Nigerian artiste, David Adeleke aka Davido has reacted to Nollywood actor and politician, Desmond Elliot’s stance on social media regulation.
The legislator in a sitting at the Lagos state house of assembly, called for a ‘change in narrative’ as regards the way some unruly behavior is displayed on social media.
According to him, the respect culture in Nigeria is gone and if the lawmakers don’t take action now, there will be no Nigeria in the next 5 years.
In his words:
“Social media is good but it has Negative impacts.
Let me thank you for condeming the killings and carnage that happened at Lekki. When i went through the comments i could not believe it Mr. Speaker, the curses, the abuses from children and i ask myslef, is this Nigeria ? What is going on?
Children cursing, people having the effontery to enter an Oba’s palace, hold the staff of office ? Culture is gone. Mr. Speaker, in the next 5 years, there will be no Nigeria if we don’t act now.”
Desmond Elliot was strongly condemned and dragged by social media users for allegedly supporting an anti-social media bill.
In reaction to his comment, the “FEM” crooner tweeted, “Desmond Elliot just destroyed all the precious child hood memories he gave us in movies ….”
