Nigerian comedian, Kenny Blaq has stirred reactions with his recent act at a hotel he visited with a friend on the day for the Inauguration of President Bola Tinubu.
He wanted to lodge in the hotel but when he walked into the reception, he saw that a photo of the immediate past president, Muhammadu Buhari was still hung on the wall.
Tinubu was sworn-in on Monday, 29th of May as president of Nigeria.
Kenny wondered why the hotel still had a photo frame of Buhari instead of Tinubu and changed his mind about booking a room there.
“Na Buhari still be president for here oh, ahn ahn.. we can’t afford it,’ he said while going back out.
The receptionist and another staff in the background begged the content creator, saying that they are changing the portrait.
They asked Kenny Blaq asked to come back and that they are taking it down immediately.

Meanwhile, former Senior Special Assistant to ex-President Muhammadu Buhari, on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu said his administration created 12 million new jobs in agriculture alone.
Shehu made the statement on Channels TV’s ”Sunrise Daily” programme, as he stressed that the administration did well in many sectors including power, security, anti-corruption fight among others.
He said the previous administration spent $5 billion on the purchase of foreign rice, but under Buhari, no money has been budgeted for the same purpose.
The presidential spokesman said; “In agriculture alone, the Rice Farmers Association of Nigeria (RIFAN) is talking about 12 million new jobs, look at what we did in agriculture, this administration inherited just four functional fertilizer processing companies, we have 52 that are working today.
“And this shifted the supplies of fertilizer to these 12 million new rice farmers, today rice farmers alone domestically produce rice. This country has achieved food sufficiency, we have diversified the economy, we are no longer a monocultural economy.
“This country had spent $5 billion before this administration every day to buy foreign rice, today no one US Dollar leaves the Central Bank of Nigeria for foreign rice.
“As his spokesperson, I go to bed, I sleep soundly convinced that nobody, whether from Nigeria or outside the country, can call me to say we have discovered this bank account and your boss has these huge millions. That’s not Buhari; he is well-above scandal and that is how it will end”.
