Paul O, a billionaire music mogul, has taken a remarkable step to combat online harassment and protect the well-being of popular Nigerian musician Davido by offering a cash reward of N5 million to anyone who can identify a Twitter troll.
The person in question had made a distressing comment that sought to harm the well-known artist.
The incident came to light after the news about Paul O’s reward was shared on Instagram, specifically by the account @gossipmilltv.
The billionaire’s decision to take legal action against the troll and offer a sizable sum of money has piqued interest among the general public and sparked debate regarding the significance of combating abuse online.
Throughout his career, Davido, a prominent figure in the Nigerian music industry, has been the target of online trolls and criticism.
Paul O’s intervention was prompted, however, by a recent tweet that crossed a significant line and contained a vile wish for the artist’s death.
Netizens expressed their support for Paul O’s initiative as word of the reward spread, praising the troll’s actions and stressing the significance of social media accountability.
