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 issues, etc. Sometimes, they are just downright ridiculous. We make it our job to take down the names of these noisemakers.
Here are the ones we saw today:
I really hate it when we are always pitting Nigerians against themselves. One person has a song you compare to another, One person makes a film you compare to another. There’s room for all sorts of talent in our country. One person wins we all win

How does one engage culture vis a vis music? She put artists from West Africa on the album – Music from the actual source, which equals money directly and indirectly. Or do you need to see her pouring libations to Osun to be happy?

If I was a Nigerian act, even without being featured, I’d see this album as an opportunity. People aren’t just going to be doing searches for the featured acts, they’ll be doing endless searches for the genre. Forget the bants, this is a win for everyone!

I’m convinced Wizkid is using juju. Anytime the tl drags him, something big happens to fix up and do damage control. I Stan a Babalawo. 😂❤️ #brownskingirl

When Bernard Dayo isn’t writing about pop culture, he’s watching horror movies, anime and trying to pretend his addiction to Netflix isn’t a serious condition.
