Popular musician, Oluwafemi Oladapo Oko-Eko also known as Slimcase has been the subject of criticism, over his distasteful comment about the killing of 16-year-old Tina Ezekwe, who was recently shot dead by a police officer at Iyana-Oworo area of Lagos state.

Slimcase in an Instagram post made on  May 30th paid tribute to an African American man, George Floyd, who was unlawfully killed by a White man, Derek Chauvin, by kneeling on the victim’s neck for over 8 minutes.
