Popular Nigerian social commentator, Reno Omokri has seemingly downplayed the severity of the ongoing crisis between Russia and Ukraine.

According to Reno, Russia-Ukraine conflict should not be called World war 3 yet. He then suggested that a real World War 3 would happen if all the first-born sons underwent a DNA test.

Reno Omokri wrote ;

I just laugh at Nigerians that are calling this Russia-Ukraine conflict World War 3.

If you really want to see the real World War 3, let every first born child of all Nigerian marriages be DNA tested.

The result of the DNA tests will result in the World War 3 that Nigerians are talking about.

But seriously, as Black Africans, let us learn to put things into proper perspective. Not into CNN perspective. Don’t elevate a regional conflict into a global conflict. The Russia-Ukraine war is not a World War. The Ethiopia-Tigray war, which has killed 150,000 people, is more deserving of Africa’s focus!
