Onochie who is an aide to Buhari on Social Media had berate the singer for describing the President as an old man while passing across his message on the End SARS movement in a tweet two days ago.
Directing his tweet on Tuesday night to Onochie, Wizkid stressed that a 77 year old man is not young adding that the she takes note of that.
He said, “A 77 year old man is not young ma. You are a woman and a mother and kids are getting killed by police/sars and this is all you have to say? shame on you!!! shame on you!! I am a father and age has nothing to do with demanding for a better governance in my country!!”.
Earlier Wizkid while responding to Buhari’s good wishes to the President of the United States, US, Donald Trump and wife who recently tested positive for COVID-19 virus wished them quick recovery, asked Nigeria’s President to mind his business and concentrate on salvaging the country from hands of SARS and some criminal minded persons among the police force oppressing the youths.
He said, “Donald trump is not your business!
Old man! Police/Sarz still killing
Nigerian youth on a daily! Do something!
Nothing concern u for America!

This triggered the reaction of Onochie who in a tweet described Wizkid as Dumb kid.

I Stan Wizkid consistently, relentlessly and eternally. He's a man with finesse, panache and candour character which with exclusion of his undisputed music prowess and powers, his personality is a refinement of pure class and honor. Always speaking for the voiceless. A king❤— Danky🛳 (@CaptDanky) October 6, 2020
