People are calling out the musician for being insensitive with the victim saying she had reached out to the singer to take down the video but he called her bluff.


A certain user wrote:


“Do you remember the viral video of a lady that was flogged by some rogue @PoliceNG

men in Iwo, Osun state? @oritsefemi
used the same video in his new music video justifying the actions of the policemen who have since been dismissed.

Some of your celebrities are very insensitive.

Kindly note that I reached out to @oritsefemi
through a friend yesterday after the lady in the viral video, @fabhally
called my attention to the situation and dude was bragging unintelligently.

We will initiate legal actions against him.”



Recall several weeks ago, some police officers in Osun state were recently dismissed by the force after a video of the brutalizing Tola Azeez went viral on social media.


Social media users are all over the thread, expressing their disdain at Oritsefemi’s act as well as some even calling that the victim sues him.
