Popular blogger, Tunde Ednut, on Wednesday attracted the wrath of Nigerians following his comment on the Innoson’s Sport Utility Vehicle given to the winner of Season 4 BBNaija’s winner, Mercy.
The brand new N25 million Innoson Motors sport utility vehicle (SUV) was part of the N60 million package for the winner of the reality TV show.
However, while commenting on his Instagram page, Ednut described the SUV as ‘Nepa Motor’ saying such do not befit the winner of the show.
He wrote: “See the car they are giving to Lambo (Mercy) after all the money they made. Not even a G-wagon or Range, na NEPA MOTOR.”
Meanwhile, his comment was greeted with heavy criticism from Nigerians on Twitter.
@nonsookongwu -This is very simple… for bashing innoson motors, can we all, every igbo person unfollow Tunde Ednut or report his account ? He feels like he has some power to thrash talk someone’s brand when he has a failed career. If not so social media, Tunde for dey sell groundnut. Idiot!
@SouthEastNaija – What Tunde Ednut said about the Innoson SUV is surprisingly how a lot of Yoruba’s view Igbos. If its fake then its Aba Made. Permit me to say this. Ndi Igbo are the most creative, enterprising and hardworking tribe in Nigeria did I even add Richest too.
@UchePOkoye – Tunde Ednut made jest of Innoson and called it “Onitsha NEPA motor”. Like I don’t understand how these morons look down on anything from East like they can do better. The way these Traffic swamp dwellers talk down on Onitsha you would think Lagos is a Santorini!
@SpearSaint – Innoson is bigger than what Tunde Ednut can ever be. People hate on things they cant get. Its disgusting what he did & he doesn’t have sense to know.
@Hashtag2weets – I saw a lot of comments by supposed celebrities, Tunde Ednut and Omo Akin especially on the Innosson jeep given to Mercy. The only reason they are condemning the car is because it’s Nigerian made or should i say made in the South East.
@eNKay_rave – When Tunde Ednut was cyber bullying Tacha, y’all were cheering him on…always remember that the cub you raise would still bite you when it grows to become a lion
@Saint_Iykay – I used to think Tunde Ednut had sense. It’s now obvious his brain is smaller than a single grain of rice.
@Seyi_shy1 Tunde ednut is from kogi and he stays in usa…so why the attack on yoruba and Lagos
. You can make your point without dragging tribes into it. Attack the person that made the statement haba
@Onyema_Donald – Tunde Ednut insulted Innoson motors not the East, please don’t bring region into this.
@iambrunodgentle – The same tunde ednut that failed as a musician and comedian is making jest of an investment. Dead brain cells.
