Twitter was on fire Friday after sports presenter, Charles Anazodo accused Tiwa Savage of not greeting when she saw him at Beat FM earlier today.
In a tweet that went viral, the Super Sports presenter accused the singer of walking past him without saying hello.
@TiwaSavage was a guest on @THEBEAT999FM earlier today,arrived and walked past @kallyjoe and i, and didn't have the courtesy to say hello. I guess being a superstar gives you the right to be discourteous.

This, however, didn’t go down with Nigerians as they took to Twitter with many criticizing Charles.
See some reactions below
Charles Anazodo feeling entitled to get hello from Tiwa savage first is unnecessary. If Tiwa didn't say hello to Charles, he should say hello to Tiwa or mind his business. Let's stop making life too hard. Anyway I'm an architect, I design & construct buildings, let me work for U.

Greeting is not by force & no one should feel entitled to it.
Charles Anazodo shouldn’t have brought the issue to social media, looks to me like he was seeking attention.
Tiwa Savage was very rude in her response, the “who are you” is uncalled for.

People saying Charles Anazodo has a point because of courtesy are saying rubbish.
This mentality is the reason you hold grudges against some people.
Why didn't call out your boss who met you in a lift for not saying hello? But Tiwa is a celebrity, so she is wrong.

I saw Charles Anazodo in Russia last year; St Petersburg precisely. He passed me and didn’t have the courtesy to say hello (even though I didn’t say hello either). I guess being a superst … hold on. You see how ridiculous I sound right? Right? Good. https://t.co/0IjOEqVhFZ

Tiwa Savage isn't obliged to greet anyone. Greeting isn't a resource or money, it doesn't add anything to you. I don't get why people are so obsessed with it. A person greeting you doesn't even mean they respect or like you, it's merely symbolic. Charles Anazodo should note that.

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

Just a matter of time before Nigerian men took the blanket blame for Charles Anazodo's stupidity. https://t.co/vNChmWrcn4
