Mirabel Obi, who’s reportedly on the verge of being expelled by the Management of the University of Nigeria Nsukka after a viral video of her twerking surfaced on social media has broken silence.
Naija News reports that the Dean of student affairs had vowed to persecute Mirabel for destroying womanhood after displaying an explicit twerk move during a dancing competition held at the school.
In a lengthy post on Instagram, the first-year female student of Medical Laboratory Sciences (MLS) narrated why she indulged in the dancing competition that led her to showcase such explicit twerk dance.
She also said she’s yet to be expelled from the institution.
According to Mirabel, she participated in a competition with other females like herself, noting that her academics had nothing to do with her dancing skills.
She also added that she has faced so much humiliation and can’t come out anymore after the video went viral.
Questioning if the dance was worth the humiliation, Mirabel also disclosed that she has lost privacy since the invasion with her hostel room invaded, and some of her properties damaged.
Read her post below;
“It is no news that a female UNN student was expelled from UNN after supposedly stripping to win 10k in a dance competition.
“Well, I am that student. Normally I would let this slide because I am not clout chasing and I owe no one an explanation, but, am tired of seeing different fake news on the story and at this moment, I feel it is pertinent to address this issue publicly. This is the real story behind it all.
“My name is Mirabel, a medical student of UNN. On the 28th, October 2021, there was an awareness for a concert in the school. Awareness is what people do almost everytime and what comes with it is usually a dance competition and that day, we were competing for 30k. I happened to be one of the contenders. I have watched a lot of girls compete in the past and what they wore was nothing better than mine. It was equivalent to what I wore and sometimes worse, because after all, we feel we are dancing in front of our fellow females, but then I feel the amount I made was the reason for the video going viral.
“The Dean of Student Affairs got hold of the video and I really do not know what they told him about me that made him rage in so much anger and also to make the decision to expel me.
Here are the points am trying to make
“.1. I am not and was never expelled because we all know that you cannot expel a student on the ground of twerking.
“2. We were all dancing in front of the girls hostel, and there was never a place that twerking is violating the school rules and regulations.
“3. Twerking has nothing to with my academics because you can’t even make it to be a medical student in UNN without crossing 300 and above in ur JAMB. I am still very serious and I know how to balance my social/academic life.
“4. It was never a competition for 10k. It was 30k.
“5. I wasn’t expelled, I repeat I was only harrassed without being heard from (the authorities in question badged into my hostel and ransacked my properties).
“6. Ever since then, I have faced so much humiliation, I don’t even know how to come out anymore, I keep wondering if it was really worth it. A lot of my properties have been damaged and some are nowhere to be found like how do you invade someone’s privacy??”
