Georgina Onuoha, the Nollywood actress, has waded into the controversies trailing Tiwa Savage‘s leaked sex tape.

Tiwa Savage had a few weeks ago alleged that some individuals were in possession of a video of her sex romp.

The singer had also vowed that she would not succumb to the threats just for doing “something natural.”

A few days after Tiwa had raised the alarm, a video showing an intimate moment between the ‘Koroba’ crooner and her new lover had surfaced online and sent the social media into a frenzy.

Some users had criticised the singer while others wondered how such a “sensitive” video found its way online at first.

Amid the backlash, several celebrities including Mercy Aigbe and Harrysong had defended the mother of one with solidarity posts.

But in her reaction on Friday, Onuoha said entertainers did Tiwa a disservice by celebrating what she termed her “mistake”.

“I pray Tiwa pulls through this. She is immensely talented and gifted,” Onuoha wrote in an Instagram post.

“She has the world stage on her laps. She did not commit a crime, she is the victim but damn my colleagues did her a disservice with their “A Queen I stand” rhetoric.

“We all should learn to weigh issues critically before our support becomes an indictment of the person we are trying to support. She took the step of going public about her being blackmailed. Which was proactive and smart of her.

“My ill-informed colleagues did her a disservice. The narrative should have been, ‘Say No to Blackmailers who breached her privacy. Instead, their ignorance came off as celebratory of her mistakes.

“They did Tiwa bad. I’m still praying for her to get us a grammy soon. She will rise from this. According to PR expert Lauretta, sometimes not all publicity is good publicity.”

Onuoha also suggested that the best way forward would be for the songstress to apologise to her fans and move on.

“Kim Kardashian went on an apology tour on every TV and significant talk show in America and issued public apologies to save her brand 15 years ago. Tiwa is no longer a Nigerian brand; she is global,” the actress added.

“I hope she pulls through this, learns her lessons, apologizes for this mistake. If I were on her PR team, I would suggest a public apology, most of you will say it’s not needed, as her bla bla bla did not leak the tape.

“Still, if you understand PR, you will appreciate that an apology is necessary to her family-oriented fans.

“She apologies for letting such happen to even get to the media whilst also playing the victim because she is still the victim and then move on.

“Do you know that with all the popularity Kim K has that some brands will never use her as their ambassador?

“You might say she doesn’t need it. Trust me, her team wishes those brands will contact her. There is a reason why we should all be careful in this life. Yes, we all make mistakes but for every action, there are some consequences.

“My favorite line to my children. I am paying for some mistakes I made in the past (not sex tapes lol) but I learned from them, apologised where necessary and faced the consequences, and moved on.”
