Nigerian hip hop recording artist, Olamide popularly known as Olamide Baddo or BaddoSneh has recently released the music video of a single ‘Wonma.’
The YBNL boss, however, was forced to take down the video under 24 hours after sharing it via his Instagram account to his 6 million fan base.
Nigerians lashed at the artiste as the video is considered to gratify sex and also portrayed nurses as ‘sexual objects.’
Watch the video below:
See reactions of some fans below:
“8hours shift, 12hours over- night shift on ward, on duty at least 5days in a week, Caring and looking after the welfare of people that don’t know u or gives a damn about you, and still receiving a shitty pay at the end of the month, nd this is deserved? #nursesarenotsexualobjects.”
Another twitter user wrote, “I like how the Nurses raged over Olamide’s video sexualizing nurses. In 24hours, the video has been taken down. That’s seriousness and unity. If a profession is poorly portrayed by an entertainer, the sensible thing to do is to speak in one voice.”
Nursing world Nigeria, a site that connects Nigerian nurses, also released a statement on the issue;
“Thanks to everyone who took time to report and request that the video by @Olamide posted on Instagram be taken down.
“While we acknowledge the fact that @Olamide has brought the sounds and beats of Nigeria and Africa to the world at large, the fact still remains that @Olamide recent music video misrepresents and totally disrespects the Nursing profession and healthcare providers.
“With a video WONMA depicting nurses as sextoys and sex objects to over 3.4M and 6.9M followers on @Twitter, @AppleMusic and @instagram.
“It was heartbreaking to say the least. To those who also made the calls and desired to remain unnamed we also appreciate you.
To everyone who used the hashtag: #NursesAreNotSexualObjects we also say thank you. The video has now been removed. Nurses Are No Sexual Objects”
