Actor Kazeem Abimbola, nicknamed Jigan Babaoja, has criticized his female coworkers for leading lives that adhere to a double standard.
The hobbling Yoruba actor alleged on his social media page that all his female coworkers do is take bikini images and upload them while earning more money.
His post reads: “The only thing they do is post Bikini and half nud3s and they are making more money than bankers. This house no balance.”
It is unclear which of his coworkers the actor is criticizing, but he has a history of speaking out on hot-button matters.
It may be recalled that Jigan and a fan got into an online argument a few months ago over a sketch the latter uploaded on his Instagram profile.
The fan made fun of Jigan during their exchange because of the actor’s leg’s abnormality. Jigan claimed he wasn’t upset, despite the fact that many people believed it was a slight against the actor.
He said, “There are some people who always want to bring somebody down when they see you rising. The guy in question did not tell the true story; he edited our chats before he posted it online. I uploaded a skit some days ago and shortly after, there were different comments that attacked me, saying it was rubbish.
“From experience, I have learnt that if I let those comments go unanswered, some people, who might want to do business with me, would be discouraged by the negativity. The same guy continued attacking me with direct messages. Immediately, I told him that he would not prosper because he was trying to spoil the good work I was doing to improve my brand. If 80 per cent of the world appreciate me, then I don’t care about the remaining 20 per cent who don’t like me. It is normal, as not everybody can like you. The more people talk about me, the more followers I get online. Since this particular issue, I have gotten over 1000 new followers on Instagram.”
Jigan added, “I have been handling abuses about my disability since I was a 10-year-old. Even recently, I have been making jokes of my disability; it doesn’t get to me because I’m used to it. Somebody sent me a message last week that he wanted to take me out of the country for a surgery so that I would be able to walk properly. However, I told the person that I was not interested. I like the way I am right now because this disability has paved the way for me. Had it been I am a ‘complete’ person, I may not be where I am today.”
