Amidst all the cyber dragging that transpired on twitter hours over the Desmond Elliot’s submission and statement on social media bill and referring the vibrant Nigerian youths as ‘Children’, rapper M.I_Abaga had this contribution to make.
The well known Nigerian Rapper, Jude ‘MI’ Abaga (@mi_abaga) has said that the people who are actively involved voting are usually not on social media.
He said this while reacting to the various clips showing Lawmakers speaking at plenary, in which some very unsatisfactory words were used to describe young people.
The rapper tweeted;
“Let me tell what the law makers have said to us today.. they know we won’t vote.. and that the people that vote aren’t on social media.. they can speak about us like that because they don’t think it will affect their office..
“You getting your PVC?”

Desmond Elliot said;
“Let’s start from 20th when it happened. On the 20th of October, I was devastated. I stayed all night awake and I got to DJ Switch’s Instagram live, but I started getting death threats so I logged out.
“They were like ohh so you have sent army to kill us. And I’m like, Oh my God. The thing is changing. It’s not about that. So when I got to plenary, it was the whole emotions that went through. And I saw people Killing people, I saw people running away with things and there was just a whole lot going on……”
