OAP Gbemi Reveals Why She Couldn't Wish Her Mum Happy Birthday
Gbemi Olateru Olagbegi, Nigerian broadcaster and presenter known for presenting programmes on Cool FM and The Beat 99.9 FM has revealed how cyberbullies prevented her from wishing her mum a happy birthday on social media.
She explained that, she was scared, they might rain abuses on her mother, and thus she couldn't summon the courage to celebrate her mum's birthday.
“All these people who say that people in the public eye must learn to deal with everything thrown at them with grace. Easier said than done. You are in the public eyes, so deal with it' sometimes you will snap! Because you've been dealing with it every day. Human.
You open your social media and strangers are slinging insults at you every day. One day you will snap.
My mom's birthday was on Monday, I didn't put up her picture. I saw someone insult a colleague's mom. Her crime? She put her mons picture up.
Deal with it, abi? Every time, deal with it. All fun and games until someone snaps.
We live in a world where you can't put your mother's picture on your own Instagram without some lowlife insulting her, abeg! Public figure abi?”, she bared her mind.
