Nigerian singer, Timi Dakolo, has reacted to the name change proposed to the members of the Nigerian House of Representatives on the 2nd of June 2021 after the series of insecurities in the Eastern parts of the country.
The House of Representatives on the 2nd of June received a proposal to change the name of Nigeria from its current name to the United African Republic, UAR.
While the comprehensive reason behind this name change is yet to be articulated publicly, Timi Dakolo is asking Nigerians what they want him to do with his patriotic hit single, ‘Great Nation’ that sings of the peace that can come off the land.
In a tweet on the 2nd of June, he said;
Now that you people are planning to change Nigeria’s name to United African Republic, What will I do with My Great nation song?! Una Dey stress me too much.
