It is a common practice during elections that celebrities have affiliations, loyalty and sometimes even preferred candidates that they either openly or secretly endorse. Nollywood had its own fair share of the trend as there were actors and actresses who went on to endorse those they felt were the right candidates during the last elections.
Now with the current new government of Muhammadu Buhari in place, there is a widespread belief that there has been a painful slow start to things. However, Nollywood diva Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde has spoken in defence of the president and his administration.
She tweeted recently:
Until I have good reason to doubt the person and mission of MB, I choose to support and Encourage him.I hope he’s still fearless. Eid Mubarak.
It will be recalled that Omotola once made slammed those trekking to show solidarity to some politicians, referring to them as “silly youths trekking their futures away.”
