|Seun's Name Is Being Draged On Social Media by Iamgrey5(m): 6:36am On Mar 22|
Seun despite your best efforts to support the Obidient movement particularly Gbadebo Rodes Vivour towards the governorship Election in Lagos State, you are being attacked for a simple Advertisement placed on your platform that painted Labour in a bad light.
Seun you need to learn that the thugs that attacked the Igbos at the election on Saturday March 18th don't use Nairaland. Hence, they were not necessarily influenced by the advertisement. In addition, there were more provocative message littered everywhere on the social media spaces before and after the election.
Besides that advertisement slogan is not different from the slogan used by Godwin Obaseki in 2019 in Edo State. The slogan used was "Edo no be Lagos". The slogan was to antagonize Tinubu who is seen as a godfather in Lagos to stay away from Edo State internal politics.
The slogan "You can't rule Lagos from Anambra" is similar to the one mentioned above because it is meant to Antagonize Peter Obi the presidential candidate of Labour party whose Election victory at the presidential poll is main reason Gbadebo stood a chance at the governorship election. It's not meant to Antagonize all Igbos.
Seun even if you felt you were somehow responsible for what we saw on Saturday in Lagos, you shouldn't have openly taken responsibility. That is a terrible public relations disaster. You should have just donated the revenue made from the advertisement and move on.
Here is a link to video made by a vloger on facebook cursing and insulting Seun because of the apology he made:

LeoDeKing:I was sad when I saw this video this morning.
The content Creator didn't even understand what happened from what she was saying, she was simply insulting the whole Yoruba race...
Calling Seun and Yorubas lazy for attacking Igbos for a mere 16k.
Imagine Seun that has ran a successful platform for nearly two decades is lazy.

I don't just understand this hatred between Igbos and Yorubas.
What I know is that no tribe in Nigeria is perfect, all of dem get their own wahala.
What I noticed when I was in the south west is that Yorubas regard you as ömö ibo if you ain't Yoruba or a northerner.......Nor be juju be dat?
|Re: Seun's Name Is Being Draged On Social Media by Iamgrey5(m): 6:51am On Mar 22|
Bahamas95:Yes most Yorubas regard any tribe after Edo State in the South or East as omo igbo.

Iamgrey5:Don't worry . When the ethnic fight starts,your family and you will definitely be the first casualty. Many Hutus that took side with their fellow Hutus against the Tutsis when divisive statements were made,majority of them died in the war.
I advise you ignorant fellows taking side with divisive politics to go watch the movie "Sometimes in April", or "Hotel Rwanda". You will see the effect of this divisive statements in Rwandan Genocide.
Those who started the divisive and ethnic bigotry that led to the war ,and their families all died,they still lost the war and ended up been under the Tutsi leadership till date.
I won't blame the Yorubas, they have not fought any war before so they can be stupid and not know the consequences
|Re: Seun's Name Is Being Draged On Social Media by raskymonojendor: 6:59am On Mar 22|
Peter Obi the tribalist and divider in chief. He basically erected huge billboards tagging Ngige as Tinubu and Awolowo's boy while he placed himself between Ojukwu and Azikiwe. People don't know that man called Peter Obi.

The whole charade was a PR disaster for Mr Seun.
He will forever be etched in the minds of several people as a tribalist and ethnic bigot.
No one cares that he was personally invested in projecting Gbadebo.
Fewer people even knew about the advert. It was his apology that nailed the coffin of his disrepute.
The election is wild and tensions are high and several people are looking for scapegoats. Regardless of what your intentions were.
Getting professional advice or insight from others experience would have nudged you towards knowing to distance yourself from such error and not publicly validate it.
If you had to, Nairaland as an entity could officially respond. And acknowledge that while the advert falls below the self righteous threshold you have set for yourself, such adverts are also popular from other candidates in the present or past, that were also similarly worded for tribal emotional impact.
If you go to the East, you think they didn’t do advert to nudge people to support Obi , because he was their own?? Further, you could have mentioned that one of the mods made the error and immediately it was recognized, it was removed and the mod temporarily relieved pending investigation. The mod is facing internal disciplinary actions and you move on…but no, you want to be the face of leaders in Nigeria taking responsibility or some Elon Musk seeking users opinion as though Musk goes to Facebook to create a poll in respect to a decision for Twitter.
Whichever way, taking responsibility when rightly done and when done for the right reason, will always be admirable.
The likes of Fisayo Soyombo who I genuinely expected to be fair in his criticism is not unsusceptible to the rage. Rather than admire your effort with the apology, he chose to malign you. Fisayo had nothing to say about Hundeyin’s bully of Kiki Mordi or on any of the saga of the so called Nigeria pseudo online intelligent community. He won’t cross Seun Kuti when Kuti brandished his gun at his neighbors guests . It even appears, it has been Mr Seun’s intention to get into the circle. Such intentions, make you a very easy target. The point is, they are building a following, and you will be sacrificed as a foundational block to increase their height.
Although, I think a properly well thought apology could serve, the apology was rather naive. Your whole attitude during the election especially in respect to Lagos state was not even balanced:
in the end to project Gbadebo , you created these monsters that now devours you.
What can you do going forward??
You can as well resign from the cesspool and ensure that your replacement is from the East. Perhaps they will forgive you then and acknowledge that you are really not a tribal or ethnic jingoistic person.

Iamgrey5:You felt Seun did nothing wrong because you didn't see anything wrong in divisive statements.
If this thing boomerang to ethnic war, Seun will be one of those to face Icc. So you don't know

Iamgrey5:No. On Twitter, he announced that he told a SW supermod mod to step down and replaced him with a SE supermod. A thread was created for his action on Nairaland but it did not last 20 minutes before the thread was deleted and the thread owner slapped with a ban.

Pierocash:It was an advertisement, a political advertisement is meant to be divisive even in more develop society.
Division is the the very nature of politics in the 21st century.
Seun gave everyone of them an equal footing here on Nairaland, Labour, PDP and APC
It was not a statement made by Seun.

raskymonojendor:it is sad, he is behaving like a lily-livered man.
I use to think he was smart and assertive.
|Re: Seun's Name Is Being Draged On Social Media by GeneralPula: 7:17am On Mar 22|
Seun is a sissy. He also talks to much. He should learn from Makinde Azeez, naijaloaded CEO. You'll barely hear him speak, yet his platform is as busy as nairaland..
I saw the thread where he was apologizing to Igbos regarding a particular advert. Why did he apologize? Even, if the advertisements isn't right, highest is to pull it down and look away..
Seun has successfully helped the Igbos on nairaland with entitlement mentality. Now, anytime something happens on nairaland that's not favoring Igbos, they'll be expecting seun to apologize..
A CEO for that matter. Where is he from self?
