Social media space, Twitter went agog yesterday Sunday 20th of June 2021 over claims that Nigerian singer Chike charged four hundred thousand naira for a birthday shoutout.
The 'boo of the booless' made it to the trending table yesterday after a lady claimed that Chike wanted to charge her a sum of four hundred thousand naira to give a birthday shoutout.
The reactions came after a Twitter user (@_hashcode) uploaded a video where he surprised his girlfriend with a birthday shoutout from one of her favourite actors, Joseph Morgan - a popular British actor best known for his role as 'Klaus' in Vampire Diaries.
The video which had a lot of retweets and comments from people who commended the thoughtfulness of the boyfriend took another turn when a Twitter user (@Queenprecy_) quoted the tweet stating that the R'n'B singer charged her four hundred thousand naira for the same birthday wish British star Joseph Morgan did for free. She wrote:
"Chike in the mud, asked for 400k to do birthday shoutout early this year"
