Chioma Jesus, a gospel singer, defeated Beyonce, an American music icon, in a popularity contest.
For the two superstars, a popularity survey was created after a Twitter user, @Imoteda claimed it is weird for people to think that football players are “crazily popular”.
The Twitter user also insinuated that Beyonce is more popular than football players. She tweeted;
“SO MANY PEOPLE THINK FOOTBALL PLAYERS ARE CRAZY POPULAR. IT’S SO WEIRD. LIKE HOW CAN YOU SAY A FOOTBALL PLAYER IS MORE POPULAR THAN BEYONCE? THEN NAME TWO FOOTBALL PLAYERS THAN EVEN I WOULDN’T RECOGNIZE. LOL”
The tweet got the attention of many football fans. While many countered the claim, another Twitter user organized a poll between Chioma Jesus and Beyonce with the caption “who is more popular”.
Chioma Jesus garnered 85.7% of the 77,864 votes cast to win the poll against Beyonce.
