Flavour fights for Igbo unity, value, urge Nnamdi Kanu to remain strong
Nigeria music star, Chinedu Okoli, popularly referred to by his stage name Flavour has canvassed the importance of upholding unity, culture, and norms mainly within the South East residents.
Covered in a track of his just-released album ‘flavour of Africa’, the Enugu State-born artist commended the business-centered spirit of Igbos around the world.
He warned to be disturbed if travel to any part of the world failed to one Igboman.
The celebrated track, ‘Umuigbo’ appeared to be dedicated to Igbos, flavour warned easterners home and abroad to imbibe the culture of educating their children a native language, both tradition and norms.
He regretted that the people of eastern Nigeria are doing little or nothing to unite themselves in view to uphold a common goal.
However, flavour lauded the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu in his commitment to uniting Igbos, urging him to keep on with the struggle.
The sixteen (16) tracks album, which is edging most music charts was released December 4, 2020, and has met the longed expectations by fans.
We understand the need to see culture as the bane of a nation but Nigeria, being a secular state, is challenged by her diversity and loss of ancestry.
Recall, IPOB under the leadership of Kanu has experienced several backlashes by the federal government in the call for a sovereign state of Biafra via referendum.
The most weakening part seems to be the divided support from the region’s apex socio-cultural group, Ohanaeze Ndigbo to form a united front in actualizing the Igbo-dream.
