Nigerian singer, Timi Dakolo, has slammed the All Progressives Congress (APC) party for using his song at the ongoing presidential primary without his permission.

The ruling party’s presidential primaries is currently underway at Eagle Square in Abuja.

However, during a solidarity appearance by a group of Nigerian entertainers, including Shina Peters and Danfo Drivers, Dakolo’s song, “Great Nation” was played as the musicians waved the Nigeria flag.

The 41-year-old reacting to this, took to his Twitter page to call out the convention organizers.

Why Use an Artist Song without their permission in a rally or campaign. The things people get away with in this Country called Nigeria. Actually this is the second time.” he wrote.

This is coming weeks after Dakolo was dragged by Nigerians for performing at the presidential declaration of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)’s flag bearer, Atiku Abubakar.

Atiku officially declared his intention to contest the 2023 presidential election under the umbrella of PDP on March 23, 2022.

At the event, Dakolo had thrilled guests with a colourful performance of ‘Great Nation’, his hit song.

The singer had also fired back at Nigerians then, who criticized him for performing at the presidential declaration.
