A storm of reactions by Nigerians has greeted the purported invitation of Michael Ajereh, popularly known as Don Jazzy and Tiwa Savage by the Department of State Service (DSS).
Naija News understands that a report filed by SaharaReporters had said the DSS reportedly invited Nigerian music producer and his former signee Tiwatope Savage, also known as Tiwa Savage, for questioning over alleged political comments against President Muhammadu Buhari-led government.
The report said following the increase in rape cases in Nigeria, Tiwa Savage began a movement known as “WeAreTired” in protest of the situation. The musician through the movement called on the current government to take action to stem the tide of rape in the country.
According to the report, the call by Tiwa Savage for the Buhari’s administration to live up to its responsibilities to Nigerians earned the singer an invitation by the DSS. Together with Don Jazzy, Savage was invited to the DSS office in Lagos two weeks ago during which they were warned to be careful with their posts on the social media.
Reacting to the development in a short video published on the micro-blogging site, Twitter, Don Jazzy asked what the word “quizzes” was as applied in the report published by SaharaReporters.

Like Don Jazzy, Nigerians took to Twitter to air their opinions on the matter.
Naija News captured some of the reactions below…
Calm down Nigerians.
Whatever Don jazzy and Tiwa savage said must have killed thousands of people in Southern Kaduna. The DSS has the best interest of Nigerians in mind. https://t.co/YKhSQ7I4Kq

Don Jazzy should remind them that he and the Mavins performed Dorobucci at the APC rally in Lagos in 2015. That will make them go easy on him. Especially when they remember how Amaechi danced with his broom https://t.co/xR4P39EGYD

I am happy Donjazzy's happened. He was a strong critic of the GEJ govt and promoter of an unrepentant tyrant. Today, he is forming brand influencer.
Like him sip from Buhari's brutality. There is enough to go round. https://t.co/z2GvYE7zbF

You are rejoicing that Don Jazzy was quizzed by DSS for criticising Buhari because he also criticised GEJ. So u have been angry at him for daring to criticise GEJ? Yet you are the first to line up for his giveaways! Your anger does not extend to his money?#StomachInfrastructure

DSS quizzed Don Jazzy and Tiwa over statements about Buhari?
We owe Jonathan an apology as a Nation.

Nothing fear this government pass criticism or protest from influential southern Nigerians. Two seconds, Don Jazzy & Tiwa Savage don visit DSS office. Imagine what will happen if all Nigerian celebrities unite and call these idiots out. They will arrest the entire industry.
