The Social media space was turned into a Battle ground over the weekend as Nigerian Banks attacked each other after Sterling Bank threw a Jab at some Top Banks which includes First Bank, Union Bank, Access Bank and GTBank.
HOW THE BEEF STARTED
Drama started when Sterling Bank took to their Twitter page to post an interesting advert with a caption that promised customers better banking services.
It was a very simple tweet, the bank wrote: “Shoot for the moon, become a star – it’s the least you deserve. Welcome to #SterlingBank
A text was also written at the bottom part of their Ads “Choose a Partner that takes you higher“.
See what they Shared on Twitter that started the Beef:-
NOW, LET’S BREAK DOWN THE MEANING OF THE ADS FOR YOU
You saw that image above?
In case you don’t understand, let’s break down the ads for you.
…. But the person who created this Sterling bank Advert idea is a Wicked person sha..
The interesting fact about this Ads is that they’ve gained more attention for Free without paying anyone. They would have spent close to 100m to Advertise on TV, Online, Radio to get so much attention like this.
Now, other Brands might just adopt the same pattern to get good attentions to their Brands also. I won’t be shock to see APC and PDP doing the same too 😋😋😋
THE AFFECED BANKS RESPONDED TO STERLING BANK TWEETS
Now, all the affected/insulted banks responded to Sterling Bank Tweets and the War became even more hotter 😂
ACCESS BANK RESPONDED
Access Bank was savage in their response to Sterling bank.. As seen in the Advert above, a man was seen on a Sterling bank Rocket heading into the space.
Access Bank is not here to joke at all! They even regarded Sterling bank as a “One-Customer Microfinance Bank” 😂😂 Guess you all remember their Original slogan is “Your One Customer Bank“… Access Bank is Wicked!
UNION BANK RESPONDED TOO
Union Bank seemed even more upset, coming for Sterling again, again, and again.
They responded with 3 Tweets, calling Sterling Bank a Small boy who is disrespecting his Elders 😂😂
See their Tweets below:-
FIRST BANK RESPONDED ALSO
First Bank had fewer words too, they speaks in parables, characteristic of the elderly.
First Bank indirectly told Sterling Bank that they are the elder in the Game and here are their responses.
See their Tweet below:-
FCMB POKE NOSED INTO THE MATTER
FCMB watched from the sidelines, waiting to be called upon but this Beef is for the Bigger guys.
God go make una bigger too 🙏
GTBANK IS YET TO RESPOND AFTER 24 HOURS
GTBank, however, was a no-show. Mature or scared? We don’t know.
The peoples bank is yet to respond to the Sterling Bank Brand wrecking Tweet and Nigerians are not happy with that.
Guess their Social media handlers are all high on Alcoholic drink and Nigerians are already loosing their cool about their slow response.
See what some Nigerians are saying on Twitter about GTBank slow response:-
We hope GTBank reply on Monday else…. We the customer might be left with no choice than to close down our Account.
Can’t patronize a Mumu Bank!!!!
