“It’s official fam! We are Marudites. We coined this from ‘Maria’, ‘erudite’, and aphrodite. So basically, it represents knowledgeable, loving, and beautiful people,” the tweet read.

Many fans are excited about their new name as they even introduced a blue butterfly as their symbol.

However, this decision did not go well with some of the fans as they have taken to Twitter to reject the name.

A fan, @tife_fabunmi, tweeted, “We? Who are the ‘we’? What we approved is Marians, any other name is fake.”

@Yollz_D said, “Chill and relax. This name is distasteful. Sounds like an unknown virus!”

Another fan, @olajumokefaniy1 said, “This does not follow. Pick up four of the names the fans have chosen and put them on a voting poll. I have seen Marians, Marines, Minjas, Dimarians, and so many more. Don’t impose a name on us, please. It’s too early.”

“Marines is a good name, which one is marudites? How does that relate to Maria?” @saralityb said.

@shugarcoatedb said, “Marudites kwa? I love Maria oh but this fanbase name is somehow oh”

As a result of the disagreements, a poll has been created via Maria’s Twitter page, as fans are now being allowed to choose between Marudites, Marvels, and Marians, as their fan base name.
