Social media users have warned singer cum blogger, Tunde Ednut, to stop messing with singer and Instaram sensation, Speed Darlington after the latter posted a rant, warning the former to stop posting his content.
Darlington, mostly addressed as “Akpi”, went on a lengthy rant, cursing Tunde and promising to get him deported the U.S where they are both based, if the latter continued to post his videos.
Tunde had triggered Darlington’s vitriolic qreaction by claiming he made the instagram 4sensation popular.
However, social media users were quick to point out that Darlington is the son of revered singer and traditionalist, late Chief Pericoma Mezuo Okoye and singer, Theresa Onuorah.
Speedy had threatened to “give a hungry babalawo the sum of N20,000 to tie Tunde’s destiny and get him deported from the US”.
According to Twitter users, Speedy’s parents are “notoriously fetish and feared” in Igbo land.

@Cliqik tweeted: “Speed Darlington is the son of Pericoma:
Arusi Makaja 1 of Arondizuogu, Arusi Ndizuogu
Lion of Africa, Okala-mmuo, Okala-mmadu, Oje-na mmuo, Oke-arusi izuogu na iheme. As a matter of fact, Speedy should be a chief priest now by right, so Tunde Ednut tread carefully with this guy.”
@cheee_chiu tweeted: “I just asked my mum if she knows pericoma and she screamed, the first thing that came out of her mouth is “that juju man”, he did music and all but underneath,he did strong juju. Wow and that’s speedy’s father. A well respected man in okigwe, Imo state”
@cruzn_cruze tweeted: “Man’s a big masquerade. Ask bout his encounter with touts at upper iweka.”
@cheubeatz tweeted: “Never was it mentioned, history would have had it on record at least, Cause Theresa onuora as at her time was respected, i never heard that her path and that of Pericoma crossed, not to talk of resulting to a child birth, if that happened the pikin for be Demigod na!!”
@sabilogy tweeted: “Speedy Darlington is the offspring of two spiritual world powers. Many know Pericoma Okoye. But only the very ‘deep ones’ know Theresa Onuorah. Tunde Ednut might just push this man into his statutory calling. It won’t be funny. #WWIII is enough for now.”
