Co-founder of Paystack Ezra Olubi left a mark on President Muhammadu Buhari at the national awards ceremony on Tuesday in Abuja.
Olubi was conferred with the Officer of the Order of Niger alongside his co-founder, Shola Akinlade.
Olubi was wearing a black outfit with pleats flowing from the neckline down the front. He also wore lipstick and makeup.
Buhari smiled as he handed over the award but kept looking at Olubi, as the latter moved back to his seat.
The reaction of the president has been trending on social media.

Buhari could not believe Ezra’s (Paystack’s co-founder) lipstick. That’s the funniest video from Nigeria this week, if you do get to see it. I have been laughing non-stop for minutes wallah.
