The year 2016 has seen a lot of back-to-back “clap back” episodes since Olamide and Don Jazzy‘s banter at the Headies.

It’s safe to say that this 2016 has been a year where celebrities are learning to speak back when fans step out of line.

Recently OAP Gbemi Olateru-Olagbegi tweeted about how sometimes even celebrities can lose their cool and “snap”. Click here if you missed it.

Here’s a quick recap of how some of them have shut down such talk:


Wale is one person that is very Twitter friendly. He chats with fans and responds to people but he’s also not one to shy away from shutting down insults – especially when it’s about his talented friends, e.g Olamide.

How can we can’t forget Wale’s response to an American fan who insulted Olamide’s sandals at Toolz and Tunde Demuren’s wedding in January?


Toyin Aimakhu

Next on the list is Nollywood Actress, Toyin Aimakhu. She has always been a very private person but recently her personal life was brought on social media and since then she has had to be defending herself to trolls.



There is no doubt that Davido is one of the biggest stars out of Africa but even the big stars have to deal with a certain amount of negativity and criticism. Davido is not one to shy away from answering when he can.

The most recent one came as a reply to Osagie Alonge for berating his HKN crew on his “Facts Only” show:

davido clap back 7

But that’s not the only time Davido has had to defend himself

Davido clap back 2 Davido clap back 4 Davido clap back 5

Kate Henshaw

For Top Nollywood Actress Kate Henshaw, we didn’t have to go too far down her timeline to see know that she takes no prisoners, let alone from a supposed “fan”! Someone tried insulting her for not having a verified twitter account, but trust Kate, she knew just what to say to him:

kATE HENSAHW CLAP BACK kate hensah clap back 2 kate henshaw clap back 3 kate hensah clap back 3

Burna Boy

Burna Boy is another artist that doesn’t take insults lying down. Over time, he has had to call out friends, producers, fellow artists, fans- anyone who isn’t in line with his ideas. See some of his come backs;

Burna Boy clap back 1 Burna Boy clap back 2 Burna Boy clap back 3

Cynthia Morgan

Dancehall act Cynthia Morgan aka Mandrina isn’t on social media to play. Cynthia once made a lady change her Avatar after she replied her troll…

Wizkid makes this list too! Wizkid is quick to defend his friends when twitter trolls try to start up beef.

Halima Abubakar

Actress Halima Abubakar also had to recently harshly reply a fan who crossed the line.


One thing that these celebrities have let us see is that they are human too. They get hurt by words and they have feelings as well so the next time you are on social media, and about to insult a celebrity, go the other route and be nice.

    The only thing I took away from this compilation is how Bella Naija made sure to properly credit their sources. You guys always do that. Thats great. As i write my project I would always remeber that it is good to say I got it here otherwise it is stealing. I also want to pass that message to other bloggers. lol….
    Nice work ethics Bella Naija.

    Actually these guys “have time” for their trolls.
    Not having time would suggest them not bothering to clap back or disturbing themselves with what their trolls say.

    As far as the list goes, they have a lot of time.

      I would have agreed with you…. in my former life. Sometimes, you need to gauge the bullshit and then shut it down so it doesn’t ever rear it’s ugly head again. There are some celebs that we know better than to mess with (Burna, Cynthia morgan) because they will treat your f**kup.
      So darling, sometimes one needs to create a ‘little’ time to make sure shit doesn’t go down your lane ever again.

    Why do people get offended when they are called ‘short’? Is it a crime to be short?
    Come on, its just a use of adjectives and that is really what you are. Embrace it, own it.
    I don’t see ‘heighty’ people wailing over been called ‘tall’

    More clap back saved some,from the hands of negative gossip peddlers,if not new private issues would have been played out to the world to ridicule them,while the gossiper in chief herself eats banana and ground nuts.

  6. Vent more.

    May 17, 2016 at 5:41 am

    Very good they vent also,most of this online trolls can’t take half of what they are giving this guys,that brow takes no nonsense,the latest bouncing lie will be the news of the day by now if not for his known clap backs,with negative news that aunty will say am just doing my job,Kate Henshaw also freed herself,for along time now no exclusive rumor on her head.

    Honestly,i wouldn’t bother replying hate comments. It show how much time they have on their hands.
    I’d rather surf the internet with my time than replying some attention seekers.
