Shortly after Iwobi deleted all his Instagram posts, Lege Miamii took to social media to advise him.

In a video shared on his Instagram page, the Nollywood actor told Iwobi that getting backlash from football fans was normal and that he shouldn’t take the comments from critics to heart.

According to Lege, Iwobi was the next target for Nigerians to blame because Ahmed Musa did not play, and Troost Ekong scored a penalty goal for the country.

Not stopping there, the actor instructed Iwobi’s girlfriend to cook for him to console him. Lege then told Iwobi to act like a man and return his pictures on Instagram to get more followers and enjoy engagement from his fans.
