The politician, who campaigned as a presidential candidate in the last presidential election in Nigeria, challenged Burna Boy on the 29th of September, to join the October 1st protest tagged “Revolution Now”.
According to him, he is calling out the “Way too big” singer because he has never seen him actively protest against the Nigerian government despite being compared to the late legendary Fela Kuti who was and still is majorly known for his activism.
“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”
In responding to this challenge, Burna Boy in a now-deleted tweet stated that Fela was harshly criticized by the Nigerians he fought for and even his parents were ostracized for associating with Fela Kuti.
Speaking further, he stated that he does not trust Nigerian politicians because every one of them is the same including Yele Sowore who called him out.
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 you.@YeleSowore.
