The Nigerian Twitter has been thrown into a frenzy after sports media personality, Charles Anazodo blasted popular female singer, Tiwa Salvage, for not greeting him.
Apparently, Charles Anazodo isn’t happy with Tiwa Savage for walking past him without saying ‘hello’ to him at the radio station.
“@TiwaSavage was a guest on @THEBEAT999FM earlier today, arrived and walked past @kallyjoe and me, and didn’t have the courtesy to say hello. I guess being a superstar gives you the right to be discourteous,” he tweeted.

Tiwa Savage subsequently responded to his tweet, but she didn’t take it lightly with him.
“First of all, I’m sure you saw me rushing to the studio because I was late for my interview plus I had a hat on, second I’m glad I didn’t say hi because who are you to think you can’t say hi first,” she replied.

These tweets have ignited controversy in the Nigerian Twitter community with people expressing their views. A lot of people think Charles was feeling entitled while for another camp, it was all about the hilarious angle to it.
What happened between Tiwa & Charles just shows how much the Older NG Folks are still entitled to Greeting & see it as Pride when you don't greet. People have plenty things on their mind & might not notice you. We are adults & there are better things to worry about ?♂️

A grown ass man with connecting beards is ranting on Twitter because Tiwa Savage did not ‘greet him’ and his friend.
How does the greeting add value to your personal life my g?

Being a woman is so hard. Imagine having the fame and talent of Tiwa Savage and a moron is standing by the door expecting you to greet him first! So weird. I'm sure if it was a Male celebrity, ma so so baba this, baba that we go dey hear. Sigh

Tiwa Savage was very wrong! She should have stopped and not only greeted but prostrated like she had cerebral malaria and shouldn't stand up until a guy named Chaplinez 70 tells her to. How dare she disrespect a 120 year old TV presenter? https://t.co/vXWVkty3WU

Tiwa Savage is wrong.
She should have knelt down for Charles Anazodo, ask him if he has eaten and if he needed anything. Ask him about his life problem and if he is financially okay.
She’s sorry Uncle Charles

So I stumbled into tiwa savage and Charles Anazodo
Story it's funny that people are taking sides
She stated her reasons but the "Who are you" part is a no no
That's where the disrespect comes in
Charles bringing it to twitter its a No no too

Charles Anazodo came to twitter & drag tiwa savage for not greeting him first just because Charles is a journalist celebrity.
You can’t eat Crocker fish without removing the bones ?else it will chock you,Respect is reciprocal.
Tiwa took him to his level by asking who he was.

I think the point he's to make is when you visit a place, it's a polite thing to start greeting people you find there, even if they don't greet you, greet them cos you're the visitor. It's basic common sense.
Besides that Charles Anazodo, World renowned Sports Journalist. https://t.co/x5Ri7iNxIC

The day came
Charles Anazodo positioned himself
Tiwa Savage rushed in
She didn't say hi
Charles couldn't come down from his high horse to say hi – fine. Should have ended there.
Charles brought it here
Hoping to score highpoints?
But it's all a low.
Another adult on a low ?

Charles Anazodo has a point! Courtesy demands that you greet people you meet at a place you visit.
Tiwa Savage has a point! Rushing to interview will make anyone not remember to put on the right clothing accessories talkless of seeing everyone to greet on the road. Let’s talk! pic.twitter.com/Fk4H31iwLj

Charles Anazodo has unfortunately allowed his overinflated ego and a crassly flawed mentality to get the better of him. He has become the “you can’t even greet somebody” ambassador that he has probably criticized others for. You hate to see it.
Disappointed but not surprised.
