Nigerian comedian and skit creator Mr. Macaroni has reportedly receiving death threats for refusing to back a particular presidential candidate.
The comedian provided a comprehensive account of how he was threatened by a woman he met
while visiting his mother in a series of tweets released via his Twitter profile on Sunday, August 14, 2022.
“I went to visit my mother 2 weeks ago. I was giving out money to some people in the neighborhood as I always do anytime I go home. A woman walked up to me and asked why I am against a particular candidate. I said I am not against anyone. All I want is for a better country,” he tweeted.
“And that can only happen when we vote in good leaders. The next thing she said is that I should better watch myself because they know where my people live. I asked if that was a threat and she continued saying all sorts. My sister and manager were with me and I have a video!!”
“I can go on and on about different threats that I have received from some party members or supporters of a presidential candidate because they somehow believe that I am against their choice. Cyberbullying via different online attacks and tribal propaganda.”
The comedian however reiterates that he will never give up on telling the truth and getting his point across to Nigerians.
