Wizkid was a guest at The Beats 99.9fm where he spoke to on-air personality, Osi Suave about his newly released album, ‘Made In Lagos’.
During the interview, he was asked why he decided to lend his voice to the End SARS movement. In reply, he said that everyone he knows has been affected by the police unit so he had to speak out.
He said: “I believe if you are young and you grew up in Nigeria there is no way you have not suffered police brutality except your father is Obasanjo. It’s an issue that affects everyone. It affects you, it affects me, it affects my family, it affects my friends,” he said.
“I have producers and cousins that are on the road every day. I feel like it is going to be a big shame for anyone in this generation in any field you do not open your mouth and speak about the things that are happening in Nigeria. This SARS situation is even our smallest problem in Nigeria that’s why we should not be scared.”
“Imagine police killing someone as the smallest problem in Nigeria? We don’t have food, we don’t have light. The things that we don’t have is even too much. I feel like it has to get to a point where the people know their power and speak out about certain things. I’m just doing my own little part even though I’m not Martin Luther King. I’m just speaking about something that concerns me personally.”
