The Nigerian Popular Singer, Teni, on Tuesday received a national award from the Nigeria President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.).
A clip of the singer, Teni receiving the award from Buhari had gone viral and stirred up mixed reactions from social media users, with a section of the Nigerians sphere describing the attitude she put up as disrespectful, other Nigerians applauding her for not sharing a conversation with the commander in chief of armed forces.
The Nigerian Singer who was described by a tweep as ‘gangster’ was conferred an award of Member of the Order of Niger yesterday, Tuesday.
Odigbo Okechukwu, one of the tweep while reacting to the trended video clip said, “I come across people abusing Teni for disrespecting president, and what comes to mind (is) how women were subjected to ordinary things in Nigeria. This people have never lent their voice and ask question about the people that murdered Deborah and millions of women facing inequality.”
Another, Stgorzhye, revealed that the singer had not behaved disrespectfully towards the president. According to him “You people cry about Teni, what did she do in the video that is disrespectful? Na by force to smile to President or na by force to shake am? It’s understandable that many of us do not have the balls to show displeasure openly, because we like celebrating nonsense.”
Ridwanullahii Another tweep who reacted said, “You don’t have to accept national honours if you go to that stage and disrespect the Office of the President. If you accept the honours, you have to honour him while accepting it. Respect is reciprocal. Meanwhile, I haven’t seen anything Teni did wrong in that video. A pointer?”
Gbolahan also added his own tweet, “Teni no send una president oooo Love it… �If she shaked him (na wahala), she no still shake am, na still wahala.”
Another tweep identified as Qudus Akanbi brought in the Yoruba culture into the talk saying, “Teni compromised the Yoruba culture in her just because she want to be seen as a gangster in front of the mob. This video will be playing for her in the future when she is no more a gangster. As a Yoruba girl, you stood to receive an award from a man old to be your grandfather.”
