Spread the love

Popular Nigerian singer, Burnaboy has expressed his distrust for Nigerian Politicians after he turned down a request by former presidential candidate, Omoyele Sowore to join the nationwide protest on October 1.

Sowore had Twitted at Burnaboy to join the RevolutionNow protest against President Muhammadu Buhari’s government and act like Fela Kuti.

His tweet read: “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.”

Replying his tweet, Burnaboy made it clear that he doesn’t trust any Nigerian politician as they are all the same.

He wrote:

“Sowore well, I am NOT FELA. I have said that countless times. But you sir, are a politician. Leave me out of your schemes.

“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,”


  1. don’t my brother they all Carmelina’s they can change a over night he will just bring u out and mess u up don’t mind him pls

  2. Don’t put bonaboy into trouble oo, because na jejely he sat down on his own don’t poot him in Nigeria trouble is not like fela anikulapo. But in the order side we still need the pretest and you must Stan as revolution musician. Omoyele sohore is trying to make peace in Nigeria.

  3. Burna Boy is solely here to make his money, not to come and be like Fela…he is just following fela pattern of song in another dimension…Nobody musically can be fearless and outspoken like FELA…

  4. But is such a gentleman, and he is trying to avoid himself from Nigerian politicians including omoyele sohore him self. The protest is not easy but in the order side we need the revolution and we must protest. Burnaboy don’t worry nothing we happen. Just act like fela anikulapo kuti revolution musician.

  5. Even not only politicians including those called themselves labor representative all of them have disarray from the foundation lay down for them from onset, what you did was absolutely right.

  6. Waywardness of politicians are becoming unbearable, there’s no iota of Truth from whatever they say, they are the one who will say this is white before twinkle of an eye they will change it to black. Trust nobody.

  7. You are on the right track because politicians nowadays have turned money to their semi god, once other politicians were able to gain their hearts that’s the end. You will just be on your own (OYO). I will implore you to trust nobody and leave those politicians alone.

  8. Burna boy ,You got my support. Both the government and Sowore are politicians who are after their personal interest. All of you are the same jor, As far as I’m concerned no musician in Nigeria is like baba fela kuti.

  9. Fela Anikulapo the legend was not a Politician. Fela Anikulapo Kuti was not fighting the Government because he lost in an Election. Burma boy is not Fela, and he has never compared himself to Fela. Fela Anikulapo Kuti was an ICON. Fela Anikulapo Kuti was a god of Music. Fela Anikulapo Kuti was a Philosopher. Fela Anikulapo Kuti’s SONS is more a call For FREEDOM from our Political COLONIAL MASTER. Fela Anikulapo Kuti was always arrested, kept in the jungle, but Fela’s mouth would never stop CHALLENGING the LOOTERS OF OUR COMMONWEALTH. Remember: ITT, DEOOCRACY- Demonstration of craziness, Beast of No Nation, Coffin head of state. To mention but few. Fela Anikulapo Kuti is dead, but his work (SONGS) is still leaving. Fela Kuti was a SELFLESS REVOLUTIONIST. So NO ONE CAN BE COMPARED TO Fela The Legend.

  10. I stand with Burna boy. Nigeria politicians don’t always have any ideology. They are always behaving like carmelion. They say this today and say another tomorrow. They do things just to fulfill their private interest and when that is over, they switch over to another style

  11. It is not only you that does not trust our politicians, even me I don’t trust them too.
    Tomorrow you see them dine and wine together and you will then be man alone

  12. Yes bro you are very correct Burna Boy, our politicians are not to be trusted again and they caused it. They have sold the trust we have for them, A government that tells her subject One thing and do another different thing altogether so please tell me how and why we should trust such a government that is not straight forward
