‘I’ll sing and collect bread’ – Timi Dakolo replies critics
Talented Nigerian singer, Timi Dakolo, has hit back at those criticising him for performing at the presidential declaration of Atiku Abubakar, former vice-president.
The musician rendered a colourful performance of his hit song, Great Nation, as Atiku officially declared his intention to contest in the 2023 presidential election at the international conference centre (ICC) in Abuja on Wednesday.
Dakolo has since been under Twitter attack since Atiku posted a video of his performance on his verified Twitter page.
A number of the users tackled the musician for attending the event despite his staunch criticism of the political elites of the country.
However, others argued that he did nothing wrong.
Amid the wave of criticism, an Instagram user posted a screenshot of the video with a caption saying Dakolo is “endorsing PDP’s Atiku.”
“Let it be known that Timi Dakolo endorsed Atiku.”
In his reaction, the ‘Iyawo mi’ crooner commented;
“I will sing and collect bread, my guy. If it pains you well well, go sing your own.”Timi Dakolo
The singer’s criticism comes just days after former Super Eagles stars were lambasted for honouring the invitation to play a charity match to celebrate the 70th birthday of the presidential aspirant with All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu.
