“Shame On You For Not Demanding Good Governance For My Country”-Wizkid Blasts Buhari’s Aide, Lauretta Onochie
Nigerian pop star, Ayodeji Balogun, popularly known as Wizkid, on Sunday joined the #EndSARS campaign by calling on President Muhammadu Buhari to protect Nigerians.
Wizkid, in a series of tweets, called on Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari to focus on issues affecting the country and youths instead of matters in America. In his tweet, he referred to President Buhari as ‘old man’.
See his tweet below:
Donald trump is not your business!
Old man! Police/Sarz still killing
Nigerian youth on a daily! Do something!
Nothing concern u for America!
Face your country !! https://t.co/thxmoYb7VE

Well, it seemed this did not go down well with the Presidency as the Special Assistant to President Buhari on Social Media, Lauretta Onochie has replied to Wizkid comments, berating him for disrespecting President Buhari, saying he’s a ‘Dumb Kid and not Wizkid’ as he’s popularly called.
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

Wizkid could have none of that as he also swiftly replied Onochie by calling her out for not supporting the agitations of the youth and good governance in the country.
See their hot exchange on twitter:
