In her statement, Bukunmi Oluwasina highlighted the normalization of fake lives lived by some celebrities on social media. She drew attention to the fact that society often fails to appreciate those who remain true to themselves and engage in honest work to support their families. According to the actress, Sylvester’s choice to sell Okrika clothes is far more commendable than resorting to begging or engaging in illegal activities.

The Nollywood star further compared Sylvester’s actions to those of other role models who borrow designer items solely for social media posts, only to return them or give them back to the stores they were purchased from. In doing so, Bukunmi Oluwasina aimed to expose the hypocrisy and artificiality that can often be found in the lives of some celebrities. She commended Sylvester for living authentically and urged others to refrain from recording individuals without their consent or sharing such videos.
