Nollywood actor Jim Iyke have come under fire after news of him fathering a child with his 23 year old Romanian girlfriend Dana hit the internet. A blog reader Ruth Agbo ho is particularly pained about how Nigerian celebrities run after white women. Here is what she had to say:
Dear famous guys. Some of you were born with you riches, some acquired, some are self-made. This is to all Nigeria male celebrities/politicians/famous big boys. Here is a lady expressing herself, I woke up this morning with the news of another home base celebrity choosing a white chick over us Haba! Na wetin na?
We help in making you popular by buying your Cd's, watching your movies, watching you play soccer and after so much shouting and screaming @ the top of our voices in support of your career what do we get in return? Nothing! Instead you chose to date and marry the white chick where were they when we were screaming and shouting our strength out in support of your career?
Very soon Europen will ban you guys from dating their girls just like Kenya did. In a notsheel, all am saying is that you should start investing in us and Nigeria @large o or we will stop supporting your career.eg, @mikel Obi@osazeodewinge@JimIyke #EdeyPainmeEhnn #dontTakeItPersonal#DontCriticizingMeMuch. Yours loving. Fan.
