Prominent Nigerian celebrities stripped of Twitter verification badges, failing to comply with Twitter’s new rule.

Award-winning Nigerian superstar singers Davido, Burna Boy and Wizkid, and others have lost their Twitter badges after failing to comply with Twitter CEO, Elon Musk’s new rules and regulations.

The social media app reported last year, stating it had made plans to start charging $20 a month for users to stay verified.

However, the premium service was said to be rolled out according to report under the leadership of Elon Musk.

Musk, the gigantic entrepreneur and CEO of the social media platform, on Sunday, October 30, made it known via his tweet,

“The whole verification process is being revamped right now”.

The company also plan to raise its optional $ 4.99 -a-month premium subscription called Twitter Blue to $19.99  a month. However, that price is subject to change. Citing internal correspondence and people familiar with the matter.

Twitter CEO, Musk proceeded further via his tweet that failure to comply with his rules meant an automatic loss of one’s verification, which social media users use in differentiating a celebrity’s page from that of the common man.

Keeping to his words, celebrities and public figures are stripped of their verification badges, not leaving Nigerian superstar trio exempted.


After a thorough check was conducted on the superstar Twitter pages, the trio lost their verification check marks for not complying with the new rules changes.
