Wumi Toriola, a prominent actress in Nollywood, has shared her concerns about the negative impact of godfatherism in the entertainment industry.
Reflecting on the recent tragedy of Mohbad’s death, she highlighted the potential dangers that can arise when individuals have influential godfathers or godmothers. According to Wumi, these influential figures can obstruct potential helpers, sabotage opportunities, foster animosity, and create numerous other problems for their proteges.
Wumi further explained that this is precisely why she and many others have decided to become their own godfathers and godmothers, aiming to rely on their own efforts and merits rather than being subject to the control and limitations imposed by others.
One wrong, Dem go off might and carry wire. Block intending helpers, cancel opportunities, Breeed hate, and a lot more.
The reason some of us have chosen to be our own godfather, godmother, and goddaughter.
God, please raise destiny helpers with a mind of God”.
