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.

Burna Boy, real name is Damini Ogulu, won the Best Global Music Album category with his “Twice as Tall” album.
Wizkid received recognition for his collaborative effort with Beyonce on the Lion King.
Omokri wrote: “If we are a wise nation, we should use these national treasures (@NOIweala, @BurnaBoy, and @wizkidayo) to promote Nigeria.
“We should have their images on our airports to welcome foreigners to Nigeria, and on our stamps, to project the Nigerian Dream.”
