Grammy award nominee and music icon, Burna Boy has replied Sahara Reporters publisher, Omoyele Sowore who called on him to join in his protest scheduled for October 1 (Nigeria's 60th independence anniversary day).

The music icon who calls himself the 'African giant' took to his verified Twitter page to announce to his followers that he does not trust any Nigerian politician.

According to Burna Boy, all politicians in Nigeria are the same and shouldn't be trusted.

Burna Boy tweeted, "Everybody is a Fela fan and supporter now that he is dead. Humans are so funny, you politicians are all the same (especially in Nigeria), and frankly, I don't trust none of you @YeleSowore".

Sowore had taken to his social media page earlier to invite the legendary singer to join him in his scheduled protest. He made this invitation via his Twitter account.

In the post, Sowore, who is known for his activism and revolutionary moves noted that Burna Boy was often likened to the late king of afro-beat, Fela Anikulapo Kuti.

He also said that the singer is celebrated by foreign media as a revolutionary musician, but he (Sowore) has never seen in him involved in any revolutionary move like Fela whom he is compared to.

Sowore wondered why Burna had never led any protest in the country and took to his Twitter account to Tweet;

"Hello @burnaboy, everywhere I turn, people describe you as a revolutionary musician, the foreign media even celebrate you, compare you to Fela Kuti.

"But I am yet to see you lead anyone to a police station carrying a coffin for head of state! Join #Oct1stProtest #RevolutionNow".
