    Amidst all the killing and bloodshed all they do is party God must judge our leaders (i.e if we have any cos they are looters not leaders) and i pray the spirit of those young people find rest and God should console their family

    is this appropriate, celebrating at a time like this- especially after the Yobe massacre?
    Our leaders have misplaced priorities. GOD help us with good leaders.

    Please can these artists boycott this concert or ask for it to be postponed? I think its really inappropriate to have this kind of celebrations at a time like this. Some of the dead are fans of these artists. If not for anything do it for their sake.

    59 students killed in Yobe State this week, but we continue with Centenary celebrations as if the country is happy and all is well… *smh*

    I pledge to Nigeria my country to be Faithful,Loyal & Honest. To never stick to the status quo & To never go with the Norm…

    They can’t call off the event. They’ve poured billions of naira into organizing. They can’t pull the plug just like that.

    That being said, there’s really nothing to celebrate. A celebration of mediocrity perhaps. This country is such a freaking joke!

    Random rant: BN we need more hard news stories o! Please. I’ve barely seen any coverage of the Yobe crisis. Or the abducted girls still missing….

    Where is the human side of these people? Fireworks display amidst all of the pain right now in this country? May their tribe diminish and be wiped off the face of the earth. Amen. *spits*

    …may be if one or two of these young artiste would look away from the dough and boycott this event in honour of the departed souls, our leaders will begin to see the need for a new Nigeria…

      some disgusted element choose to kill innocent children just for Jonathan to councel the Centenary celebration, which has been fixed a year ago. His political opponent like you (F**TEE) are responsible for the killing of those kidies. Sorry your thinking is so shalow, myopic. go and educate yourselve then come out and contribute to national issues. those kids souls will rest in peace and God Almighty will expose you and the political opponent who are fuelling Boko Haram in this country.
