Elders we’re supposed to be respecting are busy disrespecting themselves – Vector

Nigerian Hip Hop star, Vector has shared his two cents on the demand for respect by elders in position of authority in the country, who claim that values are gone.

The rapper said that he observed how the same older generation who expect young Nigerians to respect them are already disrespecting themselves by labeling the youths unbecoming names.

Vector added that their denigrating utterances could have been pardonable if they were delivering good governance to the citizens.

He cited an instance with the former Aviation minister, Femi Fani-Kayode and explained why some persons are trolling him online.

He wrote; “It just occurred to me that presently, the elders we are supposed to be respecting are busy disrespecting themselves calling Their youth (the people’s future) all sorts of names. It could have made pardonable sense if they (the “elders” ) were truly excellent in public office.

For example, no one is dissing FFK because he looks like a fly frog on aviators on his dp. No, they diss him because he’s not a man of any of his plenty academically sound utterances. These are men of Public office representing the people they are fighting lol.”

CorrectNG recalls that Vector and rapper, Folarin Falana aka Falz hit the studio to record a song tackling the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu.

The track is named after the INEC boss ‘Mr Yakubu’, aimed at condemning the conduct of the 2023 general elections.

The activist released a snippet of the music video on his official Twitter page and it peaked the interest of social media users.

He had earlier criticised the electoral body for budgeting N300 billion to conduct an election that many international and local observers, as well as well-meaning Nigerians have described as a sham which was not credible, free or fair.

He also released a sample of what is believed to be a representation of the result sheets which were tampered with after Nigerians cast their votes.

Falz and Vector have decided to express their views about the election in the diss track.

The son of Femi Falana SAN, called out INEC, its Chairman, and political parties allegedly involved in the electoral malpractices.

His lyrics said; “Mr Yakubu! Ę ma ń se bi fraudster, you don’t want to prosper, come and collect, oscar 300 billion te gbà lówó ìjoba, kí le fi se ná sir.”

Vector had some critical points to buttress as well.
