On Election Day, March 28th P-Square were in London performing at “Dance AFrique 2015” which went down at the SSE Arena. Flavour N’Abania, Tiwa Savage & Funke Akindele also performed at the concert, which means they missed the elections.
A few days ago Peter Okoye of PSquare took to Instagram to Congratulate Nigeria on a peaceful transition, and that’s when his fans went in on him, calling him out for not voting!
One user wrote, “After running out for election no need of coming home just stay there!”, another wrote, “Chebi u ran away during the election, all cos of money.”, and another said, “All celebs encourages us to vote thru d media and wen it was time to vote dey ran out of d country for d fear of violence using shows as excuse”
One user wondered if American celebs would perform in foreign countries during elections, writing, “I wonder if Jay-Z and the rest of d US celebrities will accept to perform at a show in Ghana when America is going to the polls.”
Actually they could, Americans have something called “absentee ballots”.
Peter got tired of all the criticism of him being unpatriotic, and reacted to it with a meme, which said, “Guess who ain’t gotta explain SH*T to nobody!”
