Nigerian singer, Esegine Allen, more popularly known as Orezi, on Thursday, posted a photo of himself burning a one thousand Naira note and this got him into trouble with Nigerians.
Orezi shared the photo as artwork to promote a new single of his on his verified Instagram handle but his creativity was lost on Nigerians as they found his action, a form of disrespect to the nation.
Just as some Nigerians were not pleased with his artwork, others praised his creativity. Some others even said the burning of the Naira note wasn’t real, that it was photoshop.
turblisswealths: You are burning Nigerian currency as if is paper, you will now tell people to respect Nigeria😒😒
official_my_creations_my_joy: But you shouldn’t do that even if it’s art. It means you are abusing our currency, just a suggestion though.
diplawmatik: I know you are looking for free publicity But you no try on this one. Condemnation and distraction nah him you dey write letter to…so childish. I just pity you.
i.am_sustain: Bruh, just do give away if the money is much to control. There are many that need it nothing like artistic money. Put a smile on the face of your true fans.
diplawmatik: @oreziworldwide you can’t even lie it’s not a real Naira, because I’m a printer and I can’t tell when I see a real Naira note. Honestly, you try for human side and it not even proper on God side.
bolanleakinkuade: Don’t burn naira no matter what….if you burn $100 in America you go to jail.
fidel.bob: Rubbish, you want attention now you get it,
chriskryse: I no understand again oh 👉👉shey Photoshop na crime for this country ni?… 9ja with their too much energy self!!!
keishdiamond: Your politicians and fake pastors are stealing billions from your nation but you will go to their social media pages to be praising and hailing them, Orezi post one pic of him burning FAKE N1000 note and you guys want to crucify him!? Nigeria, are you guys for real? Are you people serious? Stop being petty, It’s just art abeg get over it. Msteeeeww all of a sudden everyone is patriotic, meanwhile two minutes ago you were insulting and whining about the country and how you want to go to “the abroad” 🤣🤣🤣🤣
kvnsmcc: That’s an artistic paper, why are you all getting mad?
elrapheeeq: Even if they have it and can do it, nobody online here has verified if it’s real or fake, but we should give them benefit of the doubt and be positive about it. People are so pessimistic that they won’t even look at the positives.
