Omokri, who made the call on his Twitter handle, also implored the government to extend the honour to the Director-General of the World Trade Organisation (WTO), Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala.
He described the singers as the country’s ambassadors who should be treated with honour and respect.
Okonjo-Iweala, who was elected the WTO director-general last month, assumed office on March 1.
