Are Nigerian celebrities demanding justice for Mohbad just to look good?
In an exclusive chat with Legit.ng, Gucci opined that celebrities lending their loud voices and influence to movements is important, and according to him, evil will continue to thrive if good people do not speak up.
"Everyone celebrity or not should alright condemn evil and demand for Justice. However as we know, some voices are much louder than others. A good example was the End sars craze of 2020 where only Falz and Macaroni led the charge from a place of Influence. The Moment Wizkid tweeted “End Sars” everyone else (celebrities) started coming out from their hiding place to tweet same, to post pictures to post videos and what not. These individuals weild a huge following and their voices go far. For various reasons many will stay silent or look the other way because of reprisal from government, undecided fans or industry sponsors, but it is always important to remember that evil will thrive when good people do nothing. So are they celebs or are they good people? I think we can have both."
Mohbad's dad shows where he lives
Legit.ng earlier reported that some boys helped Mohbad's dad cry out on social media over the condition of the house the late singer allegedly built for him.
The sitting room, room and kitchen looked unkempt and rough with old furniture as the boys urged Nigerians to come to Mohbad's father's aid.
The exterior of the building still retained most of the paint, showing that it had seen better days.
