They have been on the case of the Benue State indigene’s since February this year, when he debuted with a new character, declaring himself Nigerian royalty, and began to speak with a Nigerian accent in his promos in order to "embrace who he really is" and began coming to the ring with a spear in Nigerian colours.
Most of the fans have been trolling him since then, and didn't change their minds even after the 33 years old defeated Big E at Wrestlemania 37 to win the Intercontinental Championship earlier this month.
The resident of Orlando, Florida, United States and former United States Champion, defeated Kevin Owen at Friday night’s Smackdown, with the help of Commander Azeez, and took to his Instagram page on Saturday to celebrate the feat in a statement, in which he fired back at his hatters.

dozer_and_his_dad stated: “ Don’t hate you at all…..just that ridiculous accent.”
