But in a chat with a gossip site, he explained that he was too old to do such as the post was a harmless one which he has since deleted when his attention was drawn to who was in it.
“I don’t know why people would think I would post a negative picture against someone. An artiste from Tanzania sent the picture to me. I saw it and I did not know who Cynthia Morgan is, I have just heard some of her tracks. When I saw the picture, it was funny to me, so I posted it about two nights ago. It was a contact of mine on BBM that called my attention to it that the person in the picture was Cynthia Morgan. I immediately put it down but before I went there, a blogger had picked it up and was making a big deal out of it.
“I am too old for all that. I was just creating fun; I did not even know who the person was. I did not know she is a Nigerian. I posted about 15 pictures that day that I thought were funny including that one. I know the name Cynthia Morgan and I have listened to her songs but I don’t know her facially. If she reaches out to me, this is the exact same thing I will tell her. I don’t know her,” he said.
The ace actor said that this was not the first time he would witness the venom of some online users as they have once pounced on Wizkid just because he commented on his family photo.
“There was a time I released a picture of my family and I in Arsenal jersey and Wizkid commented on the photo that he was jealous of my family. People just picked it up and because he said he was jealous, they decided to unleash terror on the boy. They asked why he was envious and they began to abuse him telling him to go and get married,” he said.
