Alex Iwobi returns to social media after AFCON criticisms

Nigerian footballer Alex Iwobi has returned to social media, particularly Instagram, following the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) final game between Nigeria and Cote d’Ivoire.

The Fulham star had deleted all his Instagram posts in response to criticism he faced over his performance during the AFCON final, where Nigeria lost 2-1 to Cote d’Ivoire.

Iwobi became a target of cyberbullying from some Nigerian fans, prompting him to remove all content from his Instagram account.

However, he received support from teammates, the Nigeria Football Federation, and the Sports Ministry.

Several weeks later, the Super Eagles midfielder returned to the platform with the post “Lately.”

The post featured a snippet of what seemed to be an unreleased rap song.

Iwobi’s return drew comments from fans, with teammates such as William Troost-Ekong, Frank Onyeka, and Kenneth Omeruo expressing their support in the comment section.
