Why I Turned Down Sowore Invitation To Protest-Burna Boy

Burna Boy

Nigerian musician, Burna Boy, has revealed why he turned down Omoyele Sowore’s invitation to join the Thursday, October 1 #RevolutionNow protest.

Recall that Sowore had extended an invitation to Burna Boy telling him that he is often compared to Fela, but is yet to lead a revolution.

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.”

Reacting to Sowore who was Presidential candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC) in the last presidential election, Burna Boy said that “When Fela was alive, the 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 that he deserved it.”

Explaining why he would not be joining the protest, Burna Boy said: Politicians are all the same and he doesn’t trust them.
