Elon Musk acquired Twitter, October 2022

Twitter, a microblogging platform, has removed the Legacy verification check from well-known Nigerian musicians.

The Nigerian singers Burna Boy, Davido, Wizkid, and Peter Okoye had their verification badges taken from the microblogging platform on Thursday.

Recall that Elon Musk, the owner of the blogging platform, had hinted at plans to commercialize verification tick in a tweet from March that included links to join the premium service.

He said, ”We will begin winding down our legacy verified program and removing legacy verified checkmarks on the 1st of April. To keep your blue checkmark, individuals can sign up for Twitter Blue.”

Announcing the final date for the free Blue badge removal on his verified Twitter handle, Elon Musk wrote: “Final date for removing legacy Blue checks is 4/20.”


The removal of the Legacy Blue Tick of the Nigerian superstars may be connected to the non-payment of their verification subscription fee announced by Musk.

Reacting to his Blue Tick removal, in a tweet on Friday, Peter Okoye said, ”Elon Musk is a businessman period.”
