Etcetera Accusses Don Jazzy, Olamide, Mercy Johnson & More as Political Prostitutes

February 14, 2015 12:30 pm

 Hmmm, Etcetera has come again. Read what he wrote today about his
latest ‘victims’, Nigerians entertainers – , Banky W, ,
Flavour, Duncan Mighty, D banj, , Ibinabo, Ini Edo, Mama
Gee, Naeto C, Joseph Yobo, Daddy Showkey, Kanu Nwankwo, and Sammie

According to Etcetera, they are political prostitutes for getting involved with political campaigns.
Some say Afro Candy is a prostitute. Some say she’s not or at least, not
yet. A few others say she’s a porn star, which is not in the same
league as prostitution. Porn stars are taxed, prostitutes are not.

So Afrolicious baybay, you have to up your game to get into the league
of prostitutes, if it is what you really desire. My suggestion would be;
instruct your agent or booker to get you appearances in any of the
political campaign videos, so you can put to use that floppy behind your
mama gave you. And if you are lucky enough, you can get cameos and
wiggle that thing around the aspirants themselves. You have to get your
bum (sorry your hands) bloodied to earn the highly coveted “Political
prostitute” tag. 

Now my Candilicious Afrolistic baybay, these are a few names of the latest political
prostitutes in the country: Olamide, Banky W, Don
Jazzy, Flavour, Duncan Mighty, D banj, Mercy Johnson, Ibinabo, Ini Edo,
Mama Gee, Naeto C, Joseph Yobo, Daddy Showkey, Kanu Nwankwo, and Sammie

I have been asked several times if our celebs should get involved with
politics. But today, let me push the same question in different words to
everyone reading this article. Do politicians making affiliations with
celebs prompt you to vote for them? For me, it’s a definite No.
Nigerians are not influenced by celebs to indulge in certain acts
because their favourite celeb says so. 

For instance, I like Kate Henshaw but expecting me to vote for a
candidate she supports in the forthcoming elections is like asking me to
start buying a particular milk brand because Don Jazzy endorsed it.
Puh-leez, things like that don’t cut it here in Naija. Naija is a
different kettle of fish compared to what is obtainable in places like
the US. 

The politicians using celebs for their campaigns should ask themselves
what on earth the average person has got in common with Dbanj. He has
millions and he may never have to lift a finger again in his life if he
so desires. And you think the boys in Okokomaiko who are not smiling
will listen to his unrealistic rants on TV and radio? 

Using a celeb for election campaigns is as stupid as the political
aspirants themselves dancing in their campaign musical videos. Imagine
Jimmy Agbaje and Ambode dancing in their campaign videos? Ok, I am
sorry, no imagination is needed. I feel sorry for the politicians that
Nigerians are not fooled by all the media images of celebs pushed at
them every day on TV. It has become so much that we can’t tell the
difference anymore between political campaign videos and the Nigerian
musical videos. 

The only cocktail of politics and celebrity that the masses are bound to
endorse is that of creating useful awareness that will benefit the
larger society. People like Bono have political views which bring
attention to real, humanitarian issues that transcend the established
political doctrines and have nothing to do with producing those plastic
karaoke like political jingles our entertainers are paid to produce. 

Those entertainers who see nothing wrong in frolicking with politicians
will say I am speaking from a misguided perspective. Go ahead, defend
your support for that politician. Tell me you are campaigning for
change. You can’t fool anyone but yourselves. 

Hey, my Afro Candilicious baybay, you go ahead with your trade okay?
Don’t let the criticisms of your fellow entertainers bother you anymore.
Tell them your porn is definitely a kinder and gentler version when
placed side by side with their political prostitution. Now, good day
ladies and gentlemen. Please don’t forget to tip the waitress on your
way out.
