African Giant, Burna Boy has responded after convener of the #RevolutionNow movement, Omoyele Sowore chalenged him to join him and protest against President Muhammadu Buhari’s government on forthcoming independence day celebration.
Recall we reported that Nigerian activist and politician, Omoyele Sowore called on Burna Boy to join him on the #RevolutionNow protest on October 1st.
Sowore had 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.
Taking to Twitter, Sowore 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.”
The self styled African giant, Burna Boy has now responded to Sowore on Twitter.
According to Burna Boy, same people late Fela fought for were those who betrayed him.
He also revealed that people avoided his family just because his mother associated with Fela.
In a retweet which Burna Boy has now deleted, he wrote… “When Fela was alive, the very people he was fighting for are the ones who put him through the real hell.
People even stayed away from my mother’s family for associating with Fela. They killed his mother and most Nigerians said he deserved it…”
