KanyiDaily recalls that the Coalition for Revolution (CORE) led by Sowore had called on Nigerians at home and in the Diaspora to come out en masse and participate in a massive peaceful protest against the government of President Muhammadu Buhari.

The RevolutionNow protest which is scheduled for October 1, 2020, on Nigeria’s 60th Independence Day anniversary, will take place in all states across the country, as well as in London, Sweden, Netherlands, United States, Canada, and Germany.

On Tuesday, Sowore took to his Twitter page and invited Burna Boy to join him in his protest since the singer is often compared to the late legendary afro-beat musician, Fela Anikulapo Kuti.

According to the Activist, Burna Boy is celebrated by foreign media as a revolutionary musician but he has not done any revolutionary act like Fela whom he is compared to.
