Famous Nigerian Musicians, Phyno and Flavor have been in the news following the claim of taking N78 million from Dr. Ike Ekweremmadu to disfavor Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi in the midst of the EndSARS Protest.
Recall that, the duo were dragged by the Enugu State government which induced a brouhaha on social media.
Considering the data assembled From , Comrade Stanley Ezediuto raised the charge of the two artists taking N78 million from Senator Ike Ekweremmadu to help in battling against the gorvernor.
“WE ARE AWARE OF THE GIFTING OF A HUGE SUM OF N78 MILLION TO PHYNO AND FLAVOUR TO CAMPAIGN AGAINST THE GOVERNOR OF ENUGU STATE IN THE ONGOING #ENDSARS PROTEST NATIONWIDE BY SENATOR IKE EKWEREMMADU. BUT WE ARE WARNING AGAINST THE HIJACKING OF THE PROTEST BY STRANGE CHARACTERS FOR POLITICAL REASONS.
ENUGU STATE GOVERNMENT HAS LIVED UP TO EXPECTATIONS AND THE GOVERNOR WILL CONTINUE TO DELIVER DIVIDENDS OF DEMOCRACY TO THE PEOPLE.” “IKE EKWEREMMADU SHOULD NOT USE THIS OPPORTUNITY TO CASTIGATE THE WORKING GOVERNMENT OF ENUGU STATE THROUGH PHYNO AND FLAVOUR FOR HIS 2023 GUBER ASPIRATION. IF HE FAILS TO DESIST FROM SO DOING, WE SHALL REMIND HIM OF THE MANY ABANDONED PROJECTS IN HIS CONSTITUENCY WHICH SHOULD BE OF MAJOR CONCERN TO HIM.
THESE REVERED ARTISTS SHOULD NOT ALLOW THEMSELVES TO BE USED AGAINST THE PEACEFUL STATE OF ENUGU,” HE WARNED. HOWEVER, REACTING TO THE ALLEGATION, FLAVOUR’S ELDER BROTHER, WHO’S ALSO HIS BOOKING AGENT, BENJAMIN SAID THE HIGHLIFE AFRO SINGER PARTICIPATED IN THE #ENDSARS PROTESTS LIKE OTHER CELEBRITIES ACROSS THE COUNTRY. “IT MEANS THAT ALL THE CELEBRITIES THAT PARTICIPATED IN THE #ENDSARS PROTESTS ALSO COLLECTED MONEY FROM THE POLITICIANS. THAT’S WHAT THE ALLEGATION IMPLIES. SO, IN THIS CASE, YOU JUST HAVE TO USE YOUR COMMON SENSE,”
