Lizzy Jay Replies Man Blaming Female Celebrities For Lady’s Death During Butt Enlargement Surgery [Video]
Nigerian comedian, Adeyela Omobola, otherwise known as Lizzy Jay or Iya Ibadan, has insisted that celebrities are not to be blamed for influencing the youths.
The comedian stated this while reacting to a video where a man criticized the lifestyle of female celebrities and blamed them for the death of a 20-year-old lady who died a few days ago after a failed butt enlargement surgery.
The man also criticized the unethical advice given by many celebrities, claiming that they are setting a bad example for the younger generation, despite their role as mentors and influencers in society.
He said: “I blame female celebrities because all they do is promote their yansh online and then they post house, cars and all the younger girls who look up to them think that from the yansh that is house they buy these things.”
Sharing the video on her Instagram page, Lazzy Jay said celebrities should not be blamed for a decision taken by an individual because everyone has options and minds of their own to choose what is best for them.
Using top actresses like Funke Akindele, Kate Henshaw, and Toyin Abraham as points of reference, the comedian highlighted the fact that these female celebrities have been breaking records at the Box office without influencing the youngsters to increase their body shape.
She added that she believes that people who allow peers to pressure them are people who are already nursing
some unhappiness and dissatisfaction about their own lives.
Lizzy Jay wrote: “They see Funke Akindele a veteran Actress that has been there for over 2 decades, Funke Akindele that made over 630Million naira on Battle on Buka Street, they didn’t emulate her, They see Toyin Abraham (Mama no get big Yansh but she commands millions in the box office). They see Kate Henshaw that goes to the Gym everyday, they didn’t emulate her rather they chose to emulate The celebrities that are doing Yansh and flaunting wealths. What does that tell you? That people have options, everyone has options, but we choose the one that suits us.
“I do understand that we have a lot of negative things on social media, but at the same time there are also thousands of positive things to Emulate…We can’t blame others for the decisions people make about their own lives. Yoruba will say that “Eni ti won ba ko ni ika to shey, Ika wa ninu e tele ni, Meaning if they teach you wickedness and you do it, it’s because you already have wickedness in you”.
“At the end of the day, it all boils down to the INDIVIDUAL and CONTENTMENT, if you are contented with what you have, other people’s way of life will never intimidate you..Celebrity or Not.
“Even if you have role models, role models are not God, just like you they are humans living their lives without Manual, it’s left for you to filter things and pick what is best for you. We as individuals need to work on ourselves and HAVE MINDS OF OUR OWN.
“I understand there’s something called “PEER PRESSURE” but you see ehn, I believe people who allow peer to pressure them are people who are already nursing some unhappiness and dissatisfaction about their own lives.”
“PS: I do expect a lot of insults and yab on this post, but I no mind, bring it on.
“PS: Please note that I am not trying to belittle people that are working on their bodies o, I am not trying to make it look like those who do Yansh don’t have honest source of Income or they are not successful or they don’t have a life worthy of Emulation, I’m just trying to say, everything is about choice, but don’t blame other people for the personal choices you make for yourself. Have a mind of your own and do what’s best for you.”
