TuBaba Says He Does Not Regret Cancelling The #VoteNotFight Protest
What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you hear or see the name, TuBaba? African Queen? Actor? Activist? Father? Living Legend?
From the 90s as a member of the now-defunct Plantashun Boiz to building a successful career as a solo artist, the brand, TuFace has become a household name to reckon with.
Although he has received accolades on numerous occasions, he entered into the public’s bad books momentarily for cancelling the #FightNotVote protest early last year, a protest he campaigned for.
Speaking on the cancellation of the #VoteNotFight protest, he said:
“The protest, I had to cancel it, for very genuine reasons. Many people were disappointed and I understand why but at the same time, I don’t know if they were in my shoes at that point in time, what they would have done. I don’t regret nothing, I just take it that it was for a good reason and even the cancellation was for a good reason.”
He also expressed his opinion on the recent trend of artists using social media to beef each other:
“Social media is like pouring petrol on fire you’re trying to quench instead of using water. Like me, I’ve always preached one love but it doesn’t mean that if person wey dey give me beef, even if I no respond, e no mean say I go take am from the person completely.”
