Peter Okoye is currently being dragged through the mud on Instagram after he made a post that has been deemed insensitive by many.
The one half of singing duo- PSquare, took to his handle to call out Nigerians for demanding that celebrities stand up in the face of the ongoing economic situation.
A likely a response to the backlash that many celebrities have suffered in the last few days for failing to show up at the #IStandWithNigeria protest on 6 February after 2face backed out, Peter Okoye posted a thumbs down emoji and captioned it;
“celebs dis!… Celebs dat! Like seriously! Face the F**king Govt! #EnoughIsEnough.”
This singular action which many deem insensitive especially in the light of the current economic hardship, has enraged Nigerians to no end. It met with disapproval from many quarters with insults being hurled at the singer for not showing empathy for the cause of the average Nigerian and choosing rather to tow the path of the unbothered and privileged few.
Read some of the comments from very angry fans.
