Award-winning Afro-pop singer, Ayo Balogun popularly known as Wizkid has lambasted President Muhammadu Buhari and counterpart in the United States, Donald Trump over the recent protests and killings by police in both countries.

There has been serious unrest in most states in the United States of America over the killing of George Floyd, an African American man who died in the hands of a police officer in Minneapolis. While there have been killings by Nigerian police, bandits in the Northern region, and rape allegations.

In a series of tweets posted via his Twitter page, the music star said both leaders are clueless on the issues bothering their countries.


According to him, the only difference between both Presidents is that one of them uses Twitter frequently.

Wizkid on his Twitter page wrote: “Buhari/Trump same person lol. Only difference be say one sabi use Twitter pass the other. Clueless!

Wizkid had earlier reacted to the recent happenings in Nigeria after Justice for Tina became a trending topic after a trigger-happy police officer aimed at a bus diver who he was trying to arrest for violating curfew and in the process mistakenly shot the unarmed teenager who happened to be nearby.

He wrote; “Police dey kill black Americans and Nigeria police dey kill Nigerians. No man fit solve this matter. God save us. God save the world! Save the people.”

His tweets are coming at a time when Nigerians are also seeking justice for the alleged rape of Vera Uwaila Omozuwa, a 100-level Microbiology student of University of Benin, UNIBEN who was allegedly raped and murdered by some unknown persons while reading in a Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, in Benin City.

Her death has since led to reactions and a demand for justice from Nigerians.
