Veteran Nollywood actress, Ireti Doyle has showered praises on her colleague, Adesua Etomi-Wellington, recalling how she saved her daughter, Jemiyo, from bullying.
In a lengthy Instagram post, Ireti Doyle noted that her daughter became an object of bullying in her school after she won a position in the Student Council.
Ireti Doyle said Adesua Etomi after hearing about the aggressive bullying decided to step into the issue, and the bullying died down.
The veteran actress noted that Adesua Etomi took her daughter on a stroll around the school compound while she was waving at the students who became dumbstruck.
Ireti Doyle added that the simple act was a clear message to the bullies that they should not touch her daughter again.
She wrote: ‘It took a whole summer of convincing, but I finally caved in – do not underestimate @jemiyodoyle once she’s set her mind on a thing”
“Anyways, she arrives, bright and bubbly eager to take on new territory and blossom, which she did. 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”
“Anyways Mrs. Wellington heard about the goings on and said “Auntie, I’m going to go pick Jem from school one day”… I said OK, On said day, she asked me to sit in the car. It took longer than usual”
“@adesuaetomi didn’t just “pick” her from schl…she took her time to stroll round the schl 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”. Suffice to say the bullying died down significantly from that day – true star power”
