He said: "The government has to be involved so we [can] have a realistic plan. Without that we are fighting a losing battle. I heard President Buhari say something about that, but we don’t need comments. We need results."

The rap star also criticised former President Goodluck Jonathan for not being firm on issues that concerned the entertainment industry.

He said: "Goodluck Jonathan had comments. But we need actions. We had meetings, we had dinners, we don’t need dinners [this time around], we need actions."
