“Nigerian Bloggers are illiterate” – Kemi Olunloyo
Self acclaimed journalist, Kemi Olunloyo lashed Nigerian online writers, tagged bloggers illiterate.
Olunloyo, while trying to to clear the air on her controversial post about Iyabo Ojo’s daughter, ridiculed bloggers.
Kemi Olunloyo stated that she never insulted the actress’ daughter.
According to her, it was bloggers that twisted her words to manipulate the readers’ attention and attract traffic to their sites.
She said, “Iyabo Ojo did not need to challenge me to release the evidence I have on her because it is already in my book.
If I release the letter right now, my unreleased book will not sell as it should. That is my point.
My lawyers have given me the go-ahead to release the evidence I have on her but I cannot (do that) because my book may not sell.
I was not the one that called Iyabo Ojo’s daughter a ‘runs girl’ (sex worker) as she claimed. It was bloggers that spun the headlines to what would suit them.
“That is why I say that all our Nigerian bloggers are illiterate.
I did not call the girl a ‘runs girl’.
I addressed everything in one of my posts. It was a writer that sent me a letter calling her a ‘runs girl’ in training.
