The performer, who as of late paid an affability visit to the president in Abuja, said he’s conveying Buhari’s support. Buhari is the first president coming twice to battle “the cabal that refuses to let this country move forward.
He explained further:
For the first time, we have someone who looks the cabal in the face and tells them enough is enough. He had tried this when he first came as a military ruler.
I follow my mind on any issue. The truth is that each and every one of us, either you participate actively or not, is a politician. If you are a man, and it is time to marry, you become a politician, because if you have more than a woman in your life, you have to play some politics in making a choice.
As a man, born by a woman, once you get married, you have to play politics between the two.
And when you begin to have children, and you now have a daughter, then, the politics becomes strong because you now have three women in your life. You need to show us where your love lies – your mother, wife or child.
I supported Asiwaju (Tinubu) when he was in government. It was based on his focus and approach. I have asked myself why I’m going in this direction.
The answer is that any time I am not at shows or in a studio, and I interact with friends, we always discuss the development and happenings in society.
One thing will lead to the other, and I felt why not seek an opportunity to push these discussions to the main political space, to the people who make decisions for all of us? And I discovered that when you give political office holders good advice, they listen.
I remember my area in Okota, Lagos. And this takes me to why I seriously support Tinubu. There was
no development in the area in then. Everybody would just go there and buy land and start building.
One day, local government officials came and started demanding this and that. I said, ‘Take it easy with us.
If you want to get something from us, you shouldn’t force it on us. Show us the way. Do something for us. There is no gutter here. No drainage and you come here to collect tenement rate.
You can collect it only when you have done some things. This prompted the government to do all these things there. Today, the people of Okota have cultivated that habit and they see my relationship with government as an opportunity to push matters of the development of our area.
Today, I have become the bridge between the government and the people, he said.
