"What kind of voice is this? E no follow abeg."
"Nice one.. But the voice wasn't necessary.. You can pass your message without mimicking.. BTW, that's not even Peter Obi's voice! He has a nice and meek voice. This looks like mockery to me."
"Producing yeye film every 4 market days, abeg gerarahia."
"Using everything to make money. Is that how Peter obi spaek? So in other ways you are indirectly calling him a stingy man. You can't try that with atiku or the other mpa."
"Mimicking his voice in this manner is not Kool tho…it’s a movie so you should have been yourself while telling the story…people will still get the message but trying to ridicule his voice that manner is just not Kool…but great story line…"
