Sahara Reporters publisher, Omoyele Sowore has asked singer Burna Boy to join him in his protest scheduled for October 1 being Nigeria’s 60th Independence Day anniversary. He invited Burna via his verified Twitter account.
In the post, Sowore noted that Burna Boy is often compared to the late legendary afro-beat musician, Fela Anikulapo Kuti.
He further said that Burna Boy is celebrated by foreign media as a revolutionary musician but he has not done any revolutionary act like Fela whom he is compared to.
“Hello @burnboy, 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,” he tweeted.
