Tinubu: Toyin Abraham Under Attack Over Movie Role In ‘Gangs Of Lagos’
Nollywood actress, Toyin Abraham has come under heavy criticism after playing a role that is contrary to her political affiliations in the ‘Gangs of Lagos.’
Top Nollywood stars stormed the ‘Gang of Lagos’ movie premiere which held on Thursday night.
Directed and produced by Jade Osiberu, ‘Gangs of Lagos’ gives a thrilling ride through the bustling streets and neighborhoods of Isale Eko, Lagos.
The gritty, hard-hitting action film tells the story of a group of childhood friends trying to navigate the challenges of growing up and making their way into the world.
Amongst the cast, is Toyin Abraham, who played the role of a gubernatorial candidate canvassing for votes by urging the electorates to vote out the ruling government that had held the state hostage for years.
Reacting to the movie, a lot of Nigerians on social media called out the actress for portraying a different character in real life.
Recall, Toyin had thrown her weight behind the presidential candidate of the All Progressive Congress,(APC) Bola Tinubu in the just concluded general elections, ignoring dissenting voices of her choice of candidate who many, particularly youths deem not fit to lead the country.
