Thoughts

It was quite unnecessary from . As insensitive as Banks’ timing and post was, could have done that in other ways – a DM, perhaps? The comment on Banks’ tweet made look like he was either angry/raging as a Nigerian youth, trying to dissociate himself from Bank’s insensitivity or simply clout-chasing for PR.

Earlier in the day, he did an interview with Financial Times about the EndSARS protests. For this reason, he needs to stay on brand. Equally, it is also informative on the potential state of affairs between both artists as not very cordial. doesn’t blow up at people like that on social media. It could also be a publicity stunt for the song.
