Nigerian Artists Who Sang About #EndSars And Lekki Tollgate Massacre
Dremo, Vector, Dark Poet, Falz, and more Nigerian artists have made records about police brutality.
By Omotayo Olutekunbi
Dremo, Vector, Dark Poet, Falz, and other Nigerian artists have released recordings condemning police violence, but the Lekki tollgate slaughter is one that needs to be preserved in sound.
Burna Boy’s ‘20.10.20,’ a record commemorating the moment sadness of outright murder by the Nigerian government, which is still challenged today, was released.
Chike then delivered ‘Wahala Dey,’ a more calm and emotional take on the subject, before Headies-winning rapper AQ wrapped it all up with ‘Shoot The Messenger.’
AQ released his widely acclaimed album, GOLDEN, earlier in 2021. It was packed with compelling social-political messages as well as a powerful message about death. ‘Shoot The Messenger,’ on the other hand, was joyful, but in a dark manner. AQ is cheerful, tranquil, and agitated all at the same time.
This video bares its luster as well as the melancholy tone of the song’s plot.
