Nollywood actor, Akah Nnani has taken to berate his colleagues who are singing and praying for politicians who are seeking to contest for election in 2023.
Akah Nnani Caution His Colleagues
KanyiDaily recalls that many Nigerians had recently criticized singer, Timi Dakolo for performing at the presidential declaration of a former vice-president, Atiku Abubakar.
A few days before Dakolo’s performance, some former Super Eagles players were also lambasted for visiting and praying for the presidential ambition of Bola Tinubu, the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Taking to his Instagram page on Friday, Akah Nnani stated that anyone who pray or sing at a political event or for a politician has endorsed that candidate.
The actor told his colleagues to start choosing sides now as fixing the country is more than screaming about what’s wrong, noting that they don’t have the luxury of taking their image or work lightly especially now.
Nnani said, “If you pray at a political event or you sing for politician, you have endorsed that candidate. As public figures/Entertainers, we don’t have the luxury of taking our image or work lightly. Now now. We must act with purpose and be burdened with posterity. Let’s walk the talk.
He added, “We have to start choosing sides now. This is a public announcement to all but especially to my fellow colleagues. It’s not by screaming about what’s wrong with the country when it’s convenient. It’s hard sometimes but you have to turn down that money. We already know who our enemies are.
“From now, you have to decide on whose side you are on. Are you for the generation that has failed us time and time again? And dealt wickedly with is during the protests? Or are you about looking for alternative and the new generation and using your platform and the gift of influence that you have to spread hope for a better future? Answer these questions now and choose your side. But whatever you choose, stay consistent”.
KanyiDaily recalls that Nollywood actress, Mary Lazarus said she would gladly collect any money offered to her by politicians seeking to buy her vote in the 2023 general election.
