Nigerian Afrobeat superstar, Wizkid, has received backlash from social media after appearing at the funeral of Killbeats mother in Ghana, following the ongoing polls in Nigeria to elect a new leader.
On Saturday 25 February 2023, Wizkid appeared on Tema among other musical colleagues mourning with beat producer Killbeat.
His failure to perform his civic duty to exercise his franchise as a Nigerian citizen on a day when all Nigerians across the country converged to vote for the election of a new president caused netizens to react on social media.
The Essence hitmaker ditched the elections to be with his Ghanaian brothers to mourn the loss of his colleague’s mother.
A video of the moment surfaced online and sparked a heated debate among netizens who expressed disappointment with the artiste for not standing up for his country during the emergency.
