being lived, kassala go burst! So much negativity out here in this country (yea, talking about Nigeria) You see men becoming children once again and women just plain uncontrollable all in the name of “Social Media” . Who can outshine who in using their “data” in bashing fellow human beings. I am certainly not a saint but damn, let “cyber bullying ” not be amongst your offense(s) counted against you on the day of judgement.

How you wan take explain am? I was jealous because she is light skinned, I was upset he is rich. C’mon! I have said this severally, focus on you o and you only! Better yourself so you can have mouth to encourage others. No need for name calling, bashing , evil plots… It is hurtful! No one holy pass! … But then again, what do I know? Let me continue with my work….and action! ”

Adunni might have a point, but maybe she should just rein in that part of calling out the media when it’s not in her favour just a bit. Clap-backs are usually not the best way to handle perceived misrepresentation by the media. That said, she does have a valid viewpoint here, don’t you think?
