Could it be that the world is truly coming to an end? The nude picture staring you in the face, is that of a 300-level student of the Nigerian Institute of Journalism, NIJ, Ogba, Lagos, Ms Enitan Adeshola Okesanya.
She allegedly went nude to break into the silver screen as a way of living out her dreams of becoming a successful actress in future. The nude pictures and stories were circulated online as at Thursday morning.
The aspiring actress was said to have vowed to break into the industry with a bang. “As long as my strength can carry me,” she was quoted as saying.
But the new twist to the whole story is the fact that the 21-year-old Eniola, is claiming the nude pictures were not hers. In her explanation, since the nude pictures were uploaded online, she has received not less than 500 phone calls, asking questions about the stories.
Enitan claimed that she granted an interview to an evening newspaper, which was published yesterday
(Wednesday). But unfortunately, someone mischievously changed the pictures and posted them on facebook.
Narrating how her nude pictures were uploaded online, Enitan said: “It was from there that all the websites copied the story thinking the pictures were mine. I am ready to bide my time, I come from a responsible home and won’t do anything that will bring the name of my family to disrepute, too much is at stake for me than for me to mess around.”
Meanwhile, according to reports, the nude pictures belong to another up-and-coming actress known as Tope Sholaja who alleged that she was blackmailed by someone who had unauthorised access to her blackberry and who asked her to pay N100,000 to have the pictures deleted.
Mixed reactions have continued to trail the release of the pictures on the internet since Thursday morning.
Fathia Balogun and many other actresses have condemned the act, declaring angrily on twitter that any girl that goes nude in order to become a star is a fool and won’t make it in the industry.
