When music critic, Editor of Pulse.NG and co-host of the hugely popular Loose Talk podcast – Osagie Alonge called out Skales for seemingly copying Olamide in his new music video, he must have thought people will join in trolling the young crooner.
Must you shoot a street video cos Olamide just did? Must you wear a waist purse just because Olamide just did? pic.twitter.com/Glor5KzImo
But for the first time ever, rather than mock him, people came to the defense of the artiste who is usually the butt of many online jokes.
This is a testament to how Nigerians value resilience and hardwork – features no one can argue Skales embodies. It is really really beautiful to watch Nigerians defend him for a change, and starting with his response, we have curated some of the best tweets.
@OsaGz U just fucked with the wrong person make I no run into you ….. I go reconstruct that ur ugly krokro monkey looking face …hater
Shine on Skales, you are indeed the Never-Say-Never guy!!
#Skales' parents did a great done building up his self esteem & confidence. His best decision was never allowing the bile & slander from internet trolls get to him. He's doing so well for himself. He's one of the most travelled African Artists this year with gigs around the world
The fact that Osagie yabbed Skales and people didn't laugh shows you how far Skales has come….The guy dey try!
Osagie thought people would support him and troll Skales again. Not this time fam. Not this time. Nigerians RESPECTS HARDWORK!!!
Shake Body by Skales has over 15 million views on YouTube. Skales has also collaborated with Nicki Minaj, Major Lazer, PJ Morton (Maroon 5) – Run Up AfroSmash, PartyNextDoor and more. He is the 1st African Artist to perform at Reggae Beachfest. Hard work pays off. Don't give up.
Skales is stronger than u think. Dude survived trolls on Twitter NG for years and still thrived. Osagz chose to choke on the wrong bone.
Osagie missed the part where Skales wore clothing in his video because Olamide wore clothes too
Osagz would have won that arguement in 2012, but the whole town wants Skales to win in 2017, they won't have that
Skales is winning now despite all the shit life threw at him.
Can't help but like the guy.
Don’t think anyone in his/her right senses will be dragging Skales rn, Man has done good for himself thus far.
Osage’s critique will make people view skales video more…what a blessing in disguise ?? pic.twitter.com/M5VEPAhH9E
I cant hate on Skales. From the days of “skales never still blow” that guy has been relevant. I respect his hustle. Hardworking guy!
Osaqz claim to know everything but doesn't know this is a trending bag, even international artists are rocking it, leave Skales alone pic.twitter.com/fAfcEk7D1W
Skales = self esteem x confidence ???? best way to survive 9ja Twitter!
Skales is very confident and strong willed .I respect that .I mean ,look at how he’s been bullied over the years .
So lovely how the TL today defended skales for once
Skales is a very easy target for criticism. And it's usually unfair criticism.
Hard work pays @youngskales. More blessing and thanks for those words today ??
