Feb 14, 2014 – Underage Daughter’s Photos: Omotola Jalade Threatens Legal Action Against Nigerian Bloggers
Nollywood beauty queen Omotola is very angry with some bloggers who invaded her teenage daughter’s privacy earlier this week by posting her Facebook pictures on their blogs to celebrate her birthday.
Over 90% of Nigerian copy-bloggers did the same thing on Tuesday.
As we speak, the invasion of Meraiah’s privacy has upset Omotola and her hubby since she is only 14.
The mother of 4 said she found the action of the bloggers inappropriate, and she was horrified by the suggestive captions used by most of the bloggers. Omotola also said that she will not hesitate to take legal action against anyone who does the same thing again.
Read her full statement below:
“Thank you to everyone who wished Meraiah a happy birthday. However, going to a 14 year old’s “private” online accts to post her pictures for public viewing is totally Inappropriate . Her father and I are horrified as parents and guardian that a minor’s picture can be paraded online as hot” ,”sexy” etc… We know the bloggers probably meant no harm but in a world full of pedophiles and sickos every adult with morales should know where to draw the line. This was started by a lady called Kemi filani , she has since apologized and taken down content but her reckless blog post lives on. I WILL NOT hesitate henceforth to use everything within my power to bring ANYONE to justice who does this with any of my under aged kids after “this” first time episode ! Any child under 18 should be protected by us all and if their parents/guardian haven’t given you the okay to publish information especially “private” of their child, doing so, is against the law. I hope you all understand, thanks. Omotola.”
Pictured above is Meraiah who turned 14 on February 7th, the same day her mother turned 36.
Omotola is using her star advantage to protect her daughter and I think she has every right to do so.
