Nollywood actor and politician, Desmond Elliot was on the verge of breaking down in tears on Live TV yesterday following the backlash he is still receiving from Nigerians over his recent statement.
Recall that the actor at the Lagos State House of Rep in his submission, spoke about social media, celebrities and influencers.
His controversial statement received lots of criticisms, as many Nigerian youths blasted him for referring to youths as “children.”
Desmond Elliot in a new interview on Arise TV, however, tried explaining what he meant by his statement. This came after he had earlier apologized
