Wizkid made the comment on his twitter handle on Monday after making a post condemning police brutality in the two countries.
His first post on Saturday reads:“Police is kill black Americans and Nigerian police kill Nigerians. No man can sort this matter. God save us.”
He then went on to state that the Nigeria’s President and his United States counterpart are the same but for the consistent use of twitter by one (a reference to Donald Trump who constantly makes use of the social media platform).
“Buhari and Trump are same person. Lol. The one different between them is that one knows how to use Twitter than the other. Clueless!,” Wizkid wrote in a mixture of Pidgin and English.”

The United States have witnessed widespread protests after the killing of an unarmed black man by some police officers in Minneapolis with protesters demanding justice.
Some of the Protests have become violent with the US president, Donald Trump, reportedly taken to an underground bunker in the white house after protesters gathered in front of the building.
Nigerians have also called out the Police over the killing of a 16-year-old girl by Police officers in Lagos state.
Odunews.com reports that the Police officers allegedly shot the young girl, Tina, while enforcing the night time curfew imposed on the state by the Federal Government to curb the spread of COVID-19.
Tina’s death has sparked widespread criticisms and two police officers involved in the killings have been arrested.
