Reacting to the uproar on her Instagram post, Lawani described her critics as “hypocrites”
She went ahead to state categorically, that she will not apologize to anyone for her outfit.
Lawani said, “This message is to tell you all that you no get sense, not an explanation. Honestly, Nigerians have refused to be liberated when it comes to fashion and depicting themes.
“When will you get it into your empty skulls that costumes can carry crucifix and doesn’t mean its a sign of disrespect?
“People dress like sexy nuns all day, for all sorts of events and halloween… yet, you’re all on my page crying and wailing like I killed someone in your family just because I’m Nigerian but if It’s Kim or your RiRi or Beyoncé now, you will be hearing ‘awwn, so hot, my role model.
“Bloody hypocrites but behind closed door you’re all disgusting and doing nasty shit. Even you pastors who come on here to preach, na una f**k your ushers and church members pass…most of you are so way back.”
Lawani noted many Nigerians have been “blindfolded” by religious inclinations and lack of exposure that they can’t recognise works of art.
“Your lack of exposure is really disturbing you lots, you don’t even know what art is when you see it. I learnt fashion internationally, break fashion boundaries and I’m a risk taker.
“You will never be able to understand me cause I will always stay true to what I love and will never do anything to please anyone but myself,”
“If you are expecting that apology you are preaching on my page from me you will be waiting till eternity, take your frustrations to the blogs, but when you come to my page, I will give you your size.
“By now I felt your brains should have told you that I’m not your basic fellow Nigerian and I do not follow the rules of your society.
“I make my own rules, doesn’t mean any of you are holier than I am or better human beings than me.
“All the parasites infesting Nigeria and spoiling the youths currently, you haven’t done anything about that it’s my outfit that’s your headache yet you promote those nasty acts daily.”
