Still, in the spirit of independence day celebrations, Nigerian Afro-pop singer and songwriter Kelly Hansome has released a Reggae Remix for his previously released socio-politically charged track Omenwanne. The track was released with an accompanying message that you can check out below.
What is really there to celebrate? Our unstable economy, corrupt leaders, low standard of living, substandard healthcare system, the value of Naira, political favoritism and gerrymandering, our global reputation, tribalism, media conspiracy, freedom of speech, police brutality or our hatred for each other? Tell me, why can’t we love one another or is love not the greatest commandment? Can someone please give me something tangible to celebrate apart from the fact that we wake up everyday more depressed and clueless? How can we celebrate independence when we’re still living in bondage? Who does this?‘
