Nigerian celebrities and entrepreneurs have responded to the removal of the blue check verification badge from the Twitter accounts of thousands of public figures. This was after Elon Musk, on Thursday, followed through on his final date for the removal of the free blue badge. Actor, model, and entrepreneur, Pere, reacted to the blue badge removal by saying, “I will not pay a dime for your verification badge @elonmusk; you ruined the purpose for having it. Werey somebody.” He further stated that everyone is now on the same level and joked that there’s nothing we won’t see on Elon Musk’s internet.
