Nollywood actress Sonia Ogiri has stated that the recent tape of singer Tiwa Savage where she could be seen having sex without condom, send a wrong message to the public.
In an interview with The Punch, Ogiri said she has a duty to speak out on the issue as she is entitled to her opinion
“Yes, I have been vocal about Tiwa’s sex tape, it’s so unfortunate. For me, the news did not sit well, and that was why I spoke out. I must not have millions of followers, and must not be the most popular person in Nigeria for me to make my point. It is my point, my observation, and my opinion. I am part of the public; to begin with, forget about the whole social media presence or celebrity world.
We’re all part of the general public. She brought it out, it came to my hearing, and I contributed my quota. It’s my right, and no one can take it from me. I don’t care how other people see it, I don’t care how people want to garnish it, I don’t care about the people standing with or against her. I am not for once standing against her, I just aired my opinion about the sex tape, and it should not even have happened. She should be more aware of these things.
People make mistakes and we learn from people’s mistakes, she has seen other celebrities’ sex tapes get leaked, so she should be smarter at this age. To me, age should come with some sense of belonging, responsibility, and wisdom. So, I expected her to be wiser than that sex tape.
“Let’s analyse this, you’re having sex with someone and the person held his phone, that should tell you that something was going on, he should be holding onto something or holding onto you or touching something, but he held his phone and you were busy moaning and enjoying the moment. He was busy videoing you up to your face, showing everything that represents her as a woman.
To even add salt to injury, she did what she did without a condom, what message is she passing to society? Apart from that, the sex tape of people that I have seen is always well organised, you see them in a proper arrangement on a well-made bed, lost in the mood with rose flowers or bottles of wine in the room. For a woman of that magnitude, status, level, age, and exposure, you can imagine how bitter this whole thing is; it’s so disgusting and disrespectful to her.”
