It all started when Campbell who is in Lagos for Arise Fashion Week tweeted;
Was a pleasure to be invited by his Excellency, President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari to the private launch of Eko Atlantic.
The presidency however refuted the claim adding that they only met at the event.
This however didn’t go down well with Nigerians as they took to Twitter to air their opinions about it.
See reactions below
Naomi Campbell was tweeting ‘invited by President’ for her American audience but oversabi Nigerians have instead swallowed it into their politics. Madam has now deleted the tweet. She is $60m fine anyway!

Leave Naomi Campbell alone, she is not the cause of Nigeria’s problem.

Who‘s lying between @NaomiCampbell and President Buhari? She says Buhari invited her to the opening of the Eko Atlantic City, he says is not true. Why would she lie? Well, one thing we know is that Naomi Campbell has never lied about receiving an award that turned out to be fake!

Naomi Campbell is suddenly a prostitute because she took a picture with a man most of you hate?
What is painful is that some women are following these unfortunate men to spread this olosho narrative.
God help you all

Why are Nigerians so salty?
Naomi Campbell is here for Arise Fashion Week. You don’t know why she’s here, you won’t research and you’re saying she’s here to meet sugar daddy.
What’s the matter with you?
Ignorance can kill oh. It’s not bliss everytime.

Naomi Campbell laundered BLOOD DIAMONDS in Liberia where our soldiers died. Today, the APC led government in Lagos and Federal rolls out the red carpet for her.

Naomi Campbell met Nelson Mandela more than once. He hugged her, called her his “honorary granddaughter”. She visits Nigeria for a fashion festival and meets President @MBuhari, and some of you animals are slandering her.

What is Naomi Campbell doing in Lagos? I hope she’s on a private trip and not invited by the Lagos State Government.
