Elder brother and former manager of the disbanded Psquare duo, Jude Okoye, has revealed from his own knowledge why he believes politicians have been congratulating Wizkid and Davido on their international awards.
The congratulatory messages publicly started with Nigerian senator and CEO of Silverbird Galleria, Ben Murray Brucestating that since he has been in the industry, witnessing Wizkid defeat international stars at the Mobo Awards has brought him nothing but great joy. This message was followed by the message of the former president of Nigeria, Goodluck Jonathan, who appreciated Wizkid for positively raising the Nigerian flag to the world. They also received congratulatory messages from Atiku Abubakar, Vice President Osinbajo, President Muhammadu Buhari and others.
While some Nigerians are commending these politicians for appreciating Nigerian artistes, other Nigerians like Jude Okoye are questioning this sudden interest of politicians, concluding that this is being done for political benefits as 2019 is around the corner for another election.
His conclusion has majorly received attacks from people who believe he should allow politicians congratulate, after all, if they don’t congratulate people will also complain about it.
