A Nigerian comedian and songwriter, Samuel Animashaun Perry, popularly known as Broda Shaggi, has expressed concern over the current state of the nation.
In a post on his verified Facebook page on Wednesday, Broda Shaggi lamented the division between ethnic and religious groups in the country as being portrayed by some citizens clamoring for secession.
Reacting to the current economic situation in Nigeria which is allegedly birthed by bad governance, he said “everybody has experienced some form of pain, cruelty, and neglect from the government and its law enforcement agencies”.
The post reads, “There was a time when the ‘WAZOBIA’ ideal was popular; this Nigeria was our own and it didn’t matter what region you were from.
“Every line in our pledge meant so much. It was sincere and backed with faith.
“With each tenure of the government, we realized that the people we trusted our nation with kept betraying us until we became a jaded people.
“It’s now ‘dog eat dog’ out here, the people supposed to uphold the rule of law treat us like we are the enemies. Everybody has experienced some form of pain, cruelty, and neglect from the government and its law enforcement agencies.
“Earlier this year, I put together a theatrical performance where I wrung out my soul and those of my collaborators. It encapsulates our desires for a better Nigeria, one with hope and love. I hope we don’t give up fighting for our land, I hope we summon the bits of our living selves and become “Brutus to their Neros”.
