Why musicians must always speak for the people – Harrysong

Harrysong's Kingmaker album due to arrive on the 26th of November, 2017

Harrison Okiri, popularly known as Harrysong, earlier in the week took to his Instagram to call out his state governor, Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State, over incessant communal clashes in the state.

According to him, the government has not done enough to stop the loss of lives.

Harrysong told Sunday Scoop, “It is a cause that we are fighting, but we don’t want to say anything now. I’m going to Delta State on Sunday (today), and I’m going to bring back the final report that we can now talk about. The thing is trending, and everybody has been calling me both from the state and outside. I will go to the communities that are fighting, and I will make sure that I meet with the authorities concerned. It is not an easy cause but we will face it until the end.”

He insisted that entertainers were the voices of the people, urging entertainers to always speak up because the world would hear them quicker and listen better.

“The roles that we play in the lives of young people and the society at large cannot be overstated. We should speak up for our states, country and the world in general. Every purposeful entertainer should stand for their people to make their voices heard in the necessary places.”
