Published

on

Legendary Juju artist, Sir Shina Peters, popularly known as SSP has frowned at the attitude of the Federal Government towards musicians.

According to him, the Federal Government has simply refused to see musicians as responsible individuals, but would rather identify with footballers.

“Federal Government refused to acknowledge us as somebody, instead of that they pour millions of Dollars into football. I have been saying this for quite a while, if you can carve a body for football, why can’t you do the same for entertainment?” he asked during a chat with us.
