    Why Is Nigeria’s Government Afraid of The Present Youths?

    Youths

    DJ Switch, a popular Nigerian entertainer, has stated that Nigerian leaders are afraid of youths and have failed to create an environment in which they can thrive and contribute.

    In her speech at the Oslo Freedom Forum, the entertainer referred to Fela Anikulapo Kuti’s 1977 hit song, Zombie, in which he compared the Nigerian Army to Zombies, saying they are “mindless zombies following idiotic orders.”

    DJ Switch, who rose to prominence after filming a live video of the Lekki Toll Gate shooting last October, also chastised Nigeria’s Minister of Information and Culture, whom she called an “oppressor” of the country.

    She said;

    As an artist and a DJ, I listen to music a lot all the time and I am reminded of the legend — the artiste, Fela Anikulapo Kuti. He was known for speaking truth to power with his music and I am reminded of his 1977 song titled, Zombie. Here, Fela likens the Nigerian military to mindless zombies following idiotic orders. It was relevant then, it is relevant today and it is most likely relevant tomorrow, in the future.

    “The same future that they say is in the hands of the leaders of tomorrow, but what we have tomorrow are recycled leaders of today who have failed to provide an enabling environment for young leaders to thrive and contribute. But they chose, instead to kill us all off one by one.

    “This might sound outrageous to you and you might wonder why; I will tell you. Our leaders are afraid; it is as simple as that. They are afraid of a thinking, innovative and collaborative working Nigeria. They are afraid of every young Nigerian who, against all odds, have made it for themselves.

    “They are afraid of a ‘me’; the coconut head generation as we like to call ourselves. We are hard-headed, we are not easily deceived by propaganda. We stand up to our oppressors, starting with the Nigerian Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed.”

    Do you agree with DJ Switch on this?
