The current social media trend is of Nigeria rap star, M.I Abaga who took to his Twitter page to respond to music star, Akon’s tweet where he called Wizkid little brother.
African-American singer, Akon tweeted earlier that he and Wizkid who he called lil bro was at AfroNation show in Ghana with a picture of them on stage.
M.I Abaga however, took to his own Twitter page to reply Akon saying that he should chill with the little brother stuff. This implies that Akon shouldn’t have referred Wizkid to as little brother considering the height he’s attained in the music game.
OG abeg chill with that lil bro yan https://t.co/pdHteEtZVW— Yung denzL (@MI_Abaga) December 30, 2019
Meanwhile, many Nigeria social media users have taken to the platform to lash out at M.I for such comment.
Many of them took the dimension that Akon is as more accomplished in the music game than Wizkid who could even in turn refer Akon as big brother.
Judging by the tweets from these users below, you’ll likely observe that no one tried to understand the point M.I. was trying to make though his reason was very clear.
See some of the comments below;
I am very sure Akon had no ill intention calling Wizkid lil bro , they aren’t even competitors to start with, they have no business linking them , two different men , but the typical Nigerian mind in MI picked an offence .. Same MI who called vector son 🤦🏾♂️ pls 2020 no bad vibes .— Volqx (@volqx) December 30, 2019

MI Abaga was expecting Twitter NG Validation and Wizkid FC to back him up, Man no sabi say e drop heavy misyarn and Vector fans are loving every bit of it.😂— Omoniyi Israel (@_omoissy) December 30, 2019
Even Wizkid will call Akon “Egbon.” Is it age, number of global hits, net worth, International awards, charity works across Africa and beyond. Akon is light years ahead.— Ediye (@iamOkon) December 30, 2019
Because somebody is the toast of the globe now no mean say we no go respect our elders. Akon is a Legend.
Lol guess MI is banting because I dont see how Wizkid is not Akon's Little Brother on all Levels. From Accomplishments to Age & Status Wizkid is his Little Brother.— King Nonny 👑 (@Zaddy_nomso) December 30, 2019
If Wizkid get headache now e no go see Panadol take coz M.I don swallow am on e behalf— Four-eyed Edo boy™ (@Alex_Houseof308) December 31, 2019
MI is just 3 years older than Vector but called him his son, but is the same person saying Akon 17 years older than Wizkid can’t address him as Lil bro?— King Iseunife 👑 (@TheShawnife) December 30, 2019
Wetin we no go see for this Obasanjo internet
Moreover, after viewing some of these comments from Nigerians, M.I returned with another tweet confirming that Wizkid had accomplished and overcome larger obstacles which makes him little brother to none.
He however advised that Africans should value who they’re and what people have accomplished, which is how Africa will rise.
I have an opinion: few African artists in diaspora actually did anything to REALLY help the movement.. as a fan of Wizkid (which I am) I don't see Wiz as lil bro to Akon.. he has overcome larger obstacles to accomplish way more (in my eyes).. In my opinion Wiz is lil bro to none— Yung denzL (@MI_Abaga) December 31, 2019
I have shared my opinion.. you don't agree. Cool!!! that caption should say 'with my bro and icon'.. again my opinion..— Yung denzL (@MI_Abaga) December 31, 2019
Value what we are.. what we have.. what we have accomplished over everything else.. that is how Africa will rise..— Yung denzL (@MI_Abaga) December 31, 2019
Everyone will be alright
