- Mill’s comment elicited mixed reactions from social media users on the platform
American rapper Meek Mill is among social media users who are not entirely impressed with the show of support by some Africans for President Donald Trump.
The rapper recently reacted to a viral video clip that captured a procession of Nigerian citizens who hit the streets singing praises for the US president.
Although the video has been going around on social media, Mill appeared to have come across it after the president posted it on his official Twitter page. In his caption, Trump noted that it was indeed an honour to have a parade led on his behalf in the West African country.

However, while reacting to the president’s tweet, the rap musician described the parade as a result of ‘brainwashing’. See the exchange below:
Mill’s comment attracted different reactions from Nigerians on the social media platform.
One tweep said:
"Why can't Africans make their own decisions without being called brainwashed??? If they love the man let it be!! It’s a democracy right?? Everyone is free to love & support whomever they want!!!"
Another Twitter user who responded to his comment wrote:
"I don’t seem to understand how the poor reasons in Nigeria. They are always the ones in the forefront of unreasonable things, channelling their energy towards things they have no business doing. Where were these people during the end sars/swat protest?"

In a different story about the US president, Briefly.co.za previously reported that actress Georgina Onuoha clamped down on Nigerians at home rooting for Trump’s re-election.
The US-based actress in an Instagram post noted that the president has made life hard for Nigerians in his country and those seeking to cross over. She said the Trump administration has not really been beneficial to Nigerians.
