Reactions Trail Buhari’s Countenance At Paystack Co-founder’s, Ezra, Outfit
Nigeria’s president awarded honors to Nigerians who have distinguished themselves on Tuesday, October 11, 2022.
Among the recipients was Ezra Olubi, the cofounder of Paystack, an international payments platform.
However, it appears Buhari was not prepared for Olubi’s eccentric sense of style, as a video capturing the moment Olubi received the award has since gone viral. In the video, Buhari is seen in utter dismay at Olubi’s look which also included a dark lip stain.
See the video:
This has sparked reactions from social media users, See what they said below:
People are not worried that a failed Minister of Education is getting a national award, they are worried that Paystack Ezra Olubi “didn’t dress to impress their daddy” and Teni didn’t dobalè for emperor Buhari.
I don taya for una. I swear

At least when next Ezra posts a picture no one will ask him if he can dress like that to meet important people. He’s been there and done that in full view.

banter aside, i’m super proud of ezra for always staying true to himself in every situation.
he knew the kind of environment he’d be walking into and he still showed up looking fly af with his nails done and his signature lipstick.
a showstopper and my personal fave ????❤️

Buhari thought he was a bad boy until he saw Ezra, a badder boy.

If PMB knew Ezra before yesterday, he would possibly withdraw the award ???????????? https://t.co/tFc582AAC5

Buhari probably thought Ezra had pink lips but on closer inspection, he realized he was staring Mac Ruby Woo in the face ????

Buhari didn't look at Ezra with disdain, he was just intrigued. This is for all of my androgynous and Feminine brothers- stop paying attention to little people, work to show thy self approved, the people who matter will adjust, and those that don't, will open space ❤️❤️????

If Bubu was that shocked seeing Ezra in that conservative number, what would the outcome be he saw him in his full glory? ????????????

I really do not understand opinions like this.
Ezra has always dressed that way.
So all of a sudden he should dress another way for Mr President?
He became all he is today while dressing that way. It's not in anyone's place to dictate anything for him at this point . https://t.co/iPFG8VQsFe
