Twitter, the microblogging platform, has honoured Davido, Wizkid, Burna Boy, and Olamide, with the GOAT emoji.


The acronym G.O.A.T. praises not just exceptional athletes but also successful musicians and other public figures.

It represents the phrase “Greatest Of All Time”. It is often pictorially represented with the emoji or image of a literal goat, with horns sticking out prominently.

On Tuesday, Twitter hashtags on the names of some top Nigerian artistes started displaying the GOAT emoji.


Among them are Wizkid, Davido, Burna Boy, Olamide, and the reality TV stars including Laycon, Erica, and Maria.

The symbol appears when these celebrities trend or when their names are searched with a hashtag symbol.

Twitter also honoured other global celebrities like Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo with the emoji.


Wizkid has had a stellar run over the past couple of months with sold-out concerts and chart-topping songs.

On his part, Burna Boy set a record in 2021 after his ‘Twice As Tall’ album won a Grammy award.

Olamide is set for what he said might be his last album after consistently putting out award-winning projects between 2011 and 2021.

Davido has also made a name for himself in the entertainment landscape, pulling off big collaborations and achieving four critically acclaimed bodies of work.
