2023 polls exposing hungry people in sports, entertainment – Nigerians slam Timi Dakolo over Atiku

Singer, Timi Dakolo, has come under serious criticisms for performing his hit song, ‘Great Nation’, at former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar’s official declaration for the 2023 presidential race.

Nigerians took to social media, accusing him of collecting brown envelopes, yet seeking to change old leaders.

This led to comparisons between him and ex-international player, Taribo West, who prayed fervently for Asiwaju Tinubu over the weekend.

However, some in support of Dakolo, opined that his performance at Atiku’s declaration for the presidency doesn’t mean he endorsed the former Vice President.

Here are some comments shared

@CelebPercy “Timi Dakolo is paid to sing, that’s his job. It’s like saying you’re a baker and then Atiku pays you to bake for him and you’ll say no. That doesn’t mean he’s supporting anybody just doing his job.

”@AkinJide21 “Everyone trying to guarantee their stomach infrastructure,no conscience.”

@MojiDelanoblog “Timi Dakolo can sing anywhere he so pleases. He’s a singer, his job is to sing. Whether or not he supports the person in question is a different conversation. Let the man get his paper abeg.”

@Sports_Doctor “Timi Dakolo is a singer and he just did his job by singing at Atiku’s presidential declaration. Taribo West is a pastor and he just did his job of praying when they visited Tinubu. Don’t support one and criticize the other, they both left with brown envelopes.”
