Popular comedian, AY Makun has come out to blast those asking why no celebrity died during #EndSARS protests.
He recently revealed that no celeb should be criticized over the protests by fans because most of his colleagues lended their voiced on social media and on the streets.
According to him, it is very unfair to pass the blame of the Nigerians that died in the struggle for a better Nigeria to popular figures, as that will only be a distraction.
He added that Nigerians should refrain from making solutions to the problem be as bad as the problem itself.
His words, “When we were yet to tweet about #EndSar,it started with “pls add ur voices”. When we did, they said “get off ur tweeting fingers & join d protest on d street”.When we also did & lost some of our youths in d struggle,they are now asking “How come no celebrity was reported dead too?”
“Passing the blame card to any celebrity is an inappropriate response to the death of our fellow compatriots in the struggle for a better Nigeria.”
“Even as we mourn our brothers and sisters, let’s maintain a proper focus on our set goals, and be less concerned about any form of orchestrated distractions. Let’s quit discouraging everyone who joined us all in making our voices heard, no matter how low.
Your liking or disliking any celebrity doesn’t count as much as we respect ourselves as human beings. Let’s not make our solutions to the problem be as bad as the problem itself.We shall all be alive to witness that NEW NIGERIA of our dreams soonest.”
