Furthermore, he pointed out that while everyone is entitled to their opinions, celebrities should not be unfairly criticised or treated differently for engaging in activities that are considered normal for non-celebrities.

Balogun stressed the importance of recognising that celebrities are human beings who experience the same emotions and challenges.

Also, he argued that they should be allowed to express themselves.

He wrote: “You use police to arrest your neighbours for the most minor reasons; e reach celebrity turn, you say it’s bullying. Stop the emotional blackmail.

Celebrities are humans, just like you. You are free to say what you like, right?


Let celebrities be free to take whatever actions they want to protect their mental space. Freedom should not be selective. God bless”.
