The tide on social media is continuously unpredictable and every action can indict anyone one way or another. Davido in all his wisdom has chosen to move swiftly especially with the current climate in Nigeria.
One of the actions he took was to suspend his aide Israel Afeare who decided to give his two pence on Hushpuppi’s arrest.
Nigerian internet sensation Hushpuppi was sentenced to 20 years in jail for money laundering related charges. It was no long after that Abba Kyari, a high ranking police officer was also mentioned to allegedly have links to businesses Hushpuppi was engaged in.
Social media commentators had mixed feelings as some expressed that they saw it coming and knew his cup was already full. Others also admitted that they will miss him dearly as he was always an interesting account to follow and had many times made them happy with his shenanigans.
Some comments seem to be costly than others as Davido’s aide Israel Afeare’s comment came at a cost to him. He made bold statements in solidarity with the police officer Abba Kyari in a post that reads “FBI should give us direct link or indicting fact s which linked DCP Abba Kyari and Hushpuppy in sharing or benefiting from 1.1M dollar investigation under their supervision…”
He did not stop there and posted another story stating vehemently that he stands with Abba Kyari and that he is a “clean cop”.
He included that no one is a saint and the police officer has been pivotal in combating arm robbery and kidnapping cases in Nigeria.
He should have known better that when you are associated with certain names, your comments hold weight than the average person and this is not an issue you should give unwarranted opinions on. Davido who was clearly not happy with his comments chose to suspend him.
It was said that his suspension was indeed linked to his posts on social media which ends up indicting his boss because he is popularly known for being “Davido’s aide”. He has since been banned from coming around or hanging out with Davido. The rest of the members of the 30 billion gang should take note. Read commentary here
