The Nigerian entertainment industry might look very glamorous but it is definitely a very competitive one with fans using themselves as agents of hate and online trolling.
A number of top Nigerian entertainers have been dragged at one point or the other on social media by overzealous fans of their colleagues.
On August 14, 2020, Grammy-nominated Nigerian singer, Burna Boy, released his new album as promised and it caused quite a buzz on social media.
While a number of people focused on Burna’s new body of work, others decided it was an opportunity for them to bring down his colleagues in the music industry.
Top singer, talent manager and politician, Banky W, is not having any of such comparisons and decided it was a teachable moment as he took to his Twitter page to speak on the issue.
According to Banky W, fans should note that acknowledging Burna Boy’s unquestionable greatness is not an avenue for them to try to put up or bring down Davido and Wizkid.
He wrote: “Dear fans, please note: Acknowledging @burnaboy's unquestionable greatness doesn't mean we must bring up (or put down) Wiz, David or anyone else. And vice versa.”

Just recently, Legit.ng reported that Nigerians took to social media in large numbers to react to Burna Boy's Twice As Tall album.
The Grammy-nominated star wowed fans with his discography in 2019 and obviously did not have any plans of disappointing them in 2020.
The singer reportedly travelled to the UK and had his listening party on his Instagram live and fans were on hand to show love to the album.
