Nigerian publisher, Omoyele Sowore has taken to his Twitter page to invite Burna Boy of the music industry to partake in his protest scheduled for October 1 which is Nigeria’s 60th Independence Day anniversary.
In the post, Sowore noted that Burna Boy is compared to the late legendary afro-beat musician, Fela Anikulapo Kuti, and is also celebrated by the foreign media as a revolutionary musician even though he has not done any revolutionary act like Fela.
Sowore expressed his wonder at why Burna Boy has never led a protest in Nigeria and seized the opportunity to invite him to join in his protest. He tweeted;
“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,”
