Nigerian musician, Bankole Wellington, popularly known as Banky W, has condemned the Nigerian government for its failure to secure and protect the rights of the citizens as promised.
The musician turned actor made his grief known in a music video posted on his instagram page with hashtag #BetterChallenge.
Few weeks ago, Nigerian singer and producer, Tekno who has been on the comeback trail released a conscious track titled, ‘Better (Hope For Africa),’ and quite a good number of musicians have done covers of the song with the hashtag #BetterChallenge.
He also accused Nigerians of being too complacent in moments when they should act.
He said, “You see the story is the same old one, you want change but you won’t vote? Then complaining is a not the thing.
“Who go represent you? When they enter office, they will get what they paid for. Na double wahala for everybody.”
The video went on to show CCTV footage of Sowore’s arrest by operatives of the Department of State Services in Lagos on August 3.
He added, “They arrest protestor and protect dishonourable senators. Who be the meat, who be the hunter? Too many days for the thief, one day for the owner.”
Recall that the singer and former executive of EME contested for the Federal House of Representatives, Eti-Osa constituency under the umbrella of the Modern Democratic Party (MDP).
