Nigerian Influencer Tunde Ednut Sets the Record Straight on Birthday Wishes, Responds to Peter Obi

Birthday Greetings Stir Controversy: Tunde Ednut Rejects Blogger Tag from Peter Obi

Renowned Nigerian influencer Tunde Ednut found himself in the midst of controversy after receiving a birthday greeting from Peter Obi, a presidential contender for the Labour Party in 2023.

Despite celebrating his 38th birthday with grand festivities in various parts of the world, Ednut expressed dissatisfaction with the label assigned to him by the former Anambra State governor.

Acknowledging the Greeting

A few days ago, Tunde Ednut marked his 38th birthday amidst celebrations in Nigeria, Europe, America, and other African nations.

In response to Peter Obi’s birthday post on X account, praising Ednut for promoting emerging Nigerian talents, the influencer thanked the LP flag bearer on Instagram.

Setting the Record Straight

However, Ednut took the opportunity to clarify a recurring misconception about his profession. Despite expressing gratitude for the birthday wishes, he asserted, “Thank you, but sir I am not a blogger sir, I am an entertainer sir.”

This firm stance reiterated Ednut’s identity as an entertainer rather than a blogger.

Not the First Clarification

This incident marks not the first time Tunde Ednut has corrected the perception of his trade.

Despite the acknowledgment of his impact on the Nigerian entertainment scene, Ednut wants to ensure that his role as an entertainer is accurately recognized, distinguishing himself from the blogger label assigned by some.

Controversy Amidst Appreciation

While Peter Obi’s birthday message was intended as an appreciation for Ednut’s influence in the entertainment industry, the distinction between blogger and entertainer became a point of contention.

The incident highlights the importance for public figures to accurately represent individuals within the creative sphere and recognize their specific contributions.
