Some social media users were seen debating the net worth of the Nigerian billionaire, Tony Elumelu, as a picture he took with the singer, Ayo Balogun popularly known as “Wizkid”, alongside others, during the just concluded UBA Marketplace that was held in Abuja, surfaced on the internet.
The controversy: The debate started after a social media user shared the picture, and insinuated that if Wizkid was standing on his money in the picture, others, including Elumelu would be like dwarfs beside him.
If Wizkid stands on his money, everybody in this picture will be dwarfs #UBAMarketplace19 pic.twitter.com/JiNnr6yBk1

The post by @queenzuzzette, however, didn’t go down well with some Nigerians, as they took to the cyberspace to debate Elumelu’s wealth.

Elumelu used $100 million to set up his TEF (Giveaway) and someone is comparing Wizkid to him.
You see why it is foolish to argue with some people on SM.

Nairametrics understands that this is not the first time people would be debating Elumelu’s wealth. Some months ago, the billionaire was dragged into a competition with Wizkid, as the duo posed for a picture before the launch of UBA Group in Mali.
