Kemi Olunloyo, Self Acclaimed ‘Investigative’ Journalist or Budding Online Troll (Opinion)

Pearl Emmanuel

Kemi Omololu Olunloyo is known first as the outspoken, arguably rebellious daughter of one time governor of Oyo State, Victor Omololu Olunloyo.

Kemi is the second of ten children. She has been quite vocal about her father's philandering ways with women and was almost disowned severally for her 'unstable' behaviour.

If you are an astute follower of the journalist, you'll know she prides herself as an internationally renowned and highly recognised journalist.

She spent 14 years in Nigeria before starting her journey in the United States of America where she spent 10 years and then moved to Canada.

Kemi spent 5 years in Canada before she was deported after being termed a flight risk because her refugee visa was not renewed.

She was remanded into custody at a female maximum prison, for seven days before she was deported to Nigeria.

Since her ingress into Nigeria, she has decorated herself an investigative journalist and has made it her business to always be in the know. Although she has become so caught up in the web for news that she sometimes fabricates news to remain relevant.

There are several times, she has broken news, only for the public to investigate and find it was a hoax. One of such is her latest news that Davido welcomed a baby boy with his girlfriend a few days ago.

This was untrue as sources confirm that Chef Chi is still in fact pregnant.

Kemi Olunloyo, Self Acclaimed ‘Investigative’ Journalist or Budding Online Troll (Opinion)

Kemi has been known to blindly troll celebrities like Davido, Iyabo Ojo, among a long list.

One of the things which set Kemi apart, is her nonchalance for public opinion and her ability to ask for money from fans and celebrities alike and fight those who refuse to give into her demands.

Kemi might have been good at her job as a journalist but she is now widely perceived as an online nuisance, hungry for social media relevance and would go to any length to ensure the public remembers her always.

The once upon a time journalist is fast becoming a verified online troll who cannot be discarded probably because of her family status or the works she has done in the past.
