Burna Boy responds as Sowore calls on him to join #RevolutionNow protest



Nigerian afro-beat star, Damini ”Burna Boy’‘ Ogulu has reacted to a call by RevolutionNow convener, Omoyele Sowore, for him to join in protesting against President Muhammadu Buhari’s government on Nigeria’s Independence Day Anniversary.

Recall that Sowore had earlier today, challenged Burna Boy to join the #RevolutionNow protest on October 1st.

Taking to Twitter, the politician and activist wrote: “Hello @burnaboy, everywhere I turn people describe you as a revolutionary musician, the foreign media even celebrate you compare you to Fela Kuti, but I am yet to see you lead anyone to a police station carrying a coffin for head of state! Join #Oct1stProtest #RevolutionNow.

Burna Boy has now responded to Sowore on Twitter, stating that the same people late Fela fought for were those who betrayed him.

In a post which he has now deleted, Burna replied; “When Fela was alive, the very people he was fighting for are the ones who put him through the real hell.

People even stayed away from my mother’s family for associating with Fela. They killed his mother and most Nigerians said he deserved it…”
