Burna Boy reacts as Sowore challenges him to protest on 1st October


African Giant, Burna Boy has responded after convener of the #RevolutionNow movement, Omoyele Sowore chalenged him to hitch him and protest against President Muhammadu Buhari’s government on forthcoming Independence Day celebration.

Recall we reported that Nigerian activist and politician, Omoyele Sowore called on Burna Boy to join him on the #RevolutionNow protest on October 1st.

Sowore had challenged the singer to the title of a ‘revolutionary singer’ that he's known for both home and abroad and therefore the claim of following the footstep of the late legend, Fela Anikulapo Kuti.

The convener of the #RevolutionNow protest stated this ahead of a peaceful protest slated for October 1st – Nigeria’s 60th Independence Day anniversary.

Taking to Twitter, Sowore wrote: 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'm yet to ascertain you lead anyone to a police headquarters carrying a coffin for head of state! Join #Oct1stProtest #RevolutionNow.

The self styled African giant, Burna Boy has now responded to Sowore on Twitter.

According to Burna Boy, same people late Fela fought for were those that betrayed him.

He also revealed that people avoided his family simply because his mother associated with Fela.

In a retweet which Burna Boy has now deleted, he wrote… “When Fela was alive, the very people he was fighting for are those who put him through the real hell.

People even stayed off from my mother’s family for associating with Fela. They killed his mother and most Nigerians said he deserved it
