Why I hate social media – Opeyemi Aiyeola


Actress Opeyemi Aiyeola has spoken of her aversion for social media, a decision, which seems to be at variance with that of many of her colleagues.

The thespian took time out from acting between 2007 and 2017. However, on her return, she has found a marked change in the terrain, according to her in an interview she granted Punch.com saying “So many people even get undeserved awards these days. Outside the movie set, the industry has become a world of make-believe. For example, everybody expects me to do photo shoots for birthdays and Valentine’s Day and I always wonder what could be the reason behind that. And me, I have responsibilities and children to cater for, so I can’t be doing all that.”

Opeyemi also told the paper of her hatred for social media: “When I go on social media, I just laugh these days. There was a time I wanted to give up because it was too much for me, I couldn’t cope. A lot of people, who know me, know I am not fashionable.”
