Veteran Nollywood actress, Kate Henshaw, has reacted to the trend of Nigerian politicians celebrating the graduation of their children on social media amidst the ongoing strike embarked on by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).
Naija News reports that this is coming after the wife of the President, Aisha Buhari, took to social media to celebrate the graduation of her daughter-in-law from a UK university. In a post shared on her Twitter page, Kate wondered if universities in the country would be shut down, even for a day, if children of political leaders are schooling in Nigeria. According to the actress, politicians rub the situation on the faces of citizens that they do not care, while they celebrate the graduation of their children schooling abroad. She added that citizens should ensure they vote wisely in the 2023 elections. She wrote: “If their children were schooling here, do you think the Universities will be shut for even one day?? “Instead, they rub it in your faces that they don’t care while they celebrate with glee the graduation of their children in the abroad. VOTE WISELY!!.”
I Used To Steal Food – Tems
Meanwhile, Nigerian singer-songwriter, Temilade Openiyi, better known as Tems, has opened up about the dark times in her life when she was forced to steal food to survive. Tems disclosed this during her interview with GQ magazine where she stated that she was very broke and hopeless during that period, and had to visit an aunt to get food which she would then take home.
She said; “There were times when I was not just broke; I was broke and hopeless. I used to steal food. I used to go to my aunty’s house just so she could give me food to take home.
“I just felt like, What is the point of me existing right now? You have to remember those times. Because that person does not exist anymore.”
According to Tems, when she released “Mr Rebel”, she was living alone and struggling financially, noting that she was putting pressure on herself to assist and provide for her family.
