TikToker sentenced to 3 years in prison for bullying actress

• She was charged with cyber stalking which she pleaded guilty.


A Nigerian Tiktoker Okoye Blessing Nwakaego has been sentenced to three years in prison after he called veteran Nigerian actress Eniola Badmus a pimp. She was charged with Cyberstalking.

A pimp is a person who controls prostitutes and arranges clients for them, taking a percentage of their earnings in return.

The Tiktoker had pleaded guilty. Blessing was however given an option to pay ₦‎150,000 which is slighlty above Ksh 28,000.

Explaining why she defamed the actress, the Tiktoker said "So, one of my friends said if I should come out and talk about Miss Eniola Badmus that he was going to send me N200,000 because I told him about my rent. So that was what prompted the video in the first place. So I’m so sorry. I just did it because of the money. I was so desperate to pay my house rent.”

Meanwhile, in Kenya, Tiktoker Azziad Nasenya has opened a case against fellow Tiktoker Brian Chira. He was charged with Cyber harassment at the Kibera Law Courts on Monday. Chira pleaded not guilty.

He is now out on Ksh 50K bail and the next hearing will be on September 12th.
