According to some of her fans, Kemi Olunloyo finally made up her mind following her recent social media fight with top Nollywood actor Jide Kosoko, actress and music star Dayo Amusa and her alleged cousin, Tokunbo Aboderin.
On Thursday, Kemi Olunloyo took to her website HNN Africa to officially announce to her fans that she is quitting journalism to focus on her charity foundation and she added that no one forced her to quit journalism.
According to her post she said: “Today July 7th 2016, I am really SORRY to tell you my fans that I will no longer practice Journalism in Nigeria. It seems like many celebrities and their fans are upset when I write a story about them. I live for the truth and nothing more.
News is news and not prying into other people’s business. Without news you are uninformed. I opened this page January 25th 2013 and wanna thank everyone who has followed me on social media.
I will now concentrate on my Kemi’s Kids Foundation. I like helping disadvantaged kids in Nigeria. Pls LIKE the page Facebook.com/Kemiskids. If you follow me on Twitter @KemiOlunloyo is my private page @HNNAfrica my main handle will be there. Facebook.com/KemiOlunloyo is my fan club started by some loyal fans. Once again I apologize to all Nigerian celebrities and their fans who felt offended by my stories. They are true investigative stories which are the bitter truth! I am now moving on. I will also be canceling my social media tour in Nigeria. Facebook has changed my page description to Public Figure instead of Journalist as I notified them. There are lots of bloggers and newspapers that can report those stories. Try Sahara Reporters, Breaking Times, Cable NG and Premium Times, Pulse Nigeria, Naij, Daily Post. Don’t forget your local newspapers. Nobody has forced me off Journalism on social media. It was my choice. I will never change for anybody. I will be keeping to myself and continue writing for the various foreign media on their platforms. I write online as admin for 4 American TV stations and 2 newspapers. Thank You, please Share and I love you all.”
Wishing her all the best!
