Producer and elder brother to music sensation P Square, Jude Okoye, has come under fire for posting a photograph of guns on social media photo sharing site, Instagram.
The producer posted the picture with lyrics from an American rapper’s song which captioned, “F*ck with me cos you know I got ’em.”
Linda Ikeji broke the story on her popular blog and within minutes, several readers had commented, condemning Jude Okoye for the act and slamming the propensity of Nigerian celebrities to show off everything.
Some of the comments from Linda Ikeji blog are reproduced below:
“IS GUN AN ACCESSORIES PLS,THESE OUR SO CALLED MONEY MISSED ROAD CELEB,I HAVE NOT SEEN AN INTERNATION CELEB DISPLAYING GUN AS AN ASSET ON SOCIAL MEDIA LIKE THIS SHIT,ARE YOU INTOXICATED BY FAME OR WHAT?IF ANYTHING HAPPEN AFTER THIS NOW ;WAT WOULD YOU SAY”
“Trouble the sleep yanga go wake am. He shud b wise. Tomorrow na if he gets robbed he’ll be wondering y.
Why advertise everything?
“Kayode Olaitan said Where is Nigeria police, where is SSS , where is NIA….u will answer questions soon.. Ordinary music producer, u dey carry gun”
“… And to what end??? What message is he passing on to the younger generation? And we complain the country is getting worse & our children dont have morals! He should respect his age sha … Its just sheer stupidity! *my opinion*”
“This is so immature.i hope he has licenses for them otherwise,alagbon awaits you and you will cough out plenty money before being freed.
The thieves and kidnappers also now known where to shop for supplies.
“In d wrld of showbiz,I guess evrytin is worth showin off!!! Jude weldon.I xpect u 2show off ur snipers list as well.”
“Nigerian police where art thou? No private individual is given licence to own handguns. It took me serious work to licence my hunting gun(pump action) cos that’s what u guys allow with double barrel rifle. This nigger has to explain where and how he came into possession of these dangerous weapons!”
“Bros jude who is after ur life nw in my own vew I don’t think u need dis becos u no d country we re pls I’ll advice u 2 return them 4 security purpose nd still show it on linda blog here so dat they we no dat u return them or s many people we like 2 test u both d one who hv gun nd d one who don’t hv tanks”
“see how illiteracy can worry these money miss road….Does he know these gun are illegal in Nigeria?Permit does not cover small arms…Police should move in immediately.
This attitude of showing off everything including new chewing gum has gone too far…..

Isn’t this the most ridculous act of 2014? So showing off your guns abi na pistols is a way of telling the world that you have arrived? Sometines, having money isn’t enough, having common sense works together with having money to produce a sensible being.”
“Jude is a really stupid misfit to think that he can rub his stupidity in our faces and u Linda must be really short of “news” to think that this is good enough for the public to feast on. How does this crap get young boys and girls off the streets? When did owning guns become an object of pride? When will jude grow up, get some sense (or buy some) and make any form of meaningful impact on the lives of people who are 25 and below? Dumb ass junk head.”
