Joke Silva, became a trending topic after she publicly showed her support for Tinubu
The movie star’s daughter-in-law, Blessing Douglas, also got people talking after she appeared to throw shade
Veteran Nollywood actress, Joke Silva, caused a massive buzz on social media after she showed support for APC’s presidential candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
Not longer after her support became known, the movie star’s daughter-in-law, Blessing Douglas, also became a trending topic.
The young lady appeared to throw shade at her mother-in-law on social media over her political stance.
Taking to her Instagram story, Blessing shared a series of posts, some of them cryptic and others showing clearly where her support lied.
In one post, she started off by covering herself and her child with God’s protection before she went ahead to declare her support for Peter Obi in a different post.
She wrote: “Obedience is better than sack of rice”.
Not stopping there, she advised people to get their voters’ cards and vote their conscience while preaching that people’s choices should be respected and praying for Nigeria not to happen to them.
Many accused her of being rude while others said people’s choices should be respected.
nwunye_bigman1: “Respect people’s choices. I don’t care but the former daughter in law is rude.”
miemide: “Everyone has a right to vote whosoever they want,the fact that she choose to campaign for Tinubu doesn’t make her a bad person…You can’t impose your decision or candidate on people at all…..”
duchessofdivas: “No Joke Silva slander will be tolerated pls, she’s a legend and she can vote whoever she wants❤️”
naija_rich_kids: “Very silly kids. So it’s Joke Silva and all the other accomplished women there that need sack of rice.”
zayxon_tech: “But let’s be honest, we shouldn’t insult anybody because they are voting for someone we don’t like…thats not how a democratic society operates.”
