It’s been a topsy-turvy turn of events in recent times for Nigerian Musician, Instagram celebrity and social media influencer, Tunde Ednut, who has gotten two of his Instagram accounts (@tundeednut and @kingtundeednut), each having over a million followers suspended twice, all in a space of one month.
Mr Ednut had his first account suspended sometime in December due to violations of the Instagram community guidelines.
Prior to the first suspension, there had been a spat with Rapper, Speed Darlington, when Tunde Ednut had claimed to be the reason for the rapper’s rise to prominence in the music scene, which led to the rapper making a rather scathing video where he cursed out Mr Ednut.
After a futile campaign by industry colleagues to get Mr Ednut’s @tundeednut instagram account back, the influencer resorted to opening a new Instagram account @kingtundeednut.This was warmly welcomed by the likes of Don Jazzy, Simi and a host of others.
He went forward to celebrate 1 million followers on the new account by gifting One million naira to his followers.
This Joy was, however, short-lived as the new account was suspended on the the 13th of January 2021 for possible violations of Instagram community guidelines.
Mr Ednut has been known to have had episodes with a couple of individuals who have been offended by his posts about them on his account.
An account could get suspended on Instagram for one or more of these reasons:
- Bullying, Hate Speech and Abuse
- Illegal content
- Appropriate imagery
- Self injury
- Graphic violence
- Intellectual Property
Here are some reactions to the recent suspension:
