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.’

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.

“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”
