Nigerian activist and politician, Omoyele Sowore has endeavored Afrobeat singer, Burna Boy to join in on the #RevolutionNow protest.
Sowore challenged the singer to the title of a ‘revolutionary singer’ that he is known for both home and abroad and the claim of following the footstep of the late legend, Fela Anikulapo Kuti.
The convener of the #RevolutionNow protest stated this ahead of a peaceful protest slated for October 1st – Nigeria’s 60th Independence Day anniversary.
The #RevolutionNow protesters who are known to criticize the increase in insecurity, unemployment, and many others under President Buhari administration have however asked for the voice of self-acclaimed African Giant, Burna Boy, to support their movement just as Fela fought for the rights of the masses in his time.
Taking to Twitter, he 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.”
