The current twitter war between Kenyans and Nigerians may have been triggered by controversial journalist Kemi Omololu-Olunloyo daughter of former Oyo State Governor Victor Olunloyo. On 25 July Olunloyo took to her twitter handle to announce that she would not attend a media summit in Nairobi for safety reasons. Many people from both Countries have joined the conversation, posting ridiculous and hilarious tweets, and trading insults that attack each nation’s weaknesses and highlight the strengths.


Some of the tweets pit some Kenya celebrities in music, film and sports against Nigeria’s celebrities and throw the retweet-like challenge. And some insults are just too excessive that one wonders why Twitter has allowed the gladiators to run their tweets without moderation or calling a ceasefire.
