Doyin, recently sparked a conversation about public perception and kindness in Nigeria. This follows her supportive gesture towards Ile Baye, the show’s winner, which led to a flurry of negative reactions. Doyin had sent Ile Baye a message of strength and resilience amidst the hate she was receiving. However, when Ile Baye shared this message, some netizens criticized Doyin, accusing her of being overly ingratiating.
In response to the backlash, Doyin turned to Snapchat to express her thoughts. She questioned why acts of kindness often invite skepticism and suspicion of hidden motives. Doyin emphasized her belief in the simplicity of kindness, sharing that she chooses to appreciate and reciprocate kindness without overanalyzing the intentions behind it.
Doyin expressed frustration with the constant scrutiny she faces for her actions. Whether she supports friends, offers encouragement, or simply spends time with them, she finds herself accused of being fake, sycophantic, or seeking fame. In a bold statement, she questioned whether Nigerians are inherently negative or have simply never experienced true kindness.
She went on to defend her character, asserting that despite not being perfect, she considers herself a better person than those trolling her. Doyin remarked on the lack of love in the upbringing of many, suggesting this as a reason for their unfamiliarity with kindness.
Highlighting the paradox in Nigeria, a country known for its religious fervor, she pointed out the prevalence of wickedness amidst widespread prayer. Doyin suggested that many Nigerians would benefit from therapy to address their deep-seated pain and hate, a conversation she believes the country isn’t ready for.
In a light-hearted conclusion to her statement, Doyin humorously proposed running for president of Nigeria, promising free therapy for all.
Reflecting on her eviction from the Big Brother Nigerian House in September, Doyin previously expressed disappointment over not receiving enough public support. She criticized the Nigerian audience for not recognizing “reality TV gold,” revealing her anticipation of eviction but still feeling let down by the lack of votes.
