Burna Boy’s Responds To Sowore After His Request To Him Join The #RevolutionNow Protest

Award-winning Nigerian musician, Burnaboy has responded to the call of the convener of the #RevolutionNow movement, Omoyele Sowore.

This comes after Sowore challenged him to join him and protest against President Muhammadu Buhari’s government on forthcoming independence day celebration.

Challenging him, 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 am yet to see you lead anyone to a police station carrying a coffin for head of state! Join #Oct1stProtest #RevolutionNow.”

In his reaction, Burnaboy wrote;

“When Fela was alive, the very people he was fighting for are the ones who put him through the real hell.

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