Peter Okoye, a popular Nigerian artist known as Mr P, has mocked politicians. He said that, Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s presidential candidate, has altered political campaign themes ahead of the upcoming general elections.
Okoye claimed that Obi is to blame for the absence of the customary political gimmicks during this election season. The artist observed that politicians no longer eat in classrooms or roast maize with women on the streets; instead, they have all turned to statistics and numbers.
Taking to his verified Twitter account, he wrote, “OBI is the major reason y’all are no longer roasting maize wit women on the street or eating in the classrooms with students for your seasonal gimmicks.
“He set the pace and made y’all return back to Numbers and statistics. e de pain una say him cast una job.”
Nigerian singer Peter Okoye, better known by his stage name Mr. P, was born on November 18, 1981. He gained notoriety in the 2000s as a member of the P-Square duo along with his identical twin brother Rudeboy, and in 2021 ESCAE University in the Benin Republic bestowed upon him an honorary Doctorate degree.
