Victor Adere, better known by his stage name Victor AD, has talked about the hardship he suffered when he first came into Lagos in search of greener pastures.
Advising his followers to keep working hard and hoping, the Wetin We Gain singer wrote:
I remember watching movies of people who made it in less than 3hrs. I been feel say if my own long well well e no go pass 24hrs! So I took my bag and I came to Lagos and ended up under Obalende Bridge for 3days. I never knew that those stories where summarized to motivate us, Bros! it may take you more than 30yrs to achieve what you saw in that movie but don’t ever think of giving up #prayforgracemagee
Meanwhile in another gist, controversial OAP, Daddy Freeze and Laura Ikeji have reacted to the statement made by Lagos Police Spokesperson, Bala Elkana on tattoo and dreadlocks.
Bala Elkana made this statement while in an interview with BBC Pidgin, where he alleged that police authorities have noted a connection between cultism and people that sport dreadlocks and draw tattoos on their bodies.
He then further disclosed that most of the cultists that have been arrested by the Police have tattoos on their bodies and wear dreadlocks.
He said in the interview;
‘Tattoo and dreadlock are strange to our culture especially for Nigeria. Most times when you arrest cultists, many of them have signs on them”
Daddy Freeze however in his reaction, said his Nigerian grand mother had tattoos and that there are kids born with natural dread called Dada.
In my humble opinion, this statement reeks prejudice and stereotyping.
By the way, my Yoruba grand mother had tattoos, there were local tattoos that women wore back then, my grandma had them. Kids born with dread are called ‘dada’ so I’m not getting this. ~FRZ
Reacting to the statement, Laura Ikeji shared:
“Reform the police, reform SARS. I’ve got tattoos too, does that make me a target? Common guys, protect us not kill us.”
