Afrobeat star Burna Boy has turned down an invitation by Nigerian politician and activist Omoyele Sowore to join in an anti-government protest on October 1st.

Nigeria is set to celebrate her 60th independence day on October 1, Sowore and his group are planning a nationwide protest on October 1, to demand the government’s accountability of its citizens.

Omoyele Sowore earlier today made the call for Burna to join the movement in a message he shared on social media.

According to the former presidential candidate, many describe Burna Boy as a revolutionary musician and he has been likened to the late afrobeat legend Fela Kuti.
He wrote on Twitter.

“@burnaboygram 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”

Burna Boy, however, declined the invitation , stating that all Nigerian politicians are the same and he trusts none of them including Sowore. He wrote;

“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.

 

Following Burna Boy’s refusal to join in on the protest, many Nigeria Twitter users have slammed the singer for being one to talk the walk but not ready to walk the walk.
