American social networking service, Twitter, has honored some Nigerian celebrities with customized goat emoji.
The celebrities are Wizkid, Davido, Burna Boy, Olamide, BBNaija winner Laycon, and ex-BBNaija housemate Maria. The goat symbol appears when these celebrities are trending on Twitter or when their names are searched with a hashtag symbol.
G.O.A.T is an acronym for ‘Greatest Of All Time,’ which is commonly used in sports when referring to players who are widely considered the most talented. The microblogging platform also honored other global celebrities like Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo with the same emoji.
The development has, however, generated controversies as Wizkid fans have now accused Davido of paying Twitter to get the honor, owing to the fact that Wizkid was the first Nigerian celebrity to be so honored. Some other fans said Twitter was biased to have limited the honor to just a few celebrities.
