An angry Nigerian man has called out top artistes, Wizkid, Burna Boy and Davido for failing to come out and address their fans on the forthcoming general election.
He said he was unfollowed all of them for not serving as role models who either declare support for their candidates or address their fans on who to vote for just a day to the presidential election.
The fan mentioned a number of challenges that Nigerians faced in this period and he was outraged that neither of the three music stars could speak on the state of the nation.
He said their action is an indication that none of the artistes care about the people as they could not even urge the electorates to vote wisely.
He listed problems that troubled the nation at the time which include the cash crunch, killings in some states and the battle to get new naira notes.

In similar news, Hip Hop artiste, Blaqbonez recently said he is disappointed in Afrobeats star, Wizkid over his comments about rappers.
He took to his Twitter page on Monday and released a statement noting that though he is a huge fan of Wiz, he cannot hide the fact that he is unhappy about how the Grammy winner addressed his colleagues.
It may be recalled that during an interview with 10 magazine the “Essence” crooner said rap is dead while arguing in favour of Afrobeats dominating the Hip Hop genre.
According to the Starboy Entertainment founder, the Hip Hop artistes mostly rap on the same beats, and they have similar styles.
Wizkid also took to social media and said Nigerian rappers are non-rappers who lack development and he went on to list the South Africa’s Nasty C and Ghana’s Sarkodie as the ‘real rappers’ in Africa.
Subsequently, Wizkid received backlash mostly from Nigerian rap artistes who either responded to him online or released diss raps.
Blaqbonez said he is not disappointed in what Wizkid said during the interview, rather what got him upset was how the Joro crooner subsequently trolled rappers on social media.
He described as condescending and degrading the attacks Wizzy targeted at artistes in the Hip Hop genre.
He wrote; ”The last few days had me reflecting, looking back at how far I’ve come, the Wins and the Losses, whatever rap may or may not be, it got me this, everything i have, the cult like fans who by far are the best part of everything.
I said that to say i’m disappointed, everyone knows I’m a big wizkid fan, maybe even a d**k rider on twitter but rn I’m disappointed, i am, I can’t hide my emotions, I wasn’t even mad at the magazine article, those are conversations I’ve even had behind the scenes, but the actions that followed can’t be defended, heavily degrading and undeserved but I’d keep doing my thing, carrying the most bashed and the most attacked genre on my back, showing the world what a Nigerian rapper looks like. I’d keep dropping these hits, classic albums, selling out my shows, however far it takes me I’m good with it long as i can feed my family….”
