It’s totally uncomforting to aim to smear the status of both Flavour or Phyno, two music stars of worldwide acclaim. From Enugu, the 2 labored their distinct methods to stardom by dint of onerous work. Each have usually professed their affinity and romance with 042, their fond title for the Coal Metropolis.
Thus, it was a homecoming, of type, when the duo led different artistes and youths in the course of the #EndPoliceBrutality protest to satisfy with Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi on the Authorities Home, Enugu on Saturday, October 17, 2020.
It was additionally a mark of his humility and respect for the artistes and the youth that the governor got here to deal with them although he had met with the protesters yesterday.
Hear Gov. Ugwuanyi: “I thanks for the peaceable nature of your protest. On Tuesday (October 13), the Deputy Governor was right here to deal with you. Solely yesterday, I addressed you at this similar place, and in the present day, I’m again to satisfy with you. This can be a clear demonstration that I, (governor), the federal government and folks of Enugu State establish with you.”
When Phyno wished to delve into different issues outdoors the explanations for his or her gathering, the governor politely mentioned: “Phyno, please that’s not why we’re right here; if you’d like us to debate different points, then we will prepare for such future interactions.” The governor, as soon as once more, counseled the peaceable conduct of the protest and enjoined them to maintain it.
From the blues, phrases emerged virtually instantly that Flavour and Phyno had alleged menace to their lives by “authorities thugs.”
This was, to say the least, fairly dramatic and tragic. For a governor who has invested a lot of his vitality and assets, it was very unlucky that the 2 music icons would try to demonize this exemplary peace agent and bridge builder.
The incoherence of the unwarranted accusation is as profound because the fabrication is naked. Mouths are nonetheless aghast as to the motives, and questions are being requested.
For what cause is reality being turned on its head? Who threatened Flavour, Phyno and different protesting youths? And if sure, was it reported to the policemen who monitored the protest? Or was the baseless allegation aimed toward drawing out the governor for a unnecessary (social) media confrontation? In fact, was it a protest towards police brutality or high-wire conspiracy with apparent political undertones?
For the unsuspecting, this was a protest towards police brutality and extra-judicial killings. To the discerning, it was all a smokescreen to hold out a pre-determined smear marketing campaign towards Gburugburu.
Fact be instructed, it’s as clear as crystal that there are hidden causes behind the unfounded lies of menace to life.
However conscience, as they are saying, is an open wound. Info will stay sacred, irrespective of the sterile mission to distort them. Gov. Ugwuanyi will not be at warfare with the 2 music stars whom he holds in excessive esteem for his or her particular person accomplishments. For flying the flag of Enugu with satisfaction and dignity, the governor will proceed to accord them due respect and privileges as 042 Ambassadors.
Those that have their ears should additionally alert them to the inherent risks of getting used as hatchet males towards a well-loved governor who garnered 95.54 per cent of votes forged within the final governorship elections.
Gamesters must also desist from plunging the famed artistes into the abyss by encouraging them to distort details and current fiction like actuality.
In spite of everything, reality and falsehood haven’t any assembly level!!
