The controversy surrounding the “Arolake character” that actress Bimbo Ademoye portrayed in Kunle Afolayan’s most recent film, Anikulapo, has been addressed.

According to NGV, Bimbo Ademoye has gained popularity on social media since the 30th of September 2022, when the movie Anikulapo came out.

While some praised Bimbo Ademoye’s acting as Arolake as “difficult” and “fully translated,” others said that Arolake deserved more and wasn’t smart enough to use the magical powder she provided to Saro after he “betrayed” her instead of letting herself become a victim.

Bimbo responded to the many schools of thought by asking her followers to offer their opinions on which character was really the victim on Instagram a few hours ago.

She wrote: “Guys quick one, who is the victim? Saro or Arolake? Because I’m seeing some tweets saying fear women. Fear women, fear women how? So over to you guys, if you feel Arolake is the bad guy please comment ‘fear women’. If you think it’s Saro please comment ‘men are scum.’”

As expected, several celebrities and fans stormed the comment section of the post to share their thoughts. While some supported Arolake, others threw their weight behind Saro.

Men are scum, Yoruba demon oshi,” actor Mofe Duncan added.

Comedian Mr Macaroni wrote: “Arolake wise, Saro overwise.”

Actress Idia Asien wrote: “Fear men but you shouldn’t have poured the powder away just keep it for yourself. Don’t worry we are looking for Saro, they didn’t beat him well in the film.”

A follower named Fridayy_usual wrote: “Saro is the bad egg here, he’s ungrateful. And before anyone comes to say what about arolake, think she explained to saro that she doesn’t find happiness with the king and to think the king married her at an early age added to it.
