@Chrisamaechi: Abeg allow her earn her pay. Charge them double if she could. Artists should be free to ply their trade this season. They are like printers and bus drivers. She knows that at the end, Obi-dience is the most important thing.
@3xtimesalady: Atleast Udom Emmanuel paid her appearance fee, wetin concern her? She probably knows how to vote wisely.
@Silad_Chime: If you are a carpenter, and called to fix Tinubu’s table, you will charge the fee for the service and get the job done. Na work she go do. You finish, they pay you, you waka. Nothing attached. She doesn’t need to vote for PDP/ APC. She can actually sing for APC and PDP same day.
@IkennaArinze: This is a state rally to support one of their own. She was not at the presidential rally. If she believes that the pdp have done well in Akwa Ibom, she should carry go.
