Nigerian twitter community are generally known for having no chills when it comes to dragging people most especially celebrities.
Their latest catch is Desmond Elliot they blasted for calling for a ban on foreign content in the Nigerian media space.
The 45-year-old actor turn politician revealed this during a chat with HipTV, in which he urged the federal government to make foreign films/shows difficult to be accessed in the country as a way to uplift local content.
