President Muhammadu Buhari’s aide For New Media Lauretta Onochie fires back at Afrobeat singer Wizkid after his outburst on Sunday, calling an old man who doesn’t mind the business that concerns him.
Lauretta describes Wizkid’s outburst as “crass ignorance, insensitivity and childishness”.
KOKO TV recalls reporting that Wizkid via Twitter joined the online protest against the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) told Buhari to focus on ending indiscriminate killings by SARS and not wish the President of America Donald Trump quick recovery.
“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 !!” he wrote.
Responding on Tuesday, Mrs Onochie said the 30-year-old would learn some manners when he grows older.
“It’s not disrespectful to call anyone old. It’s 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 said
