See Why Some Nigerian Entertainers Won’t Vote On February 14

In far flung locations across the world like London,
Malaysia, Dubai and America where millions of
Nigerians and Africans reside, Nigerian pop music
reaches far into the hinterland, exciting several
thousands and millions even.
As such, come Saturday, February 14, 2015,
some of our pop stars will shun the Presidential
elections in Nigeria to honour performance
engagements in Europe.
Already in the eye of the storm is comedian
Basketmouth whose annual comedy show falls on
February 14 and according to the humour
‘Every Valentine’s Day for the past 6 years,
Basketmouth Uncensored UK has held. Had I
known 6 years ago that the general elections
would hold on Valentine’s Day in 2015, I wouldn’t
have signed the franchise. Home is where the
heart belongs, God Bless Nigeria.’
Well, maybe Basketmouth didn’t try or push
enough to have his show rescheduled because he
had ample time to re-schedule his show if he was
truly patriotic, because INEC announced the
election dates on January 25, 2014, almost a year
As it stands now, Basketmouth will be leading
Nigerian stars like Wizkid, Olamide, Patoranking,
Buchi, Osama, Aje Baba and others to the GT
Bank-sponsored concert scheduled to hold at the
famous Apollo Hall in London.
In an attempt to pacify his angry fans,
Basketmouth has said that he’ll be in town early
for the governorship elections slated for February
28. In his words:
‘It’s quite unfortunate I won’t be around for the
presidential elections; my UK tour was signed and
sealed way before the election date was
announced. However I will be back in good time
to participate in governorship election…. Finally
fellow Nigerians, please ensure you collect your
PVC so you can vote; not having it is like not
having a visa and planning to fly to London. God
bless Nigeria.’
In related developments, Lagbaja made a
startling revelation a few days ago when he
shared a photo of his PVC on Facebook with the
caption: ‘Congratulations Nigeria! I don collect my
Voter’s Card! Therefore… No 2nd Term for
President Jonathan!’
Comedian, Bovi, on the other hand, has pledged
his unflinching support for Goodluck Jonathan. He
said just days ago with a simple post on
Instagram: ‘As for me and my household, we are
voting GEJ.’
