Grammy-nominated Nigerian afrobeat singer, Burna Boy, has again reacted to a call by RevolutionNow convener, Omoyele Sowore to join him in his protest scheduled for October 1, 2020.
Recall that Sowore took to his social media account on Tuesday, September 29, to invite the award-winning singer to join him in his protest.
In the post, Sowore noted that Burna Boy was often compared to the late legendary afro-beat musician, Fela Anikulapo Kuti and wondered why Burna Boy had never led any protest in Nigeria.
“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,” he tweeted.
The self-acclaimed African giant took to his verified Twitter account to reply and inform his followers that he does not trust Nigerian politicians.
The Rivers-born musician further stated that all politicians in Nigeria are the same.
He tweeted, “Everybody is a Fela fan and supporter now that he is dead. Humans are so funny, you politicians are all the same (especially in Nigeria) and frankly, I don’t trust none of [email protected]”
Burna added; “@YeleSowore Well. I am NOT FELA. I Have said that countless times. But you sir Are a politician. Leave me out of your schemes. Thanks.”
