You are quick to tag me when there is a problem but very slow to support – Ruggedman berates fans

Veteran Nigerian rapper, Ruggedman has taken to social media to berate his fans over their inability to show support. The rapper/activist said people are very quick to tag him on social media whenever there is a trending issue that needs to be amplified but the same set of people are slow to support him. Ruggedman said whenever he shares videos of people that have suffered some form of injustice, he gets as much as 20k views. He, however, noted that even after begging people to subscribe to his YouTube page he has barely managed to garner as much as a thousand followers.

Add us on BBM Pin 55DBCBDA for Updates

I am convinced that the data rate increase ordered by Buhari through NCC is deliberately meant to reduce access to internet for ordinary Nigerians so that the influence of social media on Buhari and his co-travellers will be limited.

By my own estimation, at least 50% of internet users will not be able to subscribe regularly as before and at least 20% may stop subscribing entirely for social media purposes.
