“This is the face of courage. @busoladakolo
Just yesterday, I watched the @bbc interview of the beauty queen who broke her silence on her alleged rape by former Gambian president. I did empathize but it seemed distant. These are serious issues.
Today, I stand with my friend and sister #BusolaDakolo I applaud her courage and the message it sends. Love you always baby. #RealMVP
While no one is without sin, we MUST start holding each other accountable especially as #Christians to bring healing to our society.
Yes! I called it war!!! If you comment like a goat 🐐 here, be rest assured that I have suya and asun pepper.
Other actresses have also shown their solidarity for Busola Dakolo.
According to Rita Dominic:
Thank you for having the courage to speak up. Many girls and women have gone through this in silence. Those who spoke up were derided and abused. Never again! We support you Busola! We love you and we will stand by you. Hold your head high sista! Hold your head high! We are with you! I hope this encourages us all to be just as brave as you.
