The public believes that his tweet was directed at Naira Marley.
Former Governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai, on Sunday, posted a cryptic message on social media weeks after his ministerial nomination was not confirmed by the Senate.
In a post shared on his X account, the ex-governor dropped lyrics of ‘Who The Cap Fit’ by the late Jamaican singer, Bob Marley. The former governor stated
“Bob Marley of blessed memory is one of most talented musicians of all time. My love for reggae music is connected with his songs and music.”
The ex-governor thereafter posted lyrics of the song:
“Man to man is so unjust, children
“Ya don’t know who to trust
“Your worst enemy could be your best friend
“And your best friend, your worse enemy
“Some will eat and drink with you
“(Some will eat and drink with you)
“Then behind them su-su ‘pon you
“Then behind them su-su ‘pon you)
“Only your friend know your secrets
“So only he could reveal it
“And who the cap fit, let them wear it!
“Who the cap fit, let them wear it!”
El-Rufai was one of the 48 ministerial nominees of President Bola Tinubu sent to the Senate for confirmation. The Senate approved and confirmed the ministerial nominations of 45 appointees of the President but withheld the confirmation of El-Rufai and two others over “security clearance”.
American singer Swae Lee received heavy critisms on Twitter following his tweet about Amapiano.
Ben & Jerry’s went full woke on the Fourth of July by posting an anti-American tweet in which it claimed that “the U.S. exists on stolen land.” This has since come back to bite the ice cream company in a big way, as a boycott has been launched resulting in its parent company Unilever losing a whopping $2.6 billion.
This 4th of July, it’s high time we recognize that the US exists on stolen Indigenous land and commit to returning it. Learn more and take action now: https://t.co/45smaBmORH pic.twitter.com/a6qp7LXUAE

It all started on Tuesday, when Ben & Jerry used its official twitter account to blast the U.S. for existing “on stolen land.”
“This 4th of July, it’s high time we recognize that the US exists on stolen Indigenous land and commit to returning it,” Ben & Jerry’s wrote alongside a link to a post about this. “The faces on Mount Rushmore are the faces of men who actively worked to destroy Indigenous cultures and ways of life, to deny Indigenous people their basic rights.”
“Ah, the Fourth of July. Who doesn’t love a good parade, some tasty barbecue, and a stirring fireworks display?” the company wrote in the post. “The only problem with all that, though, is that it can distract from an essential truth about this nation’s birth: The US was founded on stolen Indigenous land.”
Daily Mail reported that Unilever, which has owned Ben & Jerry’s since 2000, has since lost a staggering $2.6 billion in market capital. Shares for the company were down .5 percent on Wednesday and down 1 percent at the start of trading on Thursday, and at the time of this writing, the market capital for the company is down to $131 billion from $133.5 billion.
Happening Now: Ben and Jerry’s parent company Unilever has lost $2.5 billion in market cap and continues to drop.

South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem (R) also spoke out to defend Mount Rushmore from Ben & Jerry’s attack on it.
“I’m not going to listen to a bunch of liberal Vermont businessmen who think they know everything about this country and haven’t studied our history,” Noem told Fox News. “Right now, Mount Rushmore is the greatest symbol of our freedom and history of the United States of America.”
“We can learn from the men on that mountain,” she continued. “We can do better. But, boy, they led us through some challenging times. And I think Americans in this country need some inspiration, and we can gain it from a monument like that. We should be proud of America and knock off what Ben & Jerry’s is doing. They don’t have any idea what they’re doing.”
Check out Noem’s full comments on this in the video below.
This is far from the first time that Ben & Jerry’s has gone woke. Last month, the company announced that it would no longer be advertising on Twitter due to what it described as “hate speech” on the platform since it was taken over by Elon Musk. Ben & Jerry’s said in a post that it had watched the changes Musk brought to Twitter since he bought it last fall “with great concern,” adding that “hate speech is up dramatically while content moderation has become all but non-existent.”
Back in 2021, Ben & Jerry’s was hit with backlash after announcing that it would no longer sell its ice cream in Israel’s “Occupied Palestinian Territory,” referring to the West Bank and Gaza Strip.
Did everyone forget .. Ben and Jerry’s is and always will be woke. Its not new. Stop buying the products. pic.twitter.com/TbA4qpY2pW

This also comes after Bud Light lost over $27 billion in the wake of teaming up with the transgender influencer Dylan Mulvaney for a woke ad campaign.
In the end, both Ben & Jerry’s and Bud Light have learned the hard way that “go woke, go broke” is very real indeed. CEOs of brands everywhere should take notice, because Americans are letting it be known that we are all sick of the woke nonsense!

Manchester United goalkeeper, David de Gea has shared a cryptic ‘yawning’ tweet as he faces exit after Erik ten Hag’s uncertainty over him sparked U-turn on his new contract.
The Spaniard, 32, has made 545 appearances in all competitions for the Red Devils since joining for around £19million in summer 2011.
The Red Devils have been weighing up whether to offer him a new deal given his inconsistency and bumper £350,000-a-week wages.
Manager Erik ten Hag’s uncertainty over keeping him as No 1 sparked the club’s U-turn on his new contract, which expires in just 56 hours at the time of writing – leading to De Gea’s apparent outburst at the situation.
In what seems like a reference to the long-running contract saga, De Gea simply posted a yawning emoji on his Twitter page, suggesting that he is tired of the situation.
Earlier this month, a new contract aimed at reducing De Gea’s £375,000-a-week wage had been agreed between the player and the club, but Ten Hag’s uncertainty over keeping his No 1 had put the deal in jeopardy.
Reports emerged on Tuesday claiming that De Gea had signed the new contract before United backed out and then tabled an even lower offer.
The Guinness World Record has confirmed that the tweet it made some days ago, announcing Nigerian Chef, Hilda Baci as the new record holder for the longest cooking marathon is now its best-performing tweet of all time, with nearly 25 million news feeds reach.
The Guinness World Record made the disclosure on its official Twitter page on Thursday afternoon, June 15.
Guinness World Record wrote: “Yeah, so this is our best-performing tweet of all time, with nearly 25 million new feeds reached.”
Recall that the Guinness World Record on Tuesday, June 13, officially confirmed Miss Hilda Baci, as the new record holder for the longest cooking marathon, after overtaking an Indian chef Lata Tondon’s 87 hours, 45 minutes cooking marathon in 2023. Hilda Baci cooked for 93 hours and 11 minutes, according to GWR.
Guinness World Records were left speechless after the tweet post confirming Hilda Baci as the new world record holder for longest cooking marathon feat got an engagement reach of over twenty five million.
Recall, the organization on Tuesday wrote via its official Twitter account: “After reviewing all the footage, we’re delighted to announce that Hilda Baci is the new record holder for the longest cooking marathon (individual).”
According to GWR, Baci now holds the record for the longest cooking marathon by an individual with a time of 93 hours and 11 minutes.
Following the confirmation from the awarding body, Nigerians all over the world celebrated the Akwa Ibom born chef, by engaging with the post and sharing the good news.
Speaking about the news reach of Hilda’s award confirmation video, GWR on Thursday said that the post was their best performing tweet of all time.
The awarding body wrote: “yeah, so this is our best performing tweet of all time with nearly 25 million news feeds reached”
Naija News recalls Hilda attempted to set a record of 100 hours, however, almost seven hours were deducted from her final total because she mistakenly took extra minutes for one of her rest breaks early on in the attempt.
The 26-year-old Akwa-Ibom-born chef began cooking on Thursday 11 May and continued through to Monday 15 May, 2023 cooking over 100 pots of food.

Comedian Seyi Law has reacted to Big Brother Naija star, Pere Egbi’s tweet on the alleged hatred shown towards against Igbo people in Nigeria.
Pere had stated that the ‘hate against Igbos’ is real and he has heard someone in politics say that “an Igbo person can never rule Nigeria”.
Reacting to Pere’s tweet, Seyi Law claimed that he has been asking same questions and has gotten answers to it. According to the comedian, some Igbos also propagate hate and don’t have respect for hierarchy or authority.
“Pere, I hope we will be discerning enough and wise not to push a narrative of war because of anger. I know that many have called me a tribal bigot for supporting Tinubu, omo ale for not supporting GRV and many more for their own reasons. I have dared them several times to prove all these, but they have failed, and I have concluded that some Nigerians always project their beliefs on others for self-satisfaction.
“While some of your statements might not be entirely wrong, I ask you, in all honesty, that if you have researched and probed deeper, why do some people make such statements? People will come come for me definitely, and this is one of the mistakes they keep making. Instead of critically analysing a situation, they believe their angers will change a situation that calls for dialogue.
“What are some of the reasons for this notion you expressed? I have asked questions about this several times, and I have also witnessed some of the answers to the notion. While this is painful to discuss, we must come to the table someday.
“Firstly, it is the average Igbo man’s individualistic nature. Many people of the other tribes have had dealings with some Igbos that have resulted in bad businesses and cheating. Does this justify the notion for some, yes, and to others, maybe. Politics involves the collective and an individualistic mindset can not drive it to success.
“Secondly, some Igbos don’t have respect for hierarchy or authority, even amongst themselves. They believe that my money places me on equal pedestal with elders as long as I am not begging them for anything. This has always put them in conflict with the culture of other tribes.
“Thirdly, some igbos express HATE and a sense of superiority over other tribes without decorum. While many may be quiet about expressing that anger about this, they wait for politics to wield their power. The continuous belief that we do it better and denigrating others from other tribes doing it with never make the Igbos attractive in politics.
“Political antecedents have also contributed to this notion, you stated. From Azikiwe to Aguyi Ironsi, bad political moves have put a lot of resentment in the wheels of the Igbos political aspirations. Dr. Soludo has stated that the mob actions of Peter Obi’s supporters will set Igbos back politically, and this was collaborated by Dr. Nnamani, but instead of heeding a wise counsel, these men were incinerated.
“There are many more to talk about, but I will stop here to receive my whips. While constantly maintained that we must, as a matter of urgency, have a national peace conference to discuss critical issues and resolutions on the Biafra war, national cohesion, political integration, and more, the Igbos must also play their part to foster unity. However, this justified your anger. Sometimes, we must learn to sit back, reason deeply, and ask the why?. Thanks”
Jurgen Klopp insists he has no worries about Mo Salah’s Liverpool future, after the forward made publicly clear his frustration at the Reds’ failure to qualify for next season’s Champions League.
As they prepare for their final game of campaign away to Southampton, Liverpool know they will finish – meaning Europa League football in 2023/24 for Klopp, Salah and co.
And, based on his remarks following Manchester United‘s 4-1 win over Chelsea on Thursday night – the result which mathematically ended Liverpool’s already faint top-four hopes – Salah isn’t exactly enthused by the prospect of playing in Europe’s second-tier competition next term, tweeting that making the Champions League was the “bare minimum” for the Reds.
I’m totally devastated. There’s absolutely no excuse for this. We had everything we needed to make it to next year’s Champions League and we failed. We are Liverpool and qualifying to the competition is the bare minimum. I am sorry but it’s too soon for an uplifting or optimistic… pic.twitter.com/qZmA9WsueMMay 25, 2023
Salah’s somewhat scathing assessment might have sparked some panic ahead of the summer transfer window, but Klopp isn’t remotely concerned about potentially losing one of his star men. He said: “No worries, no. I only heard what he said, but I couldn’t read anything that could lead in that direction.
“Obviously, Mo loves being here and Mo was part of it. He said apologies for what ‘we’ did – not apologies for ‘what the other guys did, but I had to go with them’. It is all fine.
“If ever a player would come to me and said, ‘oh, we didn’t qualify for the Champions League, I have to leave’, I would drive him to the other club myself.
“I would take the key [and say] ‘come in the car, where do you want to go, I drive you’.”
Salah extended his Liverpool contract just under a year ago, becoming the highest-paid player in the club’s history.
And, despite an underwhelming season for the team as a whole, the 30-year-old has continued to bang the goals in this term.
For the third straight campaign, Salah has reached the 30-goal mark in all competitions – and is now one away from leapfrogging Steven Gerrard into fifth place on the Reds’ all-time top scorers list.
