The Afro-Pop star revealed this during an interaction with Arise New where he spoke about Nigeria’s 60th Independence. He also spoke about the great men who sacrificed for the Nation’s prosperity. To mention but a few, the “Ye” crooner cited Nigerian lawyer Adebayo Ogunlesi as a true reflection of service and gratitude to Nigeria.
No wonder he cited the Nigerian lawyer and former footballer in his hit single “wonderful”.
He said: ” There are a few hard Nigerians, seriously respectable Nigerians whom I would give my last blood for. “Who has taken it upon themselves and gone out everywhere in the world and done everything to become who they are positively,…there are so many of them…people like I named in my song, Adebayo Ogunlesi…
“There are so many footballers that have gone and come back to try and do something, that’s the only hope we have, because the leaders that were appointed to do this, are just not cutting it from this point,” he added.
