One of Nigeria’s finest international singers, Nneka aired her opinion on President Goodluck Jonathan and his postponement of the general elections in Nigeria in an interview with CNN.
According to her, President Goodluck Jonathan should have tackled the Boko Haram insurgency before thinking of reelection;
“He [Goodluck Jonathan] says he wants to tackle Boko Haram, obviously every Nigerian is asking why now, he could had done it a long time ago… I’m not good at the whole blaming game, I don’t want to blame anybody but I pray that he comes up with a good idea for us if he is an honest and genuine guy. But I know that Fela [Kuti] would definitely not be cool with him if he was here, Seun [Kuti] is not cool with him, I and many other socially conscious musicians who are very outspoken are not cool with him”
Nneka is one singer who doesn’t involve herself with praise singing. She is known for her politically radical songs.
