Sahara Reporters publisher, Omoyele Sowore has wondered why singer Burna Boy has never led any protest like the late Afrobeat legend, Fela Anikulapo Kuti.

According to him, Burna Boy who is celebrated by foreign media as a revolutionary musician hasn’t done any revolutionary act like Fela whom he’s compared to.

Sowore who is the convener of the Revolution Now protest stated this ahead of a peaceful protest slated for October 1st which is Nigeria’s 60th Independence Day anniversary.

He tweeted:

“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.”
