Kate Henshaw, a Nollywood actress, says there appears to be a form of “sick pleasure derived from seeing people suffer” in Nigeria.


The award-winning actress made this submission on her social media account after a nerve-racking experience at an unidentified international airport in the country.

According to the gifted movie star, passengers were unduly delayed during the luggage screening stage because there was a shortage of scanning devices at the airport.

The actress further said that it is often considered as a deviation from the norm when “things work properly”.


“There seems to be some sick pleasure derived from seeing people suffer in Nigeria. When things are working properly it seems like an anomaly… Long queues of people with their luggage trying to get into the International airport because only 2 scanners are functional,” she wrote.

Kate Henshaw is not the first celebrity to question the current state of government facilities especially the international airports.

Mike Ezuruonye had months ago compared Ghana’s international airport with Nigeria’s. The actor described Ghana’s airport as ‘beautiful and a testimony to African politicians and leaders” adding that Africa has enough resources to develop and maintain “standard amenities”.

Henshaw was recently selected as one of the 50 judges for ‘The World’s Best’, a talent show put together by CBS Global.
