Your favorite celebrities are sounding off.

Nigerian President, Muhammadu Buhari this evening finally addressed the nation amidst all of the protests, killings, and tyranny that has happened since the #EndSars protest begun.

Nigerians everywhere were waiting on bated breath to finally hear from our leader who has been very noticeably quiet throughout this entire ordeal.

Finally, the Nigerian president took the microphone to address the nation and well, let me tell you - the speech we got is not the speech we were expecting. Personally, when 7 o'clock hit, I ran to my television screen to watch exactly what our president would say but I'm not going to lie, after the speech ended, I couldn't believe that that was all of it. I knew I immediately had to run to Twitter to see what it was saying and let me tell you, Twitter does NOT disappoint. I'll let the celebrity reactions speak for themselves.

Meanwhile, if you haven't had the opportunity to watch the full 12 minute speech, here it is:
