How Nigerian Celebrities Reacted To Buhari’s Address




After President Muhammadu Buhari’s nationwide #EndSARS protests address on Thursday night, many Nigerian celebrities have expressed their disappointment.

Singer and songwriter, Ayodeji Balogun, aka Wizkid, sighed, saying, “God help Nigeria.”

While David Adeleke, aka Davido, simply remarked, ‘Wahala’, Damini Ogulu, aka Burnaboy, quipped, ‘Huh?’

Media personality, Toke Makinwa said, “He spent time praising his administration and sharing his plans to alleviate Poverty, yet today alone a warehouse with palliatives was discovered, Is this even a country?

“I’m done, guys pls look out for yourselves, as you can see no one cares about you, imagine the souls we lost, their families tuning in to watch the president address the Nation and he mentions nothing about the order to shoot unarmed Nigerians #EndSARS.”

Popular artiste, Adekunle Gold, in a series of tweets, wondered why the President did not mention the Lekki shootings and killings in Zamfara.

He, however, urged the youths to be united in their pursuit to end police brutality and make the government bring about the much-needed reform in the Nigeria Police Force.

“Wait what?!! My heart cannot take this! My God! I’m dazed!

“We all have one common challenge and it’s our bad leaders not our fellow brothers and sisters,” Gold wrote.

OAP Toolz, also said, “Did he actually not mention the #LekkitollgateMassacre? There weren’t subtitles so I’m not sure #EndSARS.”

According to Mr Eazi, “Last Last God is King! Him no go Leave us alone Cos at this Point!!”

Don Jazzy also reacted, he said, “I’m actually speechless.”
