Despite 'snubs' Abeiku Santana during handshakes

Abeiku Santana happened to be among the many who trooped to Despite's car when arrived and had wanted to shake his boss' hand.

But the businessman did not respond as the broadcaster extended his hand to be shaken. He rather chose to hug and shake the hands of Ofori Sarpong and others around.

Though it looked like an unpleasant situation, Santana took it in his stride and continued to sing the happy birthday song even when almost everybody had stopped.

Are we all pretending ~we didn’t see Abeiku’s handshake mistakenly Daddy..?? Ohhhh…3ny3 fine kraaa..u people r bad..dodo..!!

Abeiku should know that Despite is not his mate, you’re just his worker who happens to be close to him. He should’ve rather bowed a bit to greet him not expecting to shake his hands. When Wizkid, Burna boy and Davido thems meet some of the richest people in Nigeria, they’ll even lie on the floor for them… That’s not being a fOOl but showing respect and appreciation for the meet up.. If Abeiku doesn’t learn this, he will forever be disgraced. Once again, Despite is not his mate, he rush too much.
