The rapper’s comment comes as a reaction to a video of soldiers in combat camouflage evacuating their luggage out of a flooded shanty.

In a post accompanying the video shared on his Instagram page on Saturday, the rapper said it is unfortunate that soldiers who put their lives at risk to protect others are subjected to such conditions.

He also tackled those who are fond of calling out security officials because of their alleged “shortcomings.”

The music star argued that the actions of some of the security operatives are due to the challenges they face.
