Ireti Doyle, the Nollywood actress, has revealed how Adesua Etomi saved Jemiyo, her daughter, from bullies.
The film star took to her Instagram page on Thursday to appreciate Etomi, who is also an actress, for coming to the rescue of Jemiyo.
Doyle recounted how her daughter was bullied “aggressively” in school for contesting a position in the students’ council, shortly after she resumed.
She said the bullying “died down significantly” when Etomi stepped into the matter.
Doyle also said Etomi used her “true star power” to pass a silent yet clear message to Jemiyo’s colleagues.
“Within months of arriving she vied for and won a position on the students Council. Apparently that’s not allowed. You cannot just arrive here and begin to ‘shine’ without ‘permission’,” she wrote.
“Oh, the bullying was aggressive! And most of the time, she would beg me not to step in, determined to make her way.
“Anyways, Mrs. Wellington heard about the goings on and said ‘Auntie, I’m going to go pick Jem from school one day’. I said OK. On the said day, she asked me to sit in the car. It took longer than usual.
“@adesuaetomi didn’t just “pick” her from school. She took her time to stroll round the school compound with her arm around Jemiyo, waving at the students who had become dumbstruck.”
“The message was clear: ‘This is my Beloved, thou shall not touch’. Suffice to say the bullying died down significantly from that day – true star power.”
