Anti-Bobrisky protest in Abuja
Nigerian youth on Wednesday took to the streets in Abuja to protest against what they described as moral decadence of Idris Okunneye popularly known as Bobrisky.
The protesters, under the aegis of National Youths Council of Nigeria, while disowning him, said they stood by the National Centre for Arts and Culture, National Council of Women Society, Christian Association of Nigeria and other organisations that had taken a stand against Bobrisky and his activities.
They bore inscriptions and placards all condemning the culture promoted by Bobrisky and his supporters.
The Vice President of NYCN (North Central Zone), Mukhtar Jebba, described the activities of Bobrisky as “ungodly, unhealthy and disgusting.”
…Tonto Dikeh’s reaction
Tonto Dikeh reacted to the protests against her best friend, Bobrisky.
She slammed the protesters and said she couldn’t believe Nigerians would focus on Bobrisky when there are other things to protest against.
“Our country is collapsing by the day, no road, no jobs, no medicals, no education, killings everywhere, poverty, robbery, corruption, I could go on and on. And some youths took out time to stage a paid protest against Bobrisky?? Excuse me??? Talk about misplaced priorities, sigh,” she wrote

Naira Marley barred from performing at Unilag

Fans of the singer were displeased by this decision and resorted to disrupting the event and also attacking other guests at the event.
