Billionaire music mogul, Paul Okoye is offering a N5 million cash reward to anyone who can provide helpful information leading to the identification of the Twitter troll who wished afrobeat music guru, Davido dead.
A Twitter user, @Winco_3 while referring to Burna Boy’s performance in the Netherlands, emphasized that Davido’s burial which would be free would not draw as many people as the crowd in Burna Boy’s concert.
“Even Davido burial that would be free can’t pack this crowd. Know your mate,” he wrote.
The singer who had earlier stated that the day was difficult for him to celebrate as it is the first Father’s day since he lost his son, Ifeanyi, queried why the unknown person would wish him death.
“So u want me to die? Reason being? What have I personally done to you to have you wish death on me. Anyways I’m not going anywhere! I WILL LIVE LIFE TO THE FULLEST.”
Reacting to this, Actress Iyabo Ojo’s lover, Paulo Okoye disclosed that he would offer a N5 million cash reward to anyone who discloses the Twitter user’s location so he could explain the meaning of his post.
“@davido is good to find this guy!!! What is this??? I’m putting 5M!! To find this guy location to just explain this tweet”, Paulo wrote.
Responding to the post, the troll tackled Paulo for seeking public validation adding that he can easily be found and nothing would happen to him.
The Troll wrote:
“Paulo is funny. U day put 5m for my head lmao. Bald headed toothless man, using Igbo sense to deceive people for public validation.
If you really want to find me, you can easily do that without making noise on social media and one when you do that I promise you that nothing will happen.”
The billionaire’s decision to take action against the troll and offer a substantial sum of money has sparked public interest and ignited discussions on the importance of combating online abuse.
