Nollywood veteran actress, Rita Dominic has replied a follower who questioned why she didn’t celebrate pilot Tolulope when she was alive.
The actress had earlier sent a condolence to the family of Tolulope Arotile who died as a result of head injuries sustained from a road traffic accident.
“Gone to soon. Tolulope Arotile was our first female combat helicopter pilot. My condolences to her family and friends. May her soul Rest in Peace. Amen”
A follower took to the comment section of her post to say that people like Arotile are never celebrated when they are alive.
“We never celebrate them, when they are alive. The minute God calls them, they become news for every blog, gossip page, IG post etc. May her gentle soul rest in peace. But I think it’s about time, we discuss those Nigerians that have done a good job laying a foundation for themselves and celebrate them. It will motivate the younger generation.
Instead what the younger generation see more is celebrities flying high on Instagram and men turned women motivating ladies to sleep with older men for money. It is important before you show your success story, tell them the pain and sweat story. And the rejection and bad influence stories and how You survived it. All this has to stop….. Let’s fight the bad influence on the younger generation. What a beautiful young lady. May her gentle soul rest in perfect peace.”
Reacting to the comment, Rita Dominic wrote;
“This is not the right place or time. This is the right place to talk specifically about the person for whom this page was created and that person is the Late T. Arotile”
