Popularly Nigerian comedian, Mr Macaroni, has stopped taking promotional jobs from his clients in order to focus on the ongoing ENDSARS protest.
Debo Adebayo known as Mr Macaroni is an online comedian, actor, and skit-maker who is amongst the celebrities championing the #ENDSARS protest in Lagos.
He wrote on Twitter: “Not taking any job for now pls!!! Pending jobs are on hold!!! What am I working for when the safety of my life isn’t guaranteed??? Please bear in mind that the only thing I am committed to at the moment is this movement by the Nigerian youths! My voice, my body, my craft, and every other thing is committed! If it is not related to #EndSWAT #EndPoliceBrutalityinNigeria let’s put it on hold!!!
“The government does little or nothing to better the lives of Youths in this country! Nigerian Youths struggle day after day to earn a living for themselves!! We do everything by ourselves yet you people slaughter and murder us!! Unprovoked!! Never again!!! #EndSWAT #EndSARS”.
In the same vein, Nigerian singer Timi Dakolo also noted that the #ENDSARS protests is an opportunity for young Nigerians to reform Nigeria.
“This opportunity that has been presented to Us must not be wasted, I repeat, It must not be wasted. We may never have another in this lifetime. A golden opportunity to level the playground for every Nigerian. We need thinkers and structure to pull this thing through.
Keep your eyes on the goal, please don’t lose focus. We are this together. It is Our Nigeria”.
