Damini Ogulu, renowned Nigerian singer known as Burna Boy and a Grammy award winner, has criticized the Nigerian Federal Government’s proposal to intervene militarily in Niger Republic following a coup in the Sahelian nation. The artist, who refers to himself as ‘Odogwu,’ expressed his disapproval during an Instagram Live session on Tuesday.
Burna Boy voiced his concerns about the government’s plan to engage in military actions while grappling with the ongoing fuel subsidy crisis. Speaking in Pidgin English, he humorously questioned the practicality of venturing into a neighbouring country for warfare while facing fuel scarcity.
He said, “What’s happening? They say we want to go to war like this [laughs]. Fuel is not even available, and you want to go to war. How do you plan to reach the battlefield? Will you use… what do they use that generator for? Gas generator. It surprises me. Nigeria’s troubles never seem to end.”
Burna Boy’s remarks shed light on the challenges and contradictions facing the country, highlighting the potential impracticality of military intervention when the nation is already dealing with pressing issues such as fuel shortages.
