Obesere,others to sing for IBB as Evil Genius romances top artistes

Reminiscent of the one-million-man march staged by the Youth Earnestly
Ask (YEAA) for Abacha in 1994, some Nigerian musicians may, once again,
converge to sing for former President Ibrahim Babangida who may be
contesting for president in 2011..

And as part of efforts to realize his presidential ambition, Babangida, popularly known as IBB,
is said to be recruiting some popular Nigerian musicians to help him
reach out to the youths as well as members of the grassroots. Nigeriafilms.com
gathered that the artistes would hold grand concerts in some parts of
the country including Abuja, Lagos, Kano, Kaduna and Port-Harcout after
his campaign will have officially commenced.

The source also told Weekend Showbiz that some of these artistes would record campaign
songs that would be aired on radio and television stations across the

According to the source, some of the artistes that have been contacted by the Niger State- born retired soldier include
Hip-hop music star, D’Banj whose song was used by the ruling Peoples
Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2007 general elections; Peter and Paul
Okoye, otherwise known as PSquare; the Yahoozee crooner, Olu maintain;
Banky W; Gongo Aso crooner, 9ice; Abass Akande Obesere; Sule Adio
Atawewe and many others.

Obesere, who enjoyed great patronage from the former president during his last presidential campaign in 2007, said, “I remain the only
artiste on the bill of the Babangida campaign. I am still in good
contact with members of the campaign group and I know that no other
musician has been approached for this purpose. In fact, I have been
given the mandate to negotiate with any artiste that I know will do
them good. I am the official musician for the Ibrahim Babangida
campaign in 2011.”

Also, in a separate interview with Olu Maintain, he denied being approached by Babangida or any of his
loyalists. “I also heard that they are talking to some musicians for
his campaign, but I have not been approached yet. If they come, I will
accept. Why won’t I? I’m a musician and I will sing for anybody who is
ready to pay my bill.”
