Nigerian Afro-Pop artist Tuface called on his fans Tuesday to march next week against the government and its handling of the country’s economic crisis.
In a video on his Facebook account, which racked up more than 21,000 views after just an hour, the singer urged his compatriots to stand up in a “peaceful and articulate manner”.
“The need for urgent solutions to the challenges facing Nigerians has become very clear,” Tuface, whose real name is Innocent Ujah Idibia, said in the video.
“Things are not getting better for the majority, we are still where we are, poor and desperate. I will no longer be quiet.”
It’s unusual in Nigeria for a celebrity to take such a vocal political position.
