She also criticized Nigerians for supporting artists as they demean themselves online instead of holding the government accountable for the country’s urgent issues.

She tweeted,

“I don’t see anything wrong in informing your listeners of the genre of music an artist makes especially when you feel it doesn’t define your art.
