Nigerian rapper, Eldee The Don has come to the defense of US President Donald Trump who has been banned by major social media networks.
According to El Dee, the decision by social media techs to ban Trump is a “classic demonstration of tyranny.”
El Dee wrote: “Banning someone from a social media platform simply because you don’t agree with their opinions is a classic demonstration of tyranny.”
Twitter Inc has permanently banned Trump’s personal account for repeated rules violations, marking the most high-profile punishment the social-media company has ever imposed.
“After close review of recent Tweets from the @realDonaldTrump account and the context around them — specifically how they are being received and interpreted on and off Twitter — we have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement of violence,” the company wrote in a blog post on Friday.
It would be recalled that Mr Trump was locked out of his account for 12 hours on Wednesday after he called the people who stormed the US Capitol “patriots”.
