Many African countries have a rich cultural and traditional heritage and a number of people hold it very dear.
On the other hand, being an actor or an actress is the act of mirroring the things that happen in the society in movies. For this reason, a number of thespians are required to act different characters and even dress up to look the part.
Nigerian actress, Chioma Akpotha, recently became a subject of online trolling after she shared a video of herself on a movie set on her Instagram page.
In the video, Chioma was dressed in a way that is similar to how the queen of Benin dresses. She tied a red wrapper across her chest and cinched it at the waist with a white cloth. She also wore a traditional headgear and beads around her neck and wrists.
In the video, Chioma was seen twerking with two other ladies on the movie set. Even though the video was a fun one that aroused a lot of amusement, not everybody was impressed with it.
See the clip below:
An online user identified as Joystar363 called out the film star and claimed she was disrespecting the Benin queen.
The troll wrote: “Not cool. Not why dressed like a Benin Queen. Very disrespectful.”
Chioma then responded in a sarcastic manner. She wrote: “@joystar636 Osheee! Queen Adesuwa May your reign be long in ya dormot, ise!”
The internet user also shot back by saying: “@chiomakpotha respect the culture and tradition. Reeducate yourself, you don't wear beads and an attire portraying a benin queen and twerk. Awuaaaa. Aiye ivbie we emwin oya.”.
