Tunde Ednut, the Instagram celebrity, has responded to the birthday message from Peter Obi.
The social media influencer turned 38 on Saturday, January 20.
Obi, who was the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP) in the 2023 election, took to social media to celebrate Ednut on his birthday.
The former governor of Anambra state described Ednut as an “entertainment blogger and global internet influencer.
The politician also acknowledged the IG celebrity’s influence in bringing emerging comedians and musicians into the spotlight.
I extend my heartfelt birthday wishes to the remarkable Nigerian entertainment blogger and global internet influencer, Tunde Olaoluwa Adekunle, widely known as Tunde Ednut, as he celebrates his 38th birthday, he wrote.
Despite his relatively young age, he has leveraged his internet expertise and influence to propel numerous emerging Nigerian comedians, musicians, and other creative artists into the spotlight.
This has significantly expanded Nigeria’s creative output, which serves as a crucial source of foreign exchange for our country.
Your impact, contributions, and popularity are widely recognized and cherished by Nigerians worldwide, transcending ethnic, religious, and geographical boundaries.
I join other men of goodwill in extending warm birthday wishes and hoping for many more decades of dedicated service to our nation and humanity.
But reacting to Obi’s birthday message in an Instagram post, Ednut averred that “I am an entertainer and not a blogger.
The social media influencer said he is honoured to have received a birthday message from the former governor.
This is huge for me, wow I am very honoured sir. Thank you, but sir I am not a blogger sir, I am an entertainer sir, he said.
Ednut started his career with music. He released tracks like ‘Jingle Bell’ and ‘Catching A Cold’ but left the music scene to focus on blogging.
Ednut is acclaimed to be one of the most popular social media influencers in the country.
