Release of the “oriki” music video by actor Taiwo Hassan for Tinubu
A video of veteran actor Taiwo Hassan who is popularly known as Ogogo chanting in Yoruba for the Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Bola Tinubu is presently going viral on social media.
In the video, we see Taiwo Hassan chanting in Yoruba for the win of Bola Ahmed Tinubu; an act that has sparked mixed reactions amongst his followers.
One Tobiloba wrote “I believed this man to have dignity and honor! Even though we have the right to vote for whomever we choose, given the current state of the country, only those who benefit from the APC government’s corrupt system will support them. Mo fi olorun Oba sęlęri, Òfò ni gbogbo wan ma see.”
One Timothy wrote “It’s not about poverty. Many of these Yoruba celebrities have benefited from Tinubu. So I think they are just trying to be loyal.”
One chic wrote “Honestly, I am not even bothered by their choice of candidate. After all, it is an individual choice. We all can’t support the same person. We all know the reason behind the support, so I don’t care. Na who dey rate them dey dey disappointed. Bhet, bhet, even though, even though!!! What in the kulodo is this???? How do they feel, seeing the silliness that they’re posting? Aren’t they supposed to be artistic, creative people???? One go nkd for beach, now this sorry excuse of ewì. He say, ‘I mean the poplar of midnight’. Daddy, ṣe ẹ wa ok bayii????”
