Busty Nollywood actress, Cossy Orjiakor has come out to defend the reason behind her celebrating her birthday during the #endSars protest and on protest ground for that matter.
During the #EndSars protests in Lagos, the actress was one of the celebrities that came out to support the movement. Beyond that, she also celebrated her birthday on the streets with protesters. The actress went further to emphasize on the fact that she did not wear revealing clothes to the protest ground.
Explaining why she marked her birthday at the protest ground in Lekki, the actress in an interview with ThePunch said, she wanted to make people happy because the mood of the country was saturated with anger.
“I celebrated my birthday on the protest ground at Lekki (Lagos) because the mood of the country was saturated with bitterness and anger. Staying at home and seeing what was going on made me sad too. I just wanted to cheer people up. I know I made lots of guys happy at the protest ground. We had fun at the end of the day.
“Whether one is happy or unhappy, one would still die. We all want a new Nigeria. At the protests, I did not wear clothes that exposed me per se. I just wanted to celebrate my birthday with the protesters. Afterwards, I and some of my friends were hosted by another close friend.”
