Nigerian musician Damini Ogulu aka Burna Boy, has reacted to the challenge by #RevolutionNow protest convener, Omoyele Sowore.
The former presidential candidate had urged him to join a protest against President Muhammadu Buhari’s government on forthcoming independence day celebration.
Sowore had challenged the singer to the title of a ‘revolutionary singer’ that he is known for both home and abroad and the claim of following the footstep of the late legend, 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 #Oct1stProtest #RevolutionNow.”
The self styled African giant, Burna Boy has now responded to Sowore on Twitter.
In a retweet which Burna Boy has now deleted, he wrote…
“When Fela was alive, the very people he was fighting for are the ones who put him through the real hell…”
