Twitter suspends Medikal’s account for impersonating Prez. Akufo-Addo
Ghanaian rapper, Medikal’s Twitter account has been suspended.
This follows a tweet by the CEO of Twitter, Elon Musk that “any Twitter handle engaging in impersonation without clearly specifying ‘parody’ will be permanently suspended.”
Subsequently, Medikal replaced his profile photo with the photograph of President Nana Akufo Addo.
He also changed his username to ‘Mr.President’ and failed to state that it is a parody account and not affiliated with the Ghanaian president.
This was followed by a swift block and suspension of the said account.
Our checks confirm that Medikal’s Twitter account has been suspended.
However, we cannot tell if the suspension is permanent or not.
But Elon Musk noted that any culprit account will be permanently suspended.
Samuel Frimpong better known as Medikal, becomes the first Ghanaian verified user to suffer such a big blow.
We’re yet to know if the rapper will be pardoned and recover his account with over 320,000 followers back.
