Now we know 2face wouldn’t be alone in his cause.
Nigerian singer, Burna Boy has declared his support for the legendary musician’s cause of leading a nationwide protest against the Nigerian government.
According to him, the Nigerian government has failed its people leading the country into an economic downturn.
2Baba made the announcement earlier via social media, calling other Nigerians to action with his post that read:
“FIRST MASSIVE NATIONWIDE PROTESTS ON THE 5TH OF FEBRUARY, 2017.
“A call for good governance.
“A call for urgent explanation into the reckless economic downturn nationwide.
“A call for nationwide protests as we say No to the Executive, No to legislatures, No to judiciary… You have all failed us.
“We the people are tired. We can no longer continue with all of you. All your excuses and mistakes are not funny. We do not wish to continue with a system and government that is not working but afflicting the people.
“We the people of this country not living under the privileges of government allowances and remuneration have now accepted to take the bull by the horn to come out and protest this obnoxious and baseless policy and excuses of the government of the day.
“Where are the recovered looted funds?”
Why do we still have the executive arms and legislatures still enjoying their salaries and allowances while we hear there’s no money to pay workers?
Why do we still see ceaseless power failures with no explanation and hope of getting out of it unlike before?”
Now, Burnaboy has said that he would be joining the protest, proclaiming that he is “ready to die for this sh*t.”
He took to Twitter to express his animosity against the Nigerian government, and even knowing that marching in protest has not done much for the country, he would rather try than do nothing.
Davido was not left out of the action, as he announced via Twitter that he would also be at the march, telling Burna Boy that he would stand with him.
We can only hope that this is the beginning of a revolution in Nigeria where Nigerians actually stand up and fight back.
