The Nigerian/Veteran Actress has via her Instagram page on Monday, shared her opinions on bullies and why they should desist from it.
According to her, the world is cruel and unfair, so being a bully doesn’t even help issues. She also made it known that some people do not have the capacity to handle situations like this.
“The world is already cruel and unfair. Stop making life difficult by being a bully. Everyone cannot stand against bully or fight back. There are many that have gone down due to bullying. Please let’s stand for something for the goods of others, don’t be source of despair, be the reason some people have hope, don’t be the reason they commit suicide. Good morning #TOYINTITANS,” she wrote.
