The Nigerian election is upon us and many celebrities have lent their voices to preaching about a free and fair voting process as well as shunning electoral malpractices.

Most people in Nigeria would describe election periods as a time to be more vigilant, seeing as opposition parties can go to any length to win.

Entertainers in the country have also tried to sensitise the populace on the things to do and also to avoid during this period, whether through posts on social media, campaigns and sometimes through music.

Fast rising singer, Victor AD, has also joined the growing list of socially conscious celebrities. He recently spoke about the ills that prevail in Nigeria during election periods as he lamented about the situation of things in the country in a new song titled Why.

Victor also sang about the importance of people not selling their votes because they would suffer for it if an incompetent leader is elected.

The song is rather touching and would have one thinking about whether collecting bribe in place of voting for the wrong candidate is really worth it.

The music star also featured Warri artiste, Erigga, who also lent his voice to the cause.

The video was directed by Dindu.

See the video below:

Meanwhile Legit.ng previously reported that the Warri based rapper, Erigga, recently made a joke that Nigeria’s underwear has been used.

In recent times, there have been several harrowing reports about ladies undergarments being stolen by mischief makers for ritual purposes.

It has been claimed that people who have their undergarments stolen might start to experience tough times and find it hard to prosper in life.

Earlier, Legit.ng reported that Davido has been actively championing a discourse about the upcoming 2019 presidential election. He took to enjoining Nigerians to defend their votes. But even more, he addressed his fellow entertainers and asked them to speak out as they were powerful enough to subdue all forms of electoral oppression.

Davido’s series of tweets on this matter has since gone viral and has generated a lot of reactions among fans. One lady in particular raised a very strong argument meant to counteract the singer’s claims of solidarity for Nigerians.

The lady identified as @Angel_phase on Twitter remarked that, despite Davido’s political activism, he has not, for once supported his colleague Banky W who is running for a political post.

Due to the fact that Davido has not tweeted in support or in endorsement of Banky W’s political aspiration as a member of the House of Representatives, the lady was forced to conclude that the popular musician did not actually care about politics.

Davido is one that has always been vocal when it comes to politics. His vibrant political moves started in full force when his uncle Senator Adeleke became a gubernatorial candidate for Osun state. The 2019 presidential election is coming up in about six days, and in light of this, the popular musician has passed across one or two messages to his fans and other celebrities.

The singer who recently just held a sold out concert in London started by bombarding his Twitter page with graphics and captions that urged Nigerians to defend their votes. His strong message was pushed by series of videos as well.

Upon seeing his active participation in ensuring February 16 favours Nigeria’s choice candidate, some people appeared to be ruffled by his vehement display due to the one fact they felt an entertainer of his calibre should not concern himself with politics.

This got to Davido, and on his Twitter and Instagram page, the celebrity took to addressing the issue. He blatantly stated that being an entertainer should not cause him to be less active in politics. In fact, the singer urged other celebrities to speak out as they had the power to effect change.
