Publisher of the SaharaReporters media news agency, Omoyele Sowore, has sent invitation to popular Nigerian singer, Burna Boy, to join in his organized protest scheduled for October 1, a day marked for Nigeria’s 60th Independence anniversary.
Sowore announced the invitation via his official Twitter handle, @YeleSowore.
From the post, Sowore compared Burna Boy to the late legendary Nigerian afro-beat musician, Fela Anikulapo Kuti.
He praised Burna Boy as he is being celebrated by foreign media as a revolutionary musician, but noted that the singer has not done any revolutionary act compared to Fela.
Sowore wondered why Burna Boy has never led a protest in the country while he invited the singer for the forthcoming protest slated for October 1, 2020.
Sowore’s tweet reads;
“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,”
