The #EndSARS protests are still in full force in Nigeria and these are just a few entertainers who will definitely be remembered.
Not to downplay what others have been doing at all because in the end, it’s a collective effort among every single person on the ground and on social media, protesting and speaking out as well as offering help but currently, these guys have earned some stans for being vocal.
Wizkid did not hesitate the minute the End SARS protests started. He openly called out the Nigerian president, Buhari for his incompetence and disregard for the lives of the Nigerian Youth and also took part in a protest in London against the police brutality in Nigeria.
Davido joined the protests in Abuja and honestly, the fact that he was there helped secure the release of some arrested protestors by the Police. Earlier today, Davido met with the IGP where he read out the demands of the youth concerning SARS.
Runtown & Falz
Runtown has been acknowledged as one of the artistes who actually kickstarted the protests. The Nigerian artiste, with immense support from Falz took a stand and went ahead to protest with other celebrities on October 4th.
Nigerians first got mad that he was silent but he later came out to reveal that he was in the middle of a family crisis…his mum was undergoing surgery and he just had to deal with that first. However, he’s done amazing by setting up a relief fund for victims of the police brutality and financed #EndSARS billboards in certain parts of Nigeria.
The young artiste led protests in Surule in Nigeria today and even got injured when the police officers and supposedly disbanded SARS officials shot into the crowd of peaceful protesters. His manager who was with him was dragged away by the officials and has currently been taken into police custody where he’s being allegedly tortured.
Shoutout to Banky W, Tiwa Savage, Mr Marconii and many others who are using their voice and resources to help push the #EndSARS protests and give justice to harassed protesters and the influential people all pooling resources to make sure that their voices are heard!
