Nigerian politician, Omoyele Sowore got more than he bargained for when he invited singer, Burna Boy to join his #RevolutionNow protest scheduled to hold on October 1.
The former presidential candidate tweeted at Burna Boy saying: “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.”
The Twice As Tall crooner turned down his request calling him a schemer.
Burna Boy tweeted in his reply: “Well, I am not Fela. I have said that countless times. But you sir are a politician. Leave me out of your schemes. Thanks”.
Reacting to Burna Boy’s insistence on not being Fela, Sowore insinuated that the singer portrays Fela’s character when it is artistically convenient. The media personality also shared old tweets in which Burna Boy claimed Fela lives in him and also wore panties on stage like the late music legend.
He tweeted: “No schemes, just telling you that becos there are lots of comparisons & mannerisms, but there is a need for CHARACTER of the Fela that stands for social-political justice because you’ve professed these when it’s artistically convenient! I do hope you will join us!”
