Nigerian rapper and actor, Folarin Falana better known as Falz says he will not reveal the candidate he is supporting ahead of the presidential elections.

He, however, stated that he would never vote for someone who has been a part of the same system which is rotten.

Falz made this known while being interviewed on Arise TV, where he called on Nigerians to vote based on a person’s track record of doing things that favour the people.

He said that the focus should not be on choosing political parties, rather it should be to elect candidates who is known to have been transparent and honest.

”Anyone who is coming from this same system that has brought rot knows that I will not vote for them,” he said.

The comic act said political parties in Nigeria have no form of ideologies and even the presidential flagbearers of the partie would be clueless if they are asked to state what their party’s ideology.

Watch the interview below:

Meanwhile comedian and actor, Debo Adedayo, also known as Mr Macaroni, has spoken on whether he would run for any political seat.

Mr Macaroni, who is also a human rights activist, said that at the moment he has no intention of joining politics or running for office.

The content creator made this known in a recent interview while recalling his ordeal at the hands of police officers after that he was arrested in February 2021 during the #OccupyLekkiTollGate protest which was to forestall the planned reopening of the toll plaza in Lagos.

After the #EndSARS protest in October 2020, the Lekki toll gate was closed down as a result of the shooting of peaceful protesters that converged at the location.

According to Macaroni, after he was arrested together with other demonstrators, police took him to the station and stripped them of every clothe they wore.

He explained how the security agents beat him mercilessly, in a bid to ‘teach him a lesson’ for challenging the status quo.

The content creator said the experience made him more angry and it emboldened him to challenge persons in power, including the governor.

Mr Macaroni further said that while he was in the situation, the police berated him for offending the state governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu.

He said that because of their threat and mention of the governor, he felt the officers had the Lagos governor’s backing to treat him that way.

He, however, mentioned the role his mum plays in trying to make him ease up on his activism. He also said that he felt sad about the nation after experiencing such inhuman treatment, but he came out stronger from that ordeal.

The actor said there is a difference between his character, Mr Macaroni and him as Debo, is because that is the type of person.

He explained further that if he ever sees someone being treated unjustly, he would stand up to the oppressors.
