Decline any political affiliations – Media personality, Kenny Ogungbe advises musicians
Media personality, Kenny Ogungbe urged musicians to decline political affiliations as the 2019 elections fast approach. According to him, most politicians rarely support the music industry so they should not be supported likewise.
In an interview with Sahara TV, Kenny Ogungbe said many politicians do not invest in entertainment, but “during politics, they will use musicians to gather people together at their campaign grounds, and they will use music to sell their manifestoes”.
“If a popular (artist) is involved, you will be zeroing in on a particular party. Let’s say Davido. He is known to be PDP. Anywhere there is APC, they see him as PDP and they will cut him off.
“If you’re APC, if you go to PDP, they cut you off, but if you’re a big artiste, I will advise you to stay (out) and allow them to do their campaigns. After winning, you now celebrate the winner, because the winner will be the one in government,”
