Davido, Other Celebrities Drag Desmond Elliot Over Leaked Video On Regulation Of Social Media

Davido, Other Celebrities Drag Desmond Elliot Over Leaked Vi

Davido, Erigga among other Nigerian celebrities have critised Desmond Elliot, a Nollywood actor and member representing Surulere Constituency in the Lagos State House of Assembly, over his recent comment on the regulation of speech on social media. 

This comes days after Elliot was accused of sponsoring a bill seeking to regulate and control speech on social media.

According to Dr. Olufunmilayo, a Twitter user, the aim of the bill is to deny the Lekki massacre and arrest people who tweet about it.

Shortly after, the lawmaker debunked the report in a video, stating that the only thing he said was about celebrities,  influencers, and motivational speakers cutting down on hate narrative.

He also maintained that no state assembly has the jurisdiction to pass any bill as it only lies on the exclusive list at the federal level.

However, a new video of the plenary session has surfaced in the social media community, where he is seen saying that the youth, social media, and influencers need to be addressed.

However, reacting to Elliot's speech, Davido in his tweet said that the lawmaker destroyed all the childhood memories he gave him.
