My mum warned me never to post her on social media again – Juliana Olayode

Nigerian film actress, Juliana Olayode has revealed why her mother warned her never to post her on social media again.

The actress who stars as Toyosi aka Toyo Baby in Funke Akindele’s Jenifa’s Dairy disclosed the reason in a video shared via Instagram while celebrating Mothering Sunday.

Speaking in English and Yoruba, the movie star said her mum kicked against posting her on social media because when she once shared a video of them on Facebook at the cinema, people started noticing her and pointing at her in public.

Juliana Olayode said:

“Happy Sunday y’all and happy mother’s day to all the amazing mums out there, I should be posting my mum today but my mum has warned me not to post her on social media anymore so until she changes her mind I can’t.”

“My mum said: “hello Jully, don’t post me on social media anymore. The last time you put me on Facebook when we went to watch ‘Lion of Judah’ (A Tribe Called Judah), all our neighbours just keep staring at me”.

The 28-year-old once slammed a troll who mocked her mother for not being able to express herself in English after she was asked to give a review of Funke’s film, A Tribe Called Judah.

The troll said Juliana Olayode acts like she comes from a rich family despite her mother’s inability to speak English but Juilaina debunked the statement saying that she came from nothing. In her words:

“My mum can’t speak English but I LOVE her to LIFE!!! And I am VERY PROUD of her. No matter what, love your parents, be proud of them and celebrate them always.”
