Award-winning Nigerian musician, Wizkid has responded to an aide to the presidency, Lauretta Onochie, who blasted him for disrespecting the president, Mohammadu Buhari.
The ‘Starboy’ crooner had criticized the president over the weekend over his lackadaisical attitude towards the plights of his citizens.
Onochie an aide to the President on media, was on her Twitter page on Tuesday, October 6, 2020, where she blasted Wizkid for calling the president as an old man.
“its not disrespectful to call anyone old. Its the way and manner Ayo Balogun addressed the President that leaves a sour taste in the mouth. He exhibited crass ignorance, insensitivity, and childishness. But hey, he’s a #DumbkidNotWhizKid When he grows up, he might learn respect,” she tweeted.
In his response, Wizkid was suprised at her reply and asked if the president wasn’t an old man. He accused Onochie for trying to deviate from the pains young Nigerians are facing in the hands of men attached to the Special Anti Robbery Squad (SARS).
“lol, a 77-year-old man is not young ma… 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 better governance in my country!!”
