Nollywood actress, Sonia Ogiri has asked Nigerian celebrities why they prefer to keep silent about things happening in the country till they worsen.
She lamented the state of the economy on her Instagram story and asked why it is that celebrities are now talking out about the price increase of foodstuffs. She questioned whether they were acting fake and complaining in an attempt to be understood by the general public.
She asked why, when they should speak up before things get out of hand, they stay silent.
She wrote; “I laugh in Swahili. Why are some celebrities speaking up now about the hike in foodstuff? Una dey whine una sef or just complaining so ordinary Nigeria go think. Say you dey feel wetin them dey feel? Why do some Nigerian celebrities keep mute when they’re supposed to speak up at the right time before things become b*d? Why medicine after death? Stop deserving the poor Nigerians with the narrative of you’re also suffering hardship.
Things are so hard in Nigeria for common Nigerians”.
