Nollywood actor Deyemi Okanlawon has come under fire for saying the Eti-Osa House of Representatives (HOR) elect, Thaddeus Attah did not do much work to warrant him winning the election.

According to the actor he didn't know how Attah was able to overthrow an incumbent candidate and also win over a public figure as he had never heard of him or even seen his works.

Deyemi stated that he would want to have an Instagram live session with the HOR elect for him to address the concerns and respond to the questions on the minds of some Lagosians.

Many Nigerians and social media users found Deyemi's statement irritating and oppressing.

They said Deyemi and his other nollywood actors are commenting and oppressing Attah because their colleague Banky W contested and lost.

According to many, Attah won over Banky W because he had worked equally as Banky and the people of Eti-Osa were tired of APC that was why they voted for Attah.

rockkybaby: "Deyemi this is wrong!! And oppression in a subtle way. I like Banky, I voted for him also asked my friends to but it’s unfortunate he didn’t win. This guy on the other hand is well connected to people even down to grass-root, well involved in community service way before this election… I also made my enquiries about him which is why I can tell you this.. are you sure you researched about him at all??? Popularity kno means say the person dey genuine and can work oooo"

mrcantuc: "Oga go rest, is he the only person that you need to question over elections stuff? You have been quiet over the presidential election na here you wan show yourself abeg go rest"

gbengex2: "Oga what about all the people with agenda.. Wetin dem don do? Elliot and co"

alex_unusual: "Mr Fashina, In my opinion this is unnecessary"

bobbymaris: "Na PO grace him use win, another proof that PO won Lagos with much more numbers."

theomotoso: "Lol, how can you talk about cyber bullying when you’re practically bullying this man. You and the whole of Nollywood. This is unfair and unnecessary! People have said they have seen him working and you can go to his social media page and see for yourself! This is very disappointing sha! But not surprising!"

xtononi: "Maybe the people of Eti Osa re tired of APC and PDP and decided to give another party a chance.. Otilo"
