- Patoranking has taken to social media to throw a subtle shade at singers doing online music challenge
- The talented singer in a tweet stated that singers should be helping the less privileged during the lockdown
- Some social media users believe his tweet wasn't necessary as musicians are simply keeping their fans entertained
Many seem to be enjoying the new trend of Nigerian singers doing music challenge on Instagram live, where singers play hit songs in a battle for the best singer. Nigerians are loving it and have called for more singers to partake in it.
However, Patoranking is not impressed by this. He recently took to the Twitter platform to throw shade at singers doing the challenge instead of going out to help the less privileged on the streets who are most affected by the lockdown.
He wrote: "Instead Make we artist come together and contribute money to support people, Those once wey no Dey online Oo, Wey understand wetin giveaway mean ( people for slums and ghetto) wey Dey disadvantaged due to this Covid-19 Lockdown, una Dey here Dey talk about this Vs This, Wise up."

Many Nigerians reacted to the post, most of whom defended the singers doing the challenge as they believe they are simply keeping their fans entertained due to the boredom the lockdown has caused.

In other news, Legit.ng earlier reported the news of how controversial Nigerian singer, Burna Boy set tongues wagging after he more or less dragged Reekado Banks, calling him unworthy to get into a music challenge with him.
When it comes to tweeting controversial stuff, this wouldn't be the first time as Burna Boy would be asserting that he is a music god better than most Nigerian singers. So, to many, this was expected.
However, many other social media users believed his tweet was not only disrespectful to Reekado Banks, but it also downplayed the former Mavin signee's works as a musician.
