Nigerian gospel artiste, Wale Adenuga, has blasted Ogun state governor, Dapo Abiodun, for making BBNaija season 5 winner, Laycon, a Youth Ambassador in the state, IgbereTV reports.
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 this morning, 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!”
However, many of his followers blasted him for using the term ‘dogs’. He later apologized for it. He wrote:
“Post Script: I’ve had so many comments on this and that’s to be expected. People have taken exception to the term ‘dogs’. This is an idiomatic expression and NOT the labelling of a person. My apologies to you for misconstruing that figure of speech and definitely won’t come here labelling anyone a dog.”
