Popular Nigerian singer Ayodeji Balogun aka Wizkid has clamped down on President Muhammadu Buhari via a post shared on his official Twitter page.
The singer reacted to a goodwill message from the Nigerian president to US president, Donald Trump, and his wife, Melania, who recently tested positive for coronavirus.
