She shouldn't have gone to that extent - Media expert

A Nigerian social media expert, Tobi Crackit, had this to say about Uche Ogbodo sharing her passport page because of trolls:

"I think getting trolled comes with the territory, and celebrities need to find a way to navigate it. That being said Ogbodo shouldn’t have gone to that extent. It won’t convince any troll, even if she showed her birth certificate or interviewed the midwife who birthed her. There are some things you just let go."
