Singer, Burna Boy, has taken to social media to slam activist, Omoyele Sowore over Fela fanship and noted that all politicians are the same, especially in Nigeria as he turned down a request by the former presidential candidate, Omoyele Sowore to join the nationwide protest on October 1.
Recall Sowore on Tuesday night tweeted at Burna boy to join the RevolutionNow protest against President Muhammadu Buhari’s government and act like Fela Kuti.
Burna Boy was quick to remind him how Nigerians he fought for betrayed him.
In another tweet, Burna Boy has now said that all Nigerian politicians are the same.
He tweeted… “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 any of you.@YeleSowore,” Burna tweeted.
Reacting to Burna Boy tweet, Sowore explained that he had been a member of the Fela family, enthusing that “I am a member of Fela’s household, ask Seun Kuti.”
The activist and ex-presidential candidate tweeted… “I am not just one of the persons who you could describe as “Fela’s fan after he died,” I am a member of Fela’s household, ask @RealSeunKuti , as a student’s leader in the 90s I met and hung out with Abami Eda at home and the African shrine! If you want to be Fela be Fela.”
