Nigerian actress, Ireti Doyle, has shared how fellow actress, Adesua Etomi-Wellington, saved her (Doyle’s) daughter, Jemiyo, from bullies.
She shared this in a post on her instagram page on Thursday. Doyle revealed that her daughter, who just turned 18, was once an object of bullying in her school. However, when Etomi intervened, things changed.
She wrote, ” Sooo sisi kekere (can I still refer to her like that? (?) had just transfered to a new school
having spent her entire academic career up
to that point in one place. It took a whole summer of convincing, but I finally caved in – do not underestimate @jemiyodoyle once she’s set her mind on a thing. “
She continued, “Anyways, she arrives, bright and bubbly eager to take on new territory and blossom,
which she did. Within months of arriving she vied for and won a position on the students Council. Apparently that’s not allowed. You cannot just arrive here and begin to ‘shine’ without ‘permission’. Oh the bullying was aggressive! And most of the time, she would beg me not to step in, determined to make her own way.
Doyle further stated, “Anyways, Mrs. Wellington heard about the goings on and said ‘Auntie, I’m going to go pick Jem from school one day’. I said OK. On the said day, she asked me to sit in the car. It took longer than usual. @adesuaetomi didn’t just “pick” her from school. She took her time to stroll round the school compound with her arm around Jemiyo, waving at the students who had become dumbstruck. The message was clear: ‘This is my Beloved, thou shall not touch’. Suffice to say the bullying died down significantly from that day – true star power.”
