Veteran Music Label Executive Kenny Keke Ogungbe has come out of oblivion to warn Nigerian Artiste to be wary of politicians and their campaigns. He warned them not to partake in their rallies, campaigns and not to express preference for a candidate openly.
He also said that the Politicians do not care about the growth and progress of the Entertainment Industry at large, stating that the growth the industry has amassed is due to the commitment and contributions of private individuals, despite their cry for help from the government.
Kenny Ogungbe also added that artistes should be weary when politicians use their music to sell their manifestos.
“During politics, they will use musicians to gather people together at their campaign grounds, and they will use music to sell their manifestoes,” Kenny Ogungbe said.
The founder of Kennis Music also advised musicians not to get involved or align with political parties, as their alignment can be used against them by other vindictive political parties.
“If a popular one (artist) is involved, you will be zeroing in on a particular party. Let’s say Davido. He is known to be PDP. Anywhere there is APC, they see him as PDP and they will cut him off.
“If you’re APC, if you go to PDP, they cut you off, but if you’re a big artiste, I will advise you to stay (out) and allow them to do their campaigns. After winning, you now celebrate the winner, because the winner will be the one in government,” he added.
