Veteran Nigerian rap star Eldee The Don recently took to his page on Twitter with a post in which he reacted to the ban of America’s present, Donald Trump, across several social media platforms.
The rapper in his post submitted that banning people on social media simply because they have different opinions is a demonstration of tyranny.
“Banning someone from a social media platform simply because you don't agree with their opinions is a classic demonstration of tyranny.”

However, the post by Eldee generated mixed reactions from his followers on his platform. One follower who did not agree with him wrote:
“I no gree. Definitions of tyranny either include arbitrary, undue, state/government or excessive. Twitter have terms of service, this was overdue instead of undue, they are NOT part of the state and considering people died, definitely NOT excessive.”
Eldee while responding to the follower made it clear that although he is not a Trump supporter, the president shouldn’t have been banned because of his views or values.

Also countering Eldee’s position another follower said:
"He was not banned for having an opinion, he was banned for instigating and inciting violence. He was banned so that such evil as was seen perpetuated could be nipped in the bud!!!"

A follower also called on Eldee to look at the ban from a point of necessary restraint.
"How about when the posts are inciting people to violence, especially when the person occupies a high influencer position and wields so much power?? Let's look at it from the standpoint of a necessary restraint...to prevent civil unrest or even more."
Legit.ng previously reported that Trump blew hot after Twitter suspended his personal account on the social media platform on Friday, January 8.
The US president accused the employees of the website of conniving with Democrats and the Radical Left to silence him and the 75m people that voted for him. Trump's tweets were immediately taken down from the official government handle @POTUS which he used to threaten the website.
