The hot exchange of words between Nigerian pop star, Ayo Balogun, popularly known as Wizkid and the Presidency over police brutality in the country is not showing any sign of ending soon.
Wizkid had on the wake of the public outcry against SARS on Sunday quoted President Buhari’s tweet wishing US President Donald Trump quick recovery from Coronavirus, calling him “old man” and asked him to face his own country where youths are being killed by the police.
Reacting to Wizkid’s outburst earlier on Tuesday through her verified Twitter handle, Buhari’s Aide on Social Media, Lauretta Onochie strongly criticised Wizkid, saying that the music star exhibited “crass ignorance, insensitivity and childishness.
“When he grows up, he might learn respect.”
However, Wizkid responded and reiterated that as a 77-year-old man, he could not have called Buhari young.
The multiple award-winning artiste did not stop there. Addressing Onochie, he wrote, “You are a woman and a mother and kids are getting killed by police/sars and this is all you have to say? shame on you!!! shame on you!! I am a father and age has nothing to do with demanding for a better governance in my country!!”
