Nigerian international music act, Innocent ‘2face’ Idibia, has cancelled his planned peace protest.
Idibia announced the cancellation of the protest via a video click on his Instagram page, Official2baba Saturday evening.
“Dear Nigerians, after due consultations, it has become clear that the #OneVoice Nigerian protest scheduled to hold in Lagos and Abuja on Monday the 6th of February is under serious threat of hijack by interests not aligned with our ideals. The point and intent am making is not worth the life of any Nigerian,” 2face said.
“It is a fact motivated by the need to demand a better deal for the ordinary Nigerian.”
“I therefore announce the cancellation of the planned protest. We will share further information in due course… I appreciate the massive support and I am convinced that our voices have been heard.
“May God bless you all and may God bless Nigeria,” 2face concluded.
Idibia had a few weeks ago called on Nigerians to join him in a nationwide protest against what he described as the unfavourable policies implemented by the present administration which have brought the Nigerian economy to its knees.
The proposed protest which was slated to hold on Monday, February 6, 2017 had received endorsement by fellow music acts among which are Burnar Boy, Davido, King Wadada and the area father, Charley Boy.
