Is Kemi Olunloyo really a Doctor (Dr)?
Investigative journalist, David Hundeyin in a 2021 report alleged she does not possess any degree that would have made her qualify for the title of a Doctor.
“It turns out unsurprisingly, that Kemi does not in fact possess any medical qualification other than a BSc in Pharmacy from the Philadelphia College of Pharmacy and Science. She is lying about being a medical doctor, never mind with “30 years of experience,” and she is also lying about having a PharmD. She in fact graduated with a Bachelors degree and got a job filling orders in a pharmacy.”
In a 2015 post, Kemi accused her dad of killing family members in a series of occult rituals and making her “siblings to bathe in blood to get his own power”.
Alleged defamation against Pastor David Ibiyeomie

Kemi and sex toys
In an interview with The Punch in 2020, Kemi revealed her love for sex toys. She said; “I was celibate for 10 years. It is very common for Nigerian men to think that all a woman wants is good sex but we don’t need that to get what we want out of life. Men only say such things when their egos have been deflated. I really don’t like sex because I was circumcised (female genital mutilation). That made me distant from my mother. I dated someone in 2017 and the relationship ended that same year. However, I use sex toys and I like them. I promote their use and I want other women to do the same.”
Dr Kemi Olunloyo was nominated for the Social Media Awards Africa’s Social Media Influencer of the Year in 2014.
