Veteran Nollywood Actress, Joke Silva, has responded to critics who expressed their displeasure over her tribute to Britain’s longest-reigning monarch Queen Elizabeth II.
Late Queen Elizabeth II who ruled for 70 years, died yesterday at 96. The late Queen lived through wars, colonial times and pandemics before passing away due to a short illness.
Buckingham Palace said she began having “episodic mobility problems.”
In a tribute to the monarch posted on Instagram on Thursday night, Joke Silva said;
“Her Majesty dedicated her life to service, to her country and commonwealth….with grace. And with grace she has started her next journey.”

Some Netizens, however, frowned at her tribute.
An Instagram user identified as Lexx wrote: “Mama these people loot us woto woto. You na our mummy and so no wham.”
“You don’t have to like her because I do,”
Another user identified as Ienubienne who appears to be the actress’ niece added: “Oh no this is not the move Auntie.”
“My niece don’t like the Queen,” the 60-year-old responded.
“Not at all; millions of people have been killed and captured under her reign, she never apologised for slavery and she died filthy rich on the backs and hard work of oppressed people from dozens of countries the crown colonized. May she ret in the same peace that her (in) action caused her colonial subjects,” Joke’s niece replied back.
