Sometimes, these entertainers take the drama from the big screen to the social media streets. Here are celebrity feuds that rocked Nigerian social media.
MI and Vector
The duo of MI and Vector are talented rappers that are often compared to one another. On August 30, 2018, Vector had reacted to MI’s song titled, ‘You Rappers Should Fix up Your Lives.’ During a radio interview, Vector maintained that MI was wrong to have condemned Nigerian rappers in the song.
Then in 2019, MI and his team threw shaded Vector on a song, ‘Martell Cypher’. Then Vector and his crew dissed MI on the track, ‘The Purge’. And it kept going on and on.
MI branded Vector a snake, stating that Vector had allowed bitterness to consume him. Unrelenting, Vector fired back at MI in the song, ‘Judas the Rat’, where he claimed MI was responsible for the failure of Jesse Jagz’s music career.
The noise died but the feud lives on.
Liz Anjorin and Toyin Abraham
In 2019, Anjorin took to her Instagram page to accuse Abraham of filing a report against her to Saudi authorities that she was trafficking cocaine, which led to her being searched at the airport. Anjorin also claimed that Abraham often opened fake social media pages to criticise her colleagues online.
Reacting through her lawyers, Abraham warned Liz to retract her posts and apologise to her or risk being sued. Responding, Anjorin’s lawyers also threatened to counter-sue Abraham.
Anjorin maintained that Toyin had her new baby at a traditional birth attendant’s place, while Abraham released a video showing her in a Lekki-Lagos hospital, in what seemed to be shortly after she was delivered of her son.
Though both actresses have not publicly apologised to each other, they’ve stopped the feud on social media.
Eniola Badmus and Uche Ogbodo
Uche Ogbodo, shared series of nude pictures to celebrate her birthday. Actress and comedian, Eniola Badmus, condemned Ogbodo, saying that despite the provocative nature of the pictures, they didn’t get her the attention she craved.
This was not out of nowhere. Just weeks prior, Ogbodo had publicly body-shamed Badmus.
Halima Abubakar and Cossy Ojiakor
Once upon a time, Cossy Ojiakor and Halima Abubakar used to be best friends. However, the relationship changed when Ojiakor revealed that Abubakar betrayed her.
Some months ago, Uche Ogbodo shared a picture of herself, Uche Elendu and Halima Abubakar on her Instagram page. Cossy then commented on the picture, referring to Abubakar as a snake. She claimed that it was Abubakar’s then boyfriend that wrote a story that she, Cossy, slept with a dog for money.
Tiwa Savage and Charles Anazodo
Tiwa Savage, and football analyst, Charles Anazodo, engaged in a Twitter feud. It all started when Anazodo accused the singer of walking past him without saying ‘hi’ when they met at a radio station.
However, the ‘Lova Lova’ singer didn’t waste time in replying Anazodo. She wrote, “Firstly, I’m sure you saw me rushing to the studio because I was late for my interview, plus I had a hat on. Secondly, I’m glad I didn’t say hi because who are you to think you can’t say hi first”.
The verbal exchange continued as Charles responded to the tweet, writing, “I’m nobody– just another human being. Cheers.”
The fallout generated a lot of reactions from Nigerians on social media.
