MUSIC: Burna Boy Addresses Lekki Shooting In ’20:10:20′
Burna Boy, Nigerian Afro-fusion singer, has come through with ‘20:10:20’, his latest single.
’20:10:20′, which is derived from the date of the Lekki shooting, is a song that examines the ordeals of Nigerians in the hands of the government in respect to the shooting of unarmed #EndSARS protesters at the Lekki toll gate by men of the Nigerian army on October 20, 2020.
The award-winning singer, in a post announcing the track on his Twitter page on Friday, paid tribute to those who lost their lives in the shooting.
“In loving memory and respect,” he tweeted.
In the less than four-minute song, Burna Boy reflects on the injustice meted out on the protesters, saying that the government has no justification for shooting at them.
“20th of October 2020, you carry army go kill many youth for Lekki. Na so WATER OOO WATER runaway my eyes. Nothing you go talk wey go justify the case of thеir murder. The chief of staff, thе commander and the army wey carry order. Mr President, Mr Governor, Godfather, gbo gbo IJOBA. All your atrocity. All of your corner corner. Make all the DEADBODY disturb you for your dream,” he could be heard pouring out his mind in pidgin English.
The Music art had earlier reported how the singer dedicated his performance at the 15th annual BET Hip Hop Awards to Nigerians who lost their lives to the disbanded special anti-robbery squad (SARS).
