Beyoncé Vs Micheal Jackson: Nigerians Argue On Who’s A Better Performer Via Twitter, Beyoncé and Micheal Jackson have become the topic on everyone’s feed as Nigerians on Twitter engage in heated debate discussing the better performer between the two stars.
Many are of the opinion that even in his death, Michael Jackson remains the greatest musician of all time while others believe that Beyonce has taken over, especially following the quality of her work as showcased in the newly-released Netflix documentary, Homecoming.
See their opinions:
Beyonce has sold 17.2 million albums [in internet age]. Michael Jackson sold over 750 million albums. MJ’s Thriller alone sold 66 million copies. No one is yet to dethrone King Michael, even in death.

How can a sensible person compare Beyoncé to Michael Jackson 😂 What have you people been drinking lately 👨🏽💻 Michael Jackson that people are always fainting for left and right 😐 He was more popular without Spotify, SoundCloud and Instagram. Let us respect the dead please

She said Michael Jackson looked left and like 50 people on that side fainted and my guy said, “if you check well, Beyonce will be one of those 50 who fainted”.

Y’all comparing Beyonce to the Great Michael Jackson are all suffering from a nameless disease.
Y’all are disgrace to greatness

Michael Jackson’s Thriller (the single not the album) is bigger than Beyonce’s whole career. Y’all need to stop this nonsense.

Don’t be surprised if you see weird tweets today, like people saying Beyoncé is better than Michael Jackson or Messi/Ronaldo is better than Maradona. Do not worry. Christ will resurrect tomorrow, He will forgive them their sins and everything will be back to normal.

Beyonce fans are extremely brave to take on MJ
They really looked past Ariana grande and went straight for MJ.

Michael Jackson thrived in a time devoid of iTunes, YouTube, Instagram..etc.
Most popular name after Jesus Christ our Lord. Even his burial supersedes Beyonce’s existence
Compare Beyonce with Chris Brown, Drake, Justin Bieber, Wizkid, Davido, Ayefele and Chioma Jesus. PERIODT😒

@danielkingsanya – There were 3 greatest brand names of all times, that we grew up knowing. Jesus, Coca-Cola, and #MichaelJackson, no offense to Beyoncé, but if Michael Jackson was alive today and had a Twitter account, Twitter would have to recalibrate their counter metrics. He is that great.
@truthgrace19 – Nobody questions Bts and k pop singers about their hair and make-up but back then everybody questioned Michael Jackson. He was born in the wrong era. And man how ahead of his time he was. #MichaelJackson
@renoomokri – Comparing Michael Jackson to ANY artiste, living or dead, is like comparing a STREAM to an OCEAN. @Beyonce won’t even compare herself to him. He transcended race, gender and age. He died 10 years ago and is still inspiring those who weren’t even alive when during his prime year
@truthgrace19 – #Beyonce stans even Beyonce wouldn’t agree with her being greater than Michael Jackson. He was a major influence on her life and music. So chillax. End of discussion.
@tillytate20 – There are more than 3000 fake Micheal Jackson performers in Lagos alone, that can even out dance MJ.
Have you seen a fake beyoncé before, have you seen someone wear a leotard and try to perform like beyoncé?
No, because it’s fucking hard.
