It is sad that most Nigerians use the Internet to cyberbully celebrities and high-profile Nigerian officials.
Cyberbullying can be defined as bullying that takes place on the internet or on digital devices such as phones, computers, etc.
The most common place where cyberbullying occurs is online through social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, TikTok, etc.
Cyberbullying is not directed at one particular group of people but everyone is prone to cyberbullying.
In Nigeria, celebrities and high-profile Nigerians including political officials are usually cyberbullied and sadly, they can do little or nothing about it.
Below are the seven most bullied high-profile Nigerians and celebrities (the ranking is in no particular order):
It is no news how famous Wizkid is both in Nigeria and outside Nigeria, however, with this popularity comes a lot of hatred from rival fans.
These rival fans are known to always cyberbully Wizkid on social media. The social media app in which Wizkid is mostly cyberbullied is Twitter.
Most times, whenever Wizkid posts on Twitter, rival fans will troop under Wizkid's comment section, trolling and insulting the superstar.
Below are screenshots from these moments:
Burna Boy has always been popular among Nigerians since he started his music career.
The star has improved a lot in his music career, getting international recognition and winning several awards.
The unfortunate thing is that since Burna Boy got more famous, he has also gotten more rivals and supposed haters.
These rivals and haters are fans of other musicians who never stop cyberbullying Burna Boy any time the opportunity presents itself.
Popular Nigerian crossdresser Bobrisky is also known to be highly cyberbullied.
He gets bullied online so much that the crossdresser has also developed a defence mechanism that he uses in responding to cyberbullies.
Bobrisky is very popular on the Instagram social media platform and this is where he gets bullied the most because of his feminine dress sense and feminine behaviour.
The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed is also a victim of cyberbullying.
Some Nigerians have taken it upon themselves to always troll and insult him on every social media platform he appears on.
Davido is also a victim of cyberbullying by some Nigerians and rival fans of other musicians and it like all the others, it takes place on social media platforms.
Oftentimes, when the singer tweets on Twitter or posts on Instagram, there will be online bullies waiting to troll and insult him.
However, Davido is also very good at ignoring these cyberbullies and he is always appreciated for ignoring them.
Desmond Eliot used to be loved by Nigerians when he was a Nollywood actor, however, since he joined Nigerian politics, he has earned himself a lot of haters who will do anything to see him sad.
The trolls go under his comment section on all his social media platforms, trolling, insulting him and calling him all sorts of names.
Our number one most bullied high-profile Nigerian is DJ Cuppy, the daughter of the popular Nigerian billionaire.
Below are a few screenshots from social media showing DJ Cuppy being cyberbullied.
