Today’s Noisemakers: Joachim MacEbong, Isima Odeh, Osi Suave and others [The Wizkid-Fela debate edition]

Every day on the Nigerian internet, there are people who keep our eyes glued to our phone screens as we read their rants, opinions, perspectives on political and social matters, etc. Sometimes, they are just downright ridiculous. We make it our job to take down the names of these noisemakers.

Here’s our list from today:

1 Dolapo

It was all about Wizkid on Nigerian Twitter today because last night he sold out the Royal Albert Hall in London and didn’t fail to deliver performance wise. Fans were so in thrall of Starboy’s performance, they got heady and proclaimed him a legend far beyond Fela’s star.

Cue Dolapo:

3. Abami Eda

This section of TwitterNG was just mad someone had the audacity to compare the two, birds NOT of the same feather and all. They started out pleading and ended with some severe scolding- which Twitter delightfully retweeted 1000 times.

4. Doc Olu

The good Doctor wasted no time throwing shade, since that was Dolapo’s intent anyway. In order to level the playing field, Olu dragged Wande Coal into the debate. Interestingly, Wizkid gave the floor to Wande Coal during his show yesterday. As far as Olu is concerned, the two are mates.

5. Ekere

Now we get into the meat of the matter. Ekere lists the artists Wizkid has to surpass first before comparisons with Fela can begin.

6. David

David lists other accomplishments of Fela that Wizkid falls short of:

7. Osi Suave summarises:

And in case this slipped by yo the first time, read it slowly and take it all in.

8. Molara Wood drops bombshells

Chijoke follows it up

9. Isima says to dismiss it:

Joachim MacEbong says it shows how young Nigerians onTwitterNG are.

10. Ferdinand leaves us with the proper definition of a legend:
