Wizkid has been described as a hypocrite after he made a post about his album documentary, amidst the June 12 protest.
Following Nigerian’s anger at bad governance, a protest was held physically and on all platforms to express their dissatisfaction. Wizkid being a bad timer, made a post about his “Superstar made in Lagos” documentary, coming soon.
The tweet has since generated controversy as many slammed the singer for being insensitive to think about promoting his song at this time of agitation.
The angry mob came at him on social media not only because he made an entertainment post, instead of one to encourage the protest, but also because he had earlier Criticized Reekado Banks’post during the previous year’s #EndSARSprotest
They said his post implied that he really does not care and all celebrities do is posturing. Others called him a double standard for doing the exact same thing he condemned.
“Yui bloody bastard! Nigeria is burning plus #June12protest, and it’s this filth you chose to promote. You called Reekado Banks a fool the other time remember? Keep the same energy short devil”, another lashed out at Wizkid.
They went as far as digging out Wizkid’s post against Reekado from the #EndSARSprotest, they decided to giv him a taste of his own medicine.
Wizkid was very vocal about his support of the #EndSARS campaign and attended a protest held in London. Prior to this, he had called out Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari asking him to focus on issues affecting the country. The “Joro” crooner likened the Nigerian president to the president of the United States, Donald Trump. According to Wizkid, both presidents are clueless and the only difference between them is that one is addicted to Twitter. This led to a clash between the singer and one of the aides of the president, Lauretta Onochie.
Ironically, Wizkid was scheduled to release his long-anticipated album “Made In Lagos” but in light of the #EndSARSprotest, had it postponed.
