Veteran Nollywood actress Ìrètí Doyle has sung Praises of fellow actress Adesua Etomi-Wellington, for helping save her daughter from school bullies.
In a lengthy Instagram post on Thursday, the 55-year-old actress revealed that her daughter, Jemiyo Doyle, was a subject of bullies in school.
Ìrètí Doyle stated that Jemiyo got transferred to a new school as a bright lady, ready to take up a new challenge in a new environment.
“Within months of arriving she vied for and won a position on the Students Council. Apparently, that’s not allowed. “You cannot just arrive here and begin to “shine” without “permission”. Oh, the bullying was aggressive! And most of the time, she would beg me not to step in, determined to make her own way,” she wrote.
Ìrètí Doyle revealed that when Mrs Wellington heard about the bullying she has been experiencing, she decided to step in.
“Auntie, I’m going to go pick Jem up from school one day”… I said OK,” she added.
Ìrètí Doyle continued, “On the said day, she asked me to sit in the car. It took longer than usual… @adesuaetomi didn’t just “pick” her from school, she took her time to stroll around the school compound with her arm around Jemiyo, waving at the students who had become dumbstruck. The message was clear: “This is my Beloved, thou shall not touch”
After the encounter with Adesua, Ìrètí stated that the bullying died down significantly from that day, calling it a “true star power.”
