Nigerian entertainers who won’t vote on February 14

As such, come Saturday, February 14, 2015, some of our pop stars will shun the Presidential elections in Nigeria to honour performance engagements in Europe.

Already in the eye of the storm is comedian Basketmouth whose annual comedy show falls on February 14 and according to the humour merchant: ‘Every Valentine’s Day for the past 6 years, Basketmouth Uncensored UK has held.

 As it stands now, Basketmouth will be leading Nigerian stars like Wizkid, Olamide, Patoranking, Buchi, Osama, Aje Baba and others to the GT Bank-sponsored concert scheduled to hold at the famous Apollo Hall in London. In an attempt to pacify his angry fans, Basketmouth has said that he’ll be in town early for the governorship elections slated for February 28.

 Comedian, Bovi, on the other hand, has pledged his unflinching support for Goodluck Jonathan. He said just days ago with a simple post on Instagram: ‘As for me and my household, we are voting GEJ.’…
