‘SARS Are Still Harassing People On The Streets’ – Actress Kemi Lala Akindoju
Nigerian actress, Kemi Lala Akindoju, is frustrated over the fact that the Special Anti Robbery Squad (SARS) officers have not stopped harassing people on the streets.
The movie star took to her Twitter page to lament about the fact that it seems Nigerians are helpless regarding SARS and police brutality.
In her words:
“Meanwhile we still have SARS officers harassing people on the streets of Nigeria. What are we REALLY going to do???? #EndSARS”
Reacting to the video of Desmond Elliot proposing the regulation of social media, she writes:
“This ‘respect’ mentality has really done a number on us in Nigeria. Hon Desmond is more concerned about ‘children’ cursing on social media than he is about better governance and true leadership. Again he has shown us his priorities”

‘It Is Both A Blessing And A Curse To Be Very Good Looking’ – Korede Bello
Nigerian singer, Korede Bello, has stated that it is both a blessing and a curse to be very good looking. The Afro pop star shared this via his official Twitter page.
According to the Mavin Records artist, it can be a curse because people tend to get distracted by the person’s good looks. Also, the good looking person faces the risk of being seen as incapable or incompetent because of their aesthetics.
In his words:
“Unpopular opinion. I think it can be a blessing and a curse to be very good looking. Having good looks is def an added advantage but unfortunately we tend to get distracted and prioritize aesthetics over ability. The external will fade, the internal will grow”
