Nigerian singer, Burna Boy has turned down activist, Sowore’s invitation to join a planned anti-government protest.

Ahead of a planned protest on 1st October, 2020 being Nigeria’s independence day anniversary, Omoyele Sowore took to Twitter on Tuesday , September 29, 2020, and tried to woo Burna Boy to join the protest. 

“Hello @burnaboy, everywhere I turn people describe you as a revolutionary musician, the foreign media even celebrate you compared 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,” he tweeted.

While reacting to the tweet, Burna Boy dismissed the invitation insisting that all politicians (Including Sowore) are all the same.

“Everybody is a Fela fan and supporter now that he is dead. Humans are so Funny, You politicians are ALL the same (especially in Nigeria) and Frankly, I don’t trust none of you.@YeleSowore,” he tweeted.

Sowore and his group are planning a nationwide protest on October 1, to demand for government’s accountability of its citizens.

Several hashtags have been generated by the activist and his group on social media including the popular #OccupyNigeria.

Sowore is a Nigerian human rights activist, pro-democracy campaigner, former presidential candidate, and founder of an online news agency Sahara Reporters.
