She said, “The backlash is nothing to me, I just wanted to drive home a point. My own stand point is that of most reasonable women."

"The funny thing is that things like that increase my fan base. If there was no conflict, no one would go to my page to find out what is going on. It makes my account more active and the more the merrier for me."

"Don’t forget that I am a brand, when things like that happen, it is more money for me. It is an advantage to me. The reason I actually answered was because I wanted to create a crisis."

"When Foluke talks, everyone would want to know what is happening and that is what makes the world more interesting.”
