Everyone with dreadlocks is not a ‘Yahoo boy’- Bimbo Ademoye
Talented actress, Bimbo Ademoye is dissatisfied with the way operatives of the Nigerian Police harass young Nigerians.
The versatile role interpreter who was nominated for Best Actress in a Comedy/TV series at the Africa Magic Viewers Choice Awards, noted that the Nigerian Police are fond of harassing people just because they look a certain way.
In an encounter with Ndani TV, the ‘Backup-Wife’ actress said:“Nigerian Police are fond of harassing people just because they look a certain kind of way. Everyone with dreadlocks is not a ‘Yahoo boy’. I have an allergy for people with pot belly, most of you have pot bellies. Your stomach usually covers the logo of your belt, but you don’t see me acting scared, reversing my car or running away.
“If you are going to pull someone over, do the right thing. Stop checking people’s phones you don’t have any business there. It is not right. I was in a car one day with someone, then a certain officer suddenly stopped us because the guy had dreadlocks . What is your business?”
At the 2018 City People Movie Awards, she was nominated for Revelation of the Year, Best New Actress and Best Upcoming Actress. Her role in Backup Wife also earned her a nomination for Best Lead Role at 2018 Nigeria Entertainment Awards.
