Naeto C (Naetochukwu chike) who still has his hit records "5 & 6" and "10 over 10" gaining airplay went mad at a twitter fan after the fan tweeted about his 2011 BET cypher performance. The 2011 BET awards was held at Boisfeuillet Jones Atlanta Civic Center, USA, on October 1. It was aired on BET international. The Nigerian Cypher was grazed by artists like Ice Prince, Sauce Kid, M.I, Mode 9 and Naeto C etc. The drama happened on Sunday, 16th October when NaetoC (Naeto chike) first tweetted about his performance at the cypher hoping to receive good comments all through but things didn't go that way after a fan gave him a thumbs down about his performance. Naeto C started off by tweeting, “Wow, I’m trending again today lol, what’s going on?" He first got responses like "BET CYPHER!! YOU TRY SIR!! and “You killed Cypher Datz Why! YesBoss”. The multiple award winning rapper thanked them for congratulating him. It was after this that the "critic-fan" tweeted "Bros u no try for dat cypher oo.” Naeto C got angry that he had to abuse the fan's father by saying “Na ur papa wey no try,” A supportive fan of the rapper also got into the drama replying the critic “u no sabi anything … who tell u say boss no try. Na back of TV u watch?” Naeto C then tweeted further with this tweet “On the cypher, everybody did their thing, if you don’t like any artist , his style or bars, which some may not get, simply keep it moving …” He added; “After all we were chosen to rep our country which is historical in itself, I’m the best @ what I do, MI and Mode are the best at what they do etc.”
