Eniola Badmus, the Nollywood actress, has come under criticism for endorsing Bola Tinubu, ex-governor of Lagos state, for the 2023 presidency.


The film star, in the comment section of blogger Tunde Ednut’s Instagram post on Sunday, declared her support for Tinubu.

Ednut had asked his fans to choose their preferred candidate for the presidency ahead of the 2023 election.

In response, Badmus commented, “Tinubu all the way.”


Her statement, however, came with a wave of backlash from Instagram users who hurled allegations at her.

“It can’t affect her when sugar daddies sponsor them. Nigerian bad economy can’t affect her,” Flora wrote in Pidgin.

Another user identified as Divine wrote in Pidgin English: “How much did you collect to betray the youth? So all your protest and show at end sars was a scam? How cheap can you be?”


Bright wrote: “You’re officially becoming one of the problems we are having in Nigeria.”

Emmanuel wrote: “Don’t forget about the Lekki Massacre of oct 20,2020. This your man was behind it”.

According to another user called Fela, “When you have the money, you can travel to anywhere you like if anything happens. But don’t forget you have family here in Nigeria.

“You glutton celebrities are the only problem we have. You want to sell us out again.”


A user whose handle is named Amnicep added: “Supporting a man who killed many souls in Lekki massacre.”
