In a surprising turn of events, Nigerian music sensations Davido, Burna Boy, and Wizkid have recently lost their Twitter verification badges. This development has left fans and followers of these prominent artists speculating about the possible reasons behind the removal of their coveted blue ticks.
One possible explanation for this development is linked to Twitter’s new policy surrounding the Twitter verification subscription fee. Elon Musk, the CEO of Twitter, had previously announced a new policy regarding the verification process on the platform. According to the new guidelines, users with verified accounts were required to pay a subscription fee to maintain their blue badge status. The deadline for the payment of this fee was set for April 20, 2023.
Musk took to his verified Twitter account to announce the final date for the removal of free blue badges. Since the deadline has now passed, it appears that the Nigerian singers may have failed to pay the required fee, resulting in the loss of their verification status. As of now, there has been no official statement from the artists or their management teams regarding this matter.
The loss of verification badges for these three Nigerian superstars has caused a stir among their fans and the general public. Many are questioning the fairness of Twitter’s new policy and are concerned about its potential impact on the visibility and credibility of their favorite artists on the platform.
It remains to be seen whether Davido, Burna Boy, and Wizkid will address this issue and take the necessary steps to regain their verification badges on Twitter. For now, fans will have to wait and see if this development will have any long-term effects on the careers and online presence of these talented musicians.
