DJ Cuppy took to Twitter on Oct. 1 to celebrate Nigeria’s independence day like every other patriotic citizen but little did she know what would be the reactions that’ll follow her tweet.
“Today, we experience the joy and pride of being called NIGERIANS! The greatest nation. #NigeriaAt58 #Nierianindependenceday “ the billionaire daughter tweeted.

Reactions followed the tweet like butterflies trying to suck nectar of a flower as bittered Nigerians who are definitely not happy about the current situation of the country stormed the reply section of the tweet.

However, some Twitter users gave the singer a thumbs up and hailed her for the independence day tweet.
Sorry I disagree to that cuppy, I personally don't see any joy or pride in being called a Nigerian::

This is why people say the rich are removed from the lives of the poor. Students were killed in Jos less than three days ago. Without so much as pen in the news papers. Which yeye joy and smelly pride are you talking about pls. Joy to be alive but not as a Nigerian. a ♠️ = ♠️
