Popular gospel artiste, Wale Adenuga, has slammed Ogun State governor, Dapo Abiodun, for making BBNaija season 5 winner, Laycon, a Youth Ambassador in the state.
Recall that Governor Abiodun hosted Laycon, an indigene of the state yesterday October 6 where he announced his appointment as a youth ambassador in the state. The governor also announced a cash gift of N5 million to Laycon as well as a three-bedroom bungalow.
In a post shared on his Instagram page on Wednesday, award-winning singer, Wale Adenuga, said the governor’s decision is “disheartening”
”I’m totally disheartened by the Governor of Ogun state making the winner of #bbnaija an ambassador of the state, rewarding him further with cash and a house.
No thanks to you sir for further entrenching the sad narrative that we are a nation that rewards trivialities and mediocrity.
Our values keeps going to the dogs!” Adenuga wrote.
In the same vein, Nathaniel Bassey, another gospel artiste also condemned the governor’s decision.
He said: “God bless you pastor Wale for posting this. Many are twisting this already. I believe pastor Wale is highlighting the idea of this and not necessarily about the person involved. I would personally frown at @wale.adenuga calling a human being a dog. And in fact will call him to edit it. But in this case that was a figure of speech. Not referring to the young man. It’s more about the idea.”
