In the words of Amara, a young student ,she said ” I was raised up to know that women don’t do some certain things on public but the first time I came to see this T Blak via Instagram,I got wondering where we got it all wrong in this country “. She queries .
While other Nigerian sees him as a business man on the making and taking after the likes of Playboy in USA and other porn stars that have made it big. They opined that he should be encouraged, as the movie and music industry in Nigeria is doing well, we should also export our porn industry as a brand and branch of Nigeria entertainment. What we must accept is that he is an entrepreneur and he is “employing” people.
