Nollywood actor cum politician Desmond Elliott, is currently the number trending on Nigerian Twitter.
This happened after social media users started comparing Desmond with Ugandan singer and presidential candidate, Bobi Wine.
38 year-old Uganda presidential candidate is currently battling to unseat the incumbernt President of the country, Yoweri Museveni, who has been in office since 1986.
Many social media users are supporting and appreciating Bobi’s attempt to take over the leadership of the country.
Meanwhile some Nigerians attempted to compare Bobi and Desmond Elliott who are young politicians. The comparison erupted to serious debate with many slamming those who compared Bono to Desmond.
Honestly, Bobi Wine and Desmond Elliot should not trend on the same day.
While one is creating a pathway for the youths in his country, the other joined the bandwagon of some clueless leaders to make joke of the youths in his country. pic.twitter.com/JK3YLVzpEf

It is a huge disrespect to Bobi Wine for him to be compared to Desmond Elliot. Bobi wine has served his country to the very best making him a patriot while Desmond Elliot just wants to commission toilets and behave no less than an idiot! pic.twitter.com/BwzTW8qbys
