DJ Switch has described Nigerian soldiers as mindless zombies who follow idiotic orders without question.
In a video snippet of the event, DJ Switch made reference to Fela Anikulapo Kuti’s 1977 hit song, Zombie, where he likened the Nigerian Army to ‘mindless zombies who follow idiotic orders.’
The DJ said the youths are ready to stand up to the oppressors (Nigerian leaders) who have failed to create an enabling environment for them to thrive and contribute.
The entertainer also lambasted the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, who she described as “our very own spin doctor whose first name is Lie.”

She said: “As an artiste and a DJ, I listen to music a lot all the time and I am reminded of the legend — the artiste, Fela Anikulapo Kuti. He was known for speaking truth to power with his music and I am reminded of his 1977 song titled, Zombie.
“Here, Fela likens the Nigerian military to mindless zombies following idiotic orders. It was relevant then, it is relevant today and it is most likely relevant tomorrow, in the future.
“The same future that they say is in the hands of the leaders of tomorrow, but what we have tomorrow are recycled leaders of today who have failed to provide an enabling environment for young leaders to thrive and contribute. But they chose, instead to kill us all off one by one.
“This might sound outrageous to you and you might wonder why; I will tell you. Our leaders are afraid; it is as simple as that. They are afraid of a thinking, innovative, and collaborative working Nigeria. They are afraid of every young Nigerian who, against all odds, have made it for themselves.
“They are afraid of a ‘me’; the coconut head generation as we like to call ourselves. We are hard-headed, we are not easily deceived by propaganda. We stand up to our oppressors, starting with the Nigerian Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed.
“Yes, you heard me right. The Nigerian Minister for Information, our very own spin doctor, his first name is ‘Lie’. It is inevitable, right? The pun is begging me. ‘Lie’ called the shooting a fabrication of a massacre without bodies. He said I was a purveyor of fake news with an intent of tarnishing the nation’s image and I am a terrorist among other things.
“The Nigerian Army called the shooting fake and that I had made the whole thing up with a green screen. Yes, I have plans of going to Hollywood after this speech.”

DJ Switch gained prominence after doing a live video of Nigerian Soldiers opening fire on peaceful #EndSARS protesters at the Lekki toll gate, killing an unconfirmed number of people and injuring so many others on Tuesday night, October 21, 2020.
Lai Mohammed had said that DJ Switch would be exposed in due course over her claims that the Nigerian military shot at unarmed #EndSARS protesters on that night at the Lekki Toll Gate.
DJ Switch later cried out on social media that her life was under serious threats after she spoke out on what transpired at Lekki tollgate, forcing her to flee the country.
