Some popular Nigerian singers have joined their voices to campaign against vote buying during the 2019 general elections.
As such, Chidinma Ekile, Tuface Idibia, and MI Abaga jointly released a single title ‘Not For Sale.’
Vote buying is underhanded strategy used by most politicians of the two major political parties- All Progressives Congress, APC, and Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to outfox one another during the forthcoming general elections.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that Teni D, Waje, Umar Shareef and Cobhams Asuquo also featured in the advocacy collaboration.
The song was directed by Bobby Hai, shot and edited by Paul Gambit and produced by Cobhams Asuquo.
‘Not for Sale’ lyrics entreats Nigerians not to sell their votes “because the power to change the nation for the better is in everyone of us.”
It also encourages a non-violent electoral process by all stakeholders, especially the electorate as they come out to exercise their franchise.
Tuface, the ‘African Queen’ crooner, has over the years, championed advocacy for a better society through his songs.
In 2015, he campaigned extensively for free, fair and peaceful polls with a song ‘Vote Not Fight’.
He had also released songs such as ‘For Instance’, and ‘E be like say’, all advocating for good political leadership and better society.
