Tekno vs Wizkid vs Davido

As expected, the news escalated into the unending Wizkid vs Davido argument, but this time, add Tekno to the mix.

While we patiently wait for the outcome of Tekno and Drake’s collaboration, here are other interesting topics on social media this week.

Why was #SupportSARS trending?

Following last week’s #EndSARS campaign on social media, Nigerian youths decided to take it to the street in form of rallies in major cities across Nigeria. However, the Nigerian Police Force had their own plans; an anti End SARS campaign.

Using the #SupportSARS hashtag on social media and more supporters with colourful banners on the street, #SupportSARS managed to overshadow #EndSARS.

On a lighter note, read this hilarious open letter to SARS.

NLS’s discrimination against Hijab

On Tuesday, the Nigerian Law School (NLS) inducted a total of 4,294 new lawyers into the Nigerian Bar Association with the exception of one person; a lady named Abdulsalaam Firdausa Amasa. According to the tweet below, Firdausa was denied being called to bar because she wore a Hijab under her wig.

Nigerian Muslims expressed their displeasure on social media using the #EndDiscriminationAgainstHijab hashtag.

Others believe the law must be upheld regardless

Kiss Daniel’s Level 4 salary

Kiss Daniel’s legal battle with G-Worldwide continues this week with a shocking revelation from his lawyers. They reportedly issued a statement claiming that for two years, the record label placed Kiss Daniel on a ₦30,000 salary which later increased to ₦50,000.

Nigerians reacted, with humour

As G-Worldwide is yet to issue a reply to these statements, the drama continues!
