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. A few reactions Davido’s 30 Billion Concert:
After attending Adekunle Gold's show, there really was no reason to go and do Davido's

Good morning. If you didn’t attend Simi, BrymO, Adekunle Gold, Bez’s concert you have no right to generalize and say Nigerian artists can’t perform live. You chose to go to ‘DJ Track one” shows.

I saw #30billionconcert trending, no idea what it is, checked the feed, have fallen into #BlackTwitter.
I have NO IDEA what most of the these tweets say but apparently people are disappointed in the show and someone named WIZKID or WIZZY only lasts 60 secs.
Twitter trends SUCK

President Buhari’s only son, Yusuf Buhari, was involved in an accident where he sustained severe head injuries and has now being flown to Germany for further treatment.
I have been in Liberia monitoring elections and only just heard the sad news. My family and I are in prayers for the quick recovery of Yusuf Buhari. It is my deep desire that a young man so full of promise should live and thrive to fulfil the promises God has domiciled in him.

It is just a recycled set of individuals and they still want to continue…
Prof Wole Soyinka gave regular press conferences about 'state of the Nation' in GEJ's era. Today, he's almost completely Mute. His admirers claim he's now too old for all that (not that he has health challenges). One would think GEJ's era was like 20yrs ago.

A clap back to the above tweet but, it is the basic truth.
You’re calling on an 83-year old man to give regular press conferences. Soyinka was younger than you when he played an active role in Nigeria’s independence. What’s wrong with you? Can’t you give your own press conference?
Later you’ll start making noise about youth. Olodo https://t.co/KJTKZq4FGk

On winning the Liberian Presidential run-off election, the former football star “embraces the immense task before him”.
My fellow Liberians, I deeply feel the emotion of all the nation. I measure the importance and the responsibility of the immense task which I embrace today. Change is on.
