“You’re a dumb kid” – Presidency hits at Wizkid for calling Buhari an old man

Social media aide to President Muhammadu Buhari, Mrs Laurreta Onochie, has replied popular Nigerian artiste, Ayo Balogun aka Wizkid, who advised the president to jettison Afghanistanism and concentrate on local issues affecting the country.

Wizkid had earlier lambasted President Buhari hours after the Nigerian Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, banned the activities of the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad (FSARS), for wishing American President, Donald Trump and his wife, Melania, quick and full recovery from Coronavirus. 

“Donald trump is not your business!

Old man! Police/Sarz still killing

Nigerian youth on a daily! Do something

Nothing concern u for America!

Face your country!!”, Wizkid said in series of tweets.

Reacting days after Wizkid’s statement had spanned the media, Onochie on Tuesday 6th October, called the artiste a dumbkid, who exhibited crass ignorance and childishness in addressing the president. 

She stated: “Its not disrespectful to call anyone old. Its the way and manner Ayo Balogun addressed the President that leaves a sour taste in the mouth. He exhibited crass ignorance, insensitivity and childishness. But hey, he’s a  #DumbkidNotWhizKid

When he grows up, he might learn respect”.
