Kaffy the award winning dancer and entrepreneur has lent her voice to two major issues plaguing Nigerians in recent times.

Some weeks ago, a new dance step named ‘soapy’ was introduced to the media by artist Naira Marley and just yesterday a sitting senator Elisha Abbo was caught on tape assaulting and arresting a nursing mother in a sex toy shop in Abuja just because she told him to calm down.

Kaffy took to her Instagram page to take a stand against the soapy dance saying “I am sorry but I can’t take this😈. In the history of Naija dance I have never seen a more disgusting immmoral dance like the so called soapy. It should never be encouraged. I am really disappointed” and on the issue of the senator, she posted this: “we really need a law that protects us from assault especially police and people in position…this is just sad”.

Senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Elisha Abbo of Adamawa State, is seen on tape slapping around an innocent woman. All because she said “Take it easy.”

Elisha Abbo, is said to be the youngest senator in the country, at 41. He had reportedly gotten into an argument with the shopkeeper, and, perhaps power drunk, had put a call through to police officers, including the Assistant Inspector General of Police.

They called the Assistant Inspector General of Police, over an argument, guys.

It’s funny, because it is in this same country that you will call the police when you need actual help and…

This same policemen, particularly the Police Commissioner in Charge of the Federal Capital Territory, Bala Ciroma, told Premium Times that “he would like to receive the victim at his office urgently to explore a resolution of the case.” Nothing about bringing charges against the senator. A resolution, he says. Not justice.

“This is the face of a woman beater.” “This is the face of a coward.” Those are the words social media users have for Senator Elisha Abbo.

Rapper MI described the senator as a “f***ing woman beater” and must face the full wrath of the law. Banky W said this is why he’s been insisting we pay attention to who we let into the National Assembly. “Shame on him,” he said, “and shame on us for allowing the worst of us to claim the title of Senator.”
