Renowned Nigerian music director TG Omori has been facing criticism for his response to Bola Tinubu’s victory in the 2023 presidential election.
TG Omori recently reacted to the news of the candidate of the All Progressives Congress who emerged victorious in the 2023 presidential election.
On his Twitter page, the cinematographer suggested that Nigerians should accept the status quo and adapt to the realities of politics, saying, “The game is the game”, he wrote.
However, his opinions have not been well received by many, who have taken jabs at him.
One Twitter user pointed out that it is easy to view politics as a game until someone close to him is affected, to which TG Omori replied, “The game is the game, and all of you are in tears. It’s the same sympathy and st#pid emotions that have put all of us here! Play the game or stand outside and cry for fair play. Wear your kits and jump into the field, idiot.

TG Omori’s opinion
The backlash continued, with TG Omori even expressing a contradictory opinion on democracy itself.
He stated, “I don’t even believe in democracy. Africa, in general, should never have been amalgamated by force in the first place. We should live as kingdoms and tribes, n0t countries and states, because you all d0n’t even like y0urselves.”
TG Omori went on to suggest that slavery still exists in Africa, albeit in a different form, saying, “Chains were taken off your hands/feet and placed in your head. The slave master never changed his ways; he just changed his methods. Search your soul, and you will understand the problems are older than your fathers. Freedom is still on the line; the war isn’t won.”
TG Omori’s opinions have sparked controversy and disapproval from many. His views on politics and dem0cracy in Africa have been cr#ticised, particularly for his suggestion that Africans should not live as states and countries but as tribes and kingd0ms. His stance on freedom and slavery in Africa has also been met with backlash.
