Ronke Oshodi Oke

Actor Ronke Oshodi-Oke made a video this morning talking about how the Nigerian culture and tradition needs to be preserved.

She talked about how some “boys turn to girls and “dudu turn to white” and how the media needs to stop promoting rubbish:

Our children are very fast, you know they think very fast… You will see a 22 year old boy that want to make 10 million naira/ 15 million naira…So by doing all these internet things, all these rubbish… They will think it is right , it’s not right…Before they know what they’re doing is wrong .. a ti pe.. You go just they see boys turn girls, see dudu turn white… On top wetin now! We are all Nigerians, We’ve got culture, we’ve got tradition and our bloggers, our media people, stop promoting rubbish.. Anyways we all have kids and one day they will go on the internet… let’s see how you will be able to tell them what they’re doing is wrong. We all want to make money, but let’s do it in the right way. Our children are our tomorrow…

    sincerely, this cry is so called for….

    Thanks Ronke.

    I really just hope the likes of BellaNaija and LIB will stop promoting RUBBISH on in the name of gathering comments or traffic on their sites.

    Really Nigeria is not psychologically ready for the problems all these rubbish will deal us…so please lets stop peddling this…

    Infact, I blame aunty ADA (cant remeber her surname or her magazine) but people like this are people that should call the youth to order, rather, she gave him airtime …obviously her trade is not paying off for her, she had to go and look out for rave of the moment rubbish to be acknowledged.

    It is well with Nigeria!

      Madam Ronke well spoken! My line of thoughts exactly. Tomorrow we all will be parents or are parents now and won’t definitely want to see our children take such hideous paths in life. All those hypocrites supporting rubbish and saying this and that cus u’re on social media you know urselves. Deep down your conscience tells you it’s wrong but because you wanna join the bandwagon to appreciate and approve nonsense because you see others do so. Be yourself and call a spade, a spade! If you see something wrong, speak out and let the person know it’s wrong. That’s how to show true love. You cant lead someone unto a wrong path cheering and supporting but you avoid taking such path yourself. Thats hypocrisy of the highest level! Don’t condone rubbish that you yourself won’t and can’t do.

    I agree Ronke, the rubbish the media is promoting is unbelievable. The likes of them Bobrisky should not even be mentioned in a serious dicussion.

    Aunty Ronke, PREACH!!!!

    I for one I’m alarmed at the way some very immoral (yes immoral) behaviour is being taken lightly on the blogs. More so on Bella Naija, where foreign educated/diasporans want to import and promote the deplorable (yes deplorable) behavior we see in the West. These enlightened folks talk down on the values of the natives (including their own parents & grandparents), of religious folks, of everyone with a differing view.

    Enlightened folks, some things are plain wrong and counter-tradition/ counter-religion/ counter-decency! While the Liberals have succeeded in silencing conservative views in the West, it will not work in Nigeria! We will not be silenced!

    Auntry Ronke abeg carry on, let them hear! Start with Yoruba movies. Where are the days of Owo blow, Ti oluwa ni le, now its soft pornography. Aunty deal with your people o, stop this madness! Asha wa oni baje indeed!

      God bless you Madam ‘Ronke for this. Thank you for speaking out. People should speak out and stop keeping silent on social media, giving the impression that those involved in all these indecent, immoral, depraved, sinful, perverted acts and lifestyles, and their supporters are the majority, which is FAR from being the situation in Nigeria.

      Christians should speak up and and “‘the righteous should be bold as lion(s)”” to proclaim that what they have against the so-called bobrisky and his kind is the sodomy, homosexuality, what he does with his anus, his homosexual lifestyle as swell as his promotion of unhealthy acts like skin bleaching and promotion of other immoral lifestyles of prostitution/having sexual relationships with people especially/including married ones for money., Those who name the Name of CHRIST should END this weak, apologetic, namby-pamby, ‘politically correct’, yet Scripturally, Divinely and eternally INCORRECT statements that it is his bleaching and telling girls how to have sex with men for money and his advocating how his grandmother “”cooks vegetable””/does juju for his “‘bae”” to remain hooked, etc, etc, anything BUT his homosexuality.

      We owe the world and unbelievers and sinners who refuse to repent and flaunt their sin NO apology. We MUST remember Whose we are; we must “‘not fear those who can only kill the body but fear Him Who has the power to throw both the body and the soul into hell.”” God loves whatever his real name is, He does NOT love bobrisky and the acts and lifestyle that bobrisky engages in and advocates. If he dies as bobrisky, iof he dies in his homosexuality and other immorality, God will have no hesitation whatsoever in sending him straight to hell, which is where he is already headed anyway. We should stop ‘living and letting live’ people into hell. We should keeping silent or saying the devil’s rubbish “”Oh, he’s just being himself””, “”Oh, respect his hustle””, “”who is without sin””, “‘Jesus loved prostitutes and sinners”” (do people not fear God??? to take the Lord’s Name in vain and blaspheme like this? Jesus loved prostitutes, did He love prostitution? Where is the prostitute He ever encouraged to continue in their sin or told that He ‘understood” their situation and that there was no problem? which prostitute or sinner did Jesus ever tell that He ‘respected their hustle’? Was it not rather that He said, and says, “‘Go, and sin no more.””?) Jesus Christ did not seek perfect people to go out and preach His gospel, just those willing to “‘forsake all and follow”” Him and He trained and disciple and empowered them and sent them out to be His witnesses. The devil uses some foolish ones to speak through on social media when the Holy Spirit speaks through others to warn and remind those captured and held in bondage and darkness of the Wo9rd and commandments of a loving but just God and the consequences of disobedience and refusal to repent; the devil speaks through others to attack such Divine spokespersons with idiotic comments such as: “”Judge not, lest you be judged””, “”He who is without sin””, “‘No one is perfect””, “”Hypocrites! Are you sinless? “” “‘Lying and stealing are all sins too, are you saying you have never done those before you attack bobrisky?””etc, etc.

      @Kike, God bless you. Thank you. Be it Yoruba movies or English or Igbo or whatever, be it movies or music videos or shows and concerts (Tiwa Savage prostituting herself and her fellow women, erotic ‘dance’ moves, naked girls on stage and walking around in public to precede her in her entrance), art e.g. photography, paintings, sculpture, art exhibitions, magazines, clubs, ‘VIP’ sections, ‘private’ clubs, strip clubs, homosexual and lesbian clubs, wedding receptions with ‘special’ dance for the groom by the bride ‘grinding” on the groom as he remains seated or foolish the bride and her foolish friends ‘grinding’ and twerking for the seated groom whilst adults from their eighties downwards to actual children watch, ALL the pornography, be it soft, be it hard, be it even medium must end.

      The West and white people are NOT God.

      Everything by and from the West and white people is NOT automatically good or wise/intelligent or lending dignity.

      God will call us to account. It is not only for every word a man speaks that he will give account on the Day of Judgment but also, for every word he did NOT speak when he ought to have. God says He has set us as watchmen and when we are to speak His Word to sinners and we do not and they die in their sin, their blood will be on our hands but that if we speak and they still do not repent and die in their sins, we shall be guiltless of their blood.

      you had me until you blamed the people in Diaspora. That is actually not true. Many of us here and believe me when I say many of us are alarmed at what is going on in Nigeria. the accents, the need to be so westernized. I can’t tell you how much we promote being Nigerian here and how quick we are ready to tell anyone that we are Nigerian. I think the issue is what they are choosing to take from what they see. The media is making folks believe its ok to do what they do. I had to unfollow Bobrisky the other day because i realized I was feeding into the foolishness and it makes me mad when folks say he is living his truth etc, What truth? he can’t even get his story straight and people are watching and learning. Another thing that annoys me is how Nigerians especially Yoruba people don’t feel the need to teach their children their Language. I am Yoruba and I have lived in America for a while I moved here as a kid and nothing about me says I am not Nigerian. I still speak Yoruba fluently, I cook the food and I hang with Nigerians. I went to good schools in Nigeria and here and I go home every year. I educate people I meet here on who we are whenever I get a chance. For some reason, when I’m home however, it seems taboo to do these things. its like you’re from America why are you acting like you live here. What does that even mean? what am i trying to prove and to who? I have gotten my education, I have a good job I have a family that loves me and friends that care so why again should I act like because I live in America I somehow lost my way? People need to start speaking up and don’t allow us lose our way. It is one thing I admire the most about Mexicans. Anywhere, anytime, their Children are Mexican to the core but never my people. SMH we need to do better.
