Music star Sound Sultan has blamed Nigerians for the many problems in Nigeria today.
He said this while granting an interview with NET.
When asked “Most of your songs have been
about the situation of the country, which is good. What would you say
are the problems facing this country and how do you think we can reform
the state of the nation?”
He said “The problems of Nigeria are “Nigerians”! We don’t have
any other problem other than that, You realise that, whenever we point
an accusing finger at the government, it points back at the masses. We
have a common enemy, which is the government.
But we fail to realise that we are part of the government. Even if we
are not at the reign of power at the moment, one day we will get there.
Even the present individuals in government had pointed accusing fingers
at one point in their lives.
That’s how the trend continues. The people themselves need to
re-evaluate what they stand for, individually. It’s easy to say little
drops of water make a mighty ocean, but if every unit takes proper
charge and make significant effort towards the betterment of the
country, then we will move from this point.
So, if we talk about the situation of the country without the people
wanting to be part of the rehabilitation, we won’t succeed nor progress.
The number of people on government is very minute, compared to the
masses. Okay, for example, if we are able to fight and conquer this
present government and toss the corrupt leaders out of their offices,
what’s going to happen when the new one comes in?
That’s is my argument. I am someone that speaks for the masses but
the masses are faceless, I might as well be speaking for a thief.
So, I just want individual efforts, everyone should be prepared to
make sacrifices for the betterment of this nation. If we can get
majority of the people thinking in the right manner, then the country
You will find a man driving against traffic insulting another driver
that is plying the right route. We are losing it in the country.”
Who agrees with him?
