Earlier this week, Naija music veteran 2baba shocked many when he declared his intention to join a nationwide protest against the Federal Government. The announcement has so far influenced a lot of people to declare interest in the protest and these include some of 2baba’s colleagues namely Burnaboy, Davido and Olamide.
Today, 2baba, formerally known as 2face Idibia, explains why he is participating in the protest.
According to the 41-year-old:
I am blessed to have a platform that allows me to reach a lot of people at a time. I believe this voice also comes with a responsibility to use it to speak up for my people. So, when I received the broadcasts that had been going round for some days calling for protests against the state of the country I posted it in a show of support.
My intention was never to take credit for the movement but rather amplify the voices of the organization credited with the widely circulated message.
To my colleagues that have joined their voices to this call, thank you for showing the Nigerian people they are not alone. I remain committed to contributing to the well being of my people in any little way I can. One love! #WeWillProtest
