Nollywood actress, Sonia Ogiri, who hasntaken a swipe at queen of Afro pop singer, Tiwa Savage, for having an unprotected sex in the viral sex tape.
In an interview with Saturday Beats, Ogiri, whose constant criticism of the the 'Koloba' crooner was believed to have been spurred out of jealousy, maintained her stance.
She said, “Yes, I have been vocal about Tiwa’s sex tape, it’s so unfortunate. For me, the news did not sit well, and that was why I spoke out. I must not have millions of followers, and must not be the most popular person in Nigeria for me to make my point. It is my point, my observation, and my opinion.
"I am part of the public; to begin with, forget about the whole social media presence or celebrity world. We’re all part of the general public. She brought it out, it came to my hearing, and I contributed my quota. It’s my right, and no one can take it from me. I don’t care how other people see it, I don’t care how people want to garnish it, I don’t care about the people standing with or against her.
"I am not for once standing against her, I just aired my opinion about the sex tape, and it should not even have happened. She should be more aware of these things. People make mistakes and we learn from people’s mistakes, she has seen other celebrities’ sex tapes get leaked, so she should be smarter at this age. To me, age should come with some sense of belonging, responsibility, and wisdom. So, I expected her to be wiser than that sex tape.
“Let’s analyse this, you’re having sex with someone and the person held his phone, that should tell you that something was going on, he should be holding onto something or holding onto you or touching something, but he held his phone and you were busy moaning and enjoying the moment. He was busy videoing you up to your face, showing everything that represents her as a woman. To even add salt to injury, she did what she did without a condom, what message is she passing to society?
"Apart from that, the sex tape of people that I have seen is always well organised, you see them in a proper arrangement on a well-made bed, lost in the mood with rose flowers or bottles of wine in the room. For a woman of that magnitude, status, level, age, and exposure, you can imagine how bitter this whole thing is; it’s so disgusting and disrespectful to her.”
The mother of one also noted that even though she is in love with someone, she would never assent to the idea of having a sex tape.
She said, “I would never have a sex tape, except it was done without my knowledge, but I am very smart to check around. I am not even in that situation because I date extremely responsible people. I don’t do ‘runs’, I do relationships. My relationships are extremely responsible and my partners’ social lives are paramount to them.
"They would never want to put such a thing out there, and I also would never want to put such things out there too; we respect each other’s privacy and they’re not social media intoxicated. They’re not small boys that would be triggered to do such thing for whatever reason, because I am very careful, I find myself around very more careful people too.”
