Popular Nigerian musician, Ayodeji Balogun aka Wizkid, has revealed the real reason he actively participated during the #EndSARS protest, stating that if he had not spoken up, he would have been a “coward”.
Speaking in an interview on Capital Xtra’s ‘The Norte Show’, Wizkid disclosed that he participated fully in the campaign because of his unpleasant experience.
He said, “Police brutality is a serious situation back home in Nigeria. It has been 60 years of political injustice, nepotism, madness and corruption at the highest level.
“It is sad that my son is about to be 10 years old and Nigeria is still going through all these madness. If I didn’t speak up or use my voice, then I would be a coward. I will continue to speak about things that affect people in their daily lives.
“I had been a victim of police brutality before I became popular and I know it still goes on. That needs to end. We deserve good governance in Nigeria.”
