The presidency has lampooned Nigerian music star, Ayo Balogun aka Wizkid, for addressing President Mohammadu Buhari as ‘Old Man’.

Social media aide to President, Mrs Laurreta Onochie, Tuesday, replied the music star, who advised Buhari to jettison Afghanistanism and concentrate on local issues affected the country.


Wizkid had lambasted Buhari hours after the Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, banned the activities of Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad (FSARS), for wishing President, Donald Trump and his wife, Melania, quick and full recovery from Covid-19.

Reacting days after Wizkid’s statement had spanned the media, Onochie, called him a dumbkid, who exhibited crass ignorance and childishness in addressing President Buhari.


Her words: “Its not disrespectful to call anyone old. Its the way and manner Ayo Balogun addressed the President that leaves a sour taste in the mouth. He exhibited crass ignorance, insensitivity and childishness. But hey, he’s a #DumbkidNotWhizKid

When he grows up, he might learn respect”.
