Nigerian rapper and singer, Olamide, has been slammed by nurses in Nigeria, over his recently released visuals of his hit song, ‘Wonma’.
He was accused of portraying nurses as sexual objects in the video.
The YBNL rapper was dragged on social media over accusations that he portrayed nurses as sexual objects in the music video.
Wonma official video was released some days ago, and it featured vixens dressed in nurse costumes engrossed in various explicit activities and moves while on duty. This was the theme all through the video sighted by LailasNews.
Olamide later pulled down the video to the song he shared on his Instagram page but according to many social media commentators, it was a little too late.
Nursing World Nigeria, An online outfit that connects Nigerian nurses, released a statement on the issue saying;
“Thanks to everyone who took time to report and request that the video by @Olamide posted on Instagram be taken down.
While we acknowledge the fact that @Olamide has brought the sounds and beats of Nigeria and Africa to the world at large, the fact still remains that @Olamide recent music video misrepresents and totally disrespects the Nursing profession and healthcare providers.
With a video ‘WONMA’ depicting nurses as sextoys and sex objects to over 3.4M and 6.9M followers on @Twitter, @AppleMusic and @instagram. It was heartbreaking to say the least. To those who also made the calls and desired to remain unnamed we also appreciate you.
To everyone who used the hashtag: #NursesAreNotSexualObjects we also say thank you. The video has now been removed Nurses Are No Sexual Objects”
