Nollywood actress, Hadiza Abubakar has called out some followers of late BBNaija star, Rico Swavey.
Rico died on Thursday after a fatal car crash on Tuesday which left him in a coma.
Many Nigerians took to social media to mourn the passing of the 30-year-old.
In a new twist, Abubakar condemned netizens who clicked the follow button on late Rico Instagram page after his death was announced.
Abubakar was taken aback by the rapid increase in the deceased’s followership on Instagram.
She wondered why people were suddenly interested in the timeline of a dead person.
She questioned why they never showed interest in him when he was alive but only chose to follow him after he passed on.
The movie star finally concluded ‘some Nigerians’ were ‘sick’, possessing a penchant for ‘eye service’. She wrote:
Some Nigerians are SICK WALLAHI!! Y’all have a thing for following people the moment news of their demise breaks out! Why not follow them when alive?
“Rico was on 243k! After his demise now is 247k!
“What is it with Nigerians and ojuaye bayiii??? Shey oku dey update?”
As of the time of this report, the deceased followers have increased to over 250,000.
