Again, Davido slams Desmond Elliot over his ''condemnation'' of social media

Davido has once again slammed popular Nollywood actor turned politician, Desmond Elliot over his comments on social media bill in the Lagos State House of Assembly. 

Recall that two days ago, Davido agreed with a tweet that said Desmond Elliot is a proof that a youth could be president and still fail Nigerians.

In a new video released today, the lawmaker is heard slamming celebrities and social media influencers saying they had a grip on the EndSARS protesters. He went on to call youths CHILDREN which triggered many social media users.

Desmond said; “Mr. Speaker, we need to address certain things. The Nigerian Youth, The Social Media, The Social Influencers, All of these are making the narrative that we are seeing today, except we are joking with ourselves. Social media is good but it has Negative impacts.

“Let me thank you for condemning the killings and carnage that happened at Lekki. When i went through the comments i could not believe it Mr. Speaker, the curses, the abuses from children and i ask myself, is this Nigeria ? What is going on?

“Children cursing, people having the effrontery to enter an Oba’s palace, hold the staff of office ? Culture is gone. Mr. Speaker, in the next 5 years, there will be no Nigeria if we don’t act now.

“The youth is not only those who do the peaceful protest, those who have looted and destroyed lives are youths as well.”

“Go to the elections, if you are tired come and enter government. People are dying. The narrative must change,” he added.

Just like many Nigerians reacted, Davido also reacted tweeting;

''Desmond Elliot just destroyed all the precious child hood memories he gave us in movies.'
