The scintillating Ghanaian actress and mother of one, Yvonne Nelson had taken to her Twitter handle to express her opinion on the recent widespread social media sex-for-grades saga bewitching Universities in West Africa, with lecturers after the academically vulnerable students.

The BBC news had earlier released a video clip of one senior lecturer in the University of Lagos, Dr. Boniface Igbeneghu , showing sexually suggestive moves and conversations with a supposedly news reporter who had claimed to be a 17 year old seeking admission into the University. This video went viral and attracted various reactions from concerned Nigerians. The beautiful Yvonne had also vented his anger with a thread that sparked social media fire immediately.

The actress had used these lines: “Sex for grades! Sex for jobs! Sex for everything in our part of the world! Your brains don’t matter here. It’s the covered parts they want, oh wait, these parts aren’t covered anymore…it’s free on social media. Will it ever change?”

As though her supposed fans had been waiting to get back on her, her Tweet was greeted with all sorts of lash backs. 

These are some of the comments her post stirred up:

Yvonne Nelson. Youuu that ties towels in your movies and take them off is trying to slut shame?? Like you literally do things our society deems as “immoral”

You’re here performing for the same men that wouldn’t even bat an eye in calling you an “ashawo” in seconds.

Surely Yvonne Nelson isn’t trying to shame women for not fully covering their bodies. Surely she can’t be. My eyes must be paining me.”

“Yvonne Nelson talking about nudity on social media and its relation to sexual harassment in universities will never and will not crack me up… Like You?! I personally hate to see it.”

“I’m wondering how Yvonne Nelson thought this made sense because if we are staying on topic, When Kemi went to see Boniface, she was fully clothed but he still harassed her. When is it gonna sink in that what you wear isn’t a determinant for assault & rape. This is victim blaming”
