Ayodeji Balogun aka Wizkid, a Grammy-winning Nigerian musician, has responded to the Federal Government’s decision to suspend Twitter’s operations in the country.
On Saturday, June 5, the superstar took to the Insta-story section of his verified Instagram account to finally address the trending topic.
Wizkid referred to Nigeria in his post as UAR – which stands for United African Republic, the country’s proposed new name that was presented to the House of Representatives earlier this week.
He then inquired as to whether the Federal Government’s decision to ban Twitter in Nigeria is permanent.
Starboy wrote; “UAR…na so the ting go dey sup?”.

Recall that the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, announced Friday that Twitter would be suspended indefinitely due to what he called the platform’s “persistent use for activities capable of undermining Nigeria’s corporate existence.”
