Nigerian Nurses Attack Olamide Over ‘Wonma’ Video

Nigerian rapper and singer, Olamide landed in serious trouble over the latest video to his hit song, ‘Wonma’.

The YBNL rapper was dragged on social media over accusations that he portrayed nurses as sexual objects in the video.

The music video which was released some days ago featured vixens dressed in nurse costumes engrossed in various explicit activities and moves while on duty.

The video has sparked outrage among Nigerians especially women who are perpetually bashing him on social media as some finger Olamide as one of the causes of infamous practice of s3xualizing nurses.

A twitter user known asLakesyde wrote ;

8hours shift, 12hours over- night shift on ward, on duty at least 5days in a week, Caring and looking after the welfare of people that don’t know u or gives a damn about you, and still receiving a shitty pay at the end of the month, nd this is deserved? #nursesarenotsexualobjects

Olamide later pulled down the video to the song he shared on his Instagram page but it was a little too late.

Reacting to this, another twitter user wrote ;

I like how the Nurses raged over Olamide’s video sexualizing nurses. In 24hours,the video has been taken down. That’s seriousness and unity. If a profession is poorly portrayed by an entertainer, the sensible thing to do is to speak in one voice

Nursing World Nigeria, An online outfit that connects Nigerian nurses, also released a statement on the issue ;

Thanks to everyone who took time to report and request that the video by @Olamide posted on Instagram be taken down. While we acknowledge the fact that @Olamide has brought the sounds and beats of Nigeria and Africa to the world at large, the fact still remains that
@Olamide recent music video misrepresents and totally disrespects the Nursing profession and healthcare providers. With a video WONMA depicting nurses as sextoys and sex objects to over 3.4M and 6.9M followers on @Twitter, @AppleMusic and @instagram.
It was heartbreaking to say the least. To those who also made the calls and desired to remain unnamed we also appreciate you.
To everyone who used the hashtag: #NursesAreNotSexualObjects we also say thank you. The video has now been removed Nurses Are No Sexual Objects
