Actress Toyin Abraham speaks on the reason why Nigerians are condemning her movie, ‘Ijakumo’

Controversial Nigerian Nollywood actress and director, Toyin Abraham, has accused political opposition for the negative reviews her movie, ‘Ijakumo’, is receiving across social media platforms after it premiered on Netflix.

Wonder9ja reports that Ijakumo depicts the story of a spiritualist, Asabi, who seeks retaliation against a former lover turned pastor.

Toyin, who played the role of Asabi imposes the help of a stripper to entice the pastor (Kunle Remi) to his downfall.

Since the movie premiered on Netflix last week, some movie lovers on social media have praised the remarkable performances of the actors/actresses while others claimed the movie was below standard due to its weak storyline.

She further knocked critics saying that ‘Ijakumo’ was accepted in cinemas across Nigeria and the United States of America.

She wrote: “You all went to create WhatsApp group because of Ijakumo, the born-again stripper, please continue.
“Maybe today I will kuku break the table. You all will tell the world why choosing my own candidate is a crime and yours isn’t. Loni yi mo mura yin wa (today I’m prepared for you)

“You all think you have monopoly to talk sh*t; I’m here today for those people in that WhatsApp group. Ijakumo the born-again stripper was accepted in USA and Odeon cinemas and was showing same time Nigerian cinemas were showing it, I might keep mute for other things, but when it comes to my work, I will speak out”

The actress later apologized for her outburst and asked critics to share their opinions about the movie with love.
