This will be our Friday guilty pleasure.
So yesterday, rapper and entrepreneur Ruggedman began to a short rant on Twitter, speaking about why he has not been verified as a celebrity. Amongst others, he said, “My account can not be verified cos I have switched my handle before.Unless I get a new one n stay on it”.
Okay. Not surprisingly, the reaction on Twitter was immediate, and – oh dear Lord – so vicious. See our top ten picks!
@iam_dQ: Ruggedman has a clothing line? i’m sure you guys means a line on where he dries his clothes in the sun..””
@LAkintobi: There needs to be a media training course for Nigerian celebrities. Foot in mouth syndrome is a huge problem.
@ColorMeCake Your account cannot be verified because you don’t matter anymore. Stop making excuses for things that don’t matter @RuggedyBaba
@madphury All I’m saying is, if you’ve failed at Music, Shoes and a Clothing line, an ‘unverified’ account should be the least of your f***ing worries
@je_mc2 I think Rugged Man should worry more about releasing a verified good album, than getting a verified twitter account.
@Miss_Jayla Abi did they pay Rugged to distract us from talking about the bomb blasts?
