After the controversial bill which was passed by the senate on child marriage, many individuals in the entertainment business continue to lend their voice against the senate’s decision. Many have been very vocal online while some continue to send text messages and Blackberry messages to all who care to read. Actress Stella Damasus actually went a step further by recording a video in which she points an accusing finger at the members of the Nigerian senate for endorsing what she termed ‘slavery’.

However, she must have let her emotions take over her as she spoke in the recording. She started mixing up issues. According to her, the senators are pushing a Muslim agenda to law in Nigeria, and saying that they are “forcing Sharia law on the whole of Nigeria.” While many hail her courage, she had received more knocks for the video than praises.
Reading comments on the video, Stella was criticized for not knowing what she is saying and mixing issues up. According to one comment, Stella could not differentiate between being from the North and being a Muslim. “Because Northern senators shamefully endorsed the bill does not mean that it is a Muslim Agenda,” the comment read.
