"I Don’t Trust Nigerian Politicians" - Burna Boy Declines Sowore’s Invitation To Join RevolutionNow Protest 1

KanyiDaily recalls that the Coalition for Revolution (CORE) led by Sowore had called on Nigerians at home and in the Diaspora to come out en masse and participate in a massive peaceful protest against the government of President Muhammadu Buhari.

The RevolutionNow protest which is scheduled for October 1, 2020, on Nigeria’s 60th Independence Day anniversary, will take place in all states across the country, as well as in London, Sweden, Netherlands, United States, Canada, and Germany.

On Tuesday, Sowore took to his Twitter page and invited Burna Boy to join him in his protest since the singer is often compared to the late legendary afro-beat musician, Fela Anikulapo Kuti.

According to the Activist, 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.

Sowore wondered why Burna Boyk has never led a protest in Nigeria and seized the opportunity to invite the Wonderful singer to join him in his protest.

“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,” he tweeted.

In a swift reply, Burna Boy declined the request saying that all Nigerian politicians are the same and he trusts none of them including Sowore. The singer stated that everybody now refers to themselves as a Fela fan and supporter after he died.

“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,” Burna Boy said.

Sowore in response explained that he had been a member of the Fela family, enthusing that “I am a member of Fela’s household, ask Seun Kuti.”

“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.”

BurnaBoy responded saying: “@YeleSowore Well. I am NOT FELA. I Have said that countless times. But you sir Are a politician. Leave me out of your schemes. Thanks”

KanyiDaily recalls that the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) had also declared a sit-at-home on October 1, to protest alleged killings, terrorism, bad governance and economic annihilation in Nigeria.
