Social media users have descended on some young skit makers who paid a courtesy visit to Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.
The Vice President on Wednesday paid host to the team of young skit practitioners at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
The delegation, which came under the aegis of the Nigeria Skits Industry Awards (NSIA), was led by its promoter, Bimbo Daramola.
Those on the delegation were Maryam Apaokagi popularly known as Taooma; Josh Alfred (Josh2funny); Ayo Ajewole (Woli Agba); Adebamiro Adeyanju (Mr Hyenana) and Adeoye Adeyemi Elesho (Yemi Elesho).
Osinbajo urged skit comedians to use their huge followings on social media to promote issues for the social good and impact.
He also said the Federal Government would continue to create an enabling environment for the growth and development of youths.
Social media users have bashed the skit makers, especially Taooma, Woli Agba and Josh2funny for the visit.
They referred to them as ‘hypocrites’ who would rather collect envelopes that stick to their guns.
They however praised Mr Macaroni for not attending the meeting, describing him as a ‘worthy fighter.’

If you claim to be so angry with them I don’t think you will grant any interview. If you lost a loved one, I don’t think you’ll have the strength to smile with them. Your intentions might be genuine I can’t speak for you but as for the govt I can never trust them. Elections are near and all they need from you guys with a large audience is just what you guys just did. Before the end sars protest, didn’t some youths meet with them?? Did it stop the shooting? Let’s be rational abeg.”
