Afia Schwar and others criticise Captain Smart over McBrown's welcome
While many people were impressed with the grand welcome given to McBrown, not everyone was pleased about it.
Leading criticisms of the gesture was Afia Schwar, who described Captain Smart and those who wore McBrown t-shirts as people with no strong brands.

But appearing on his morning show on Tuesday, Captain Smart did not mince as he told Afia Schwar and other critics to shut up.
According to Captain Smart, Schwar was pained and was only criticising because she wished to have been in the shoes of McBrown to receive the same treatment.
He noted that he had come a long way with McBrown from their days in Kumasi and feels proud of McBrown's success and thus will hail her anytime.
"I will have McBrown's image drawn at my back as a tattoo...I am not a small presenter and I know my value but I feel proud about all I did to welcome her. We have come a long way from Kumasi. I'll even produce her show to make her comfortable.
"We love you Nana. On the day of your first programme, we will wear new t-shirts in pink to welcome you. I know my sister and so if you don't know her, shut up," he said among others.
