Former presidential candidate and activist, Omoyele Sowore has invited music star Burna Boy to join the Revolution Protest which is scheduled to take place on the Independence day October 1st, 2020.
Sowore took to his Twitter page to call on Burna Boy to join in the protest as he is being compared to the late Fela Anikulapo Kuti.
“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” Sowore wrote
Burna Boy responded by saying when Fela was alive the people he was fighting for were the same ones that put him through hell adding that his mother’s family were also victimized for being connected to the late musician. He stated further that he does not trust any politician especially anyone from Nigeria.
Sowore also responded that he is not one of the person one could describe as a Fela fan but he is a member of the Fela household adding that if Burna Boy wants to be Fela, he should act like him.
“@burnaboy 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”
Sowore who is known for his ‘Revolution Now’ Protests and has been on the neck of the Nigerian Government for a better country.
