The Nigerian entertainment industry is still grappling with the shock and sorrow following the loss of one of its emerging stars, Ilerioluwa Aloba, popularly known as Mohbad.
While many are mourning his untimely demise, there has been a rise in Nigerians trolling celebrities who have opted not to post about the late artist. These celebrities have faced significant criticism.
Veteran actress Kate Henshaw took to Instagram to address this issue of online trolling. In a video message, she urged Nigerians to refrain from criticizing and trolling celebrities who have chosen not to publicly mourn Mohbad’s passing or have continued promoting their own work without immediate tribute.
Henshaw emphasized the importance of recognizing that people cope with grief in different ways. She urged compassion and understanding instead of resorting to harsh judgments, highlighting the need to consider that everyone processes grief differently.
