    This is now a PR exercise for many of these celebs to stay relevant and be recognised. Many of them are just using this issue to bring the spotlight on themselves. I hope news outlets will stop reporting on these attention seeking narcissists. I for one will stop clicking on these news item too

    Seun Kuti you just hit the nail on the head. We are like Shekau when we turn a blind eye and closed ears to injustice rather speak up we say Na Dem Sabi Jare, Wetin Concern Me. Shekau wasn’t plucked from a tree, he was raised in our society. So let us all stand up to injustice and corruption and demand for a Nation we want and can all be proud of.

    I am going to comment on what Seun Kuti said, but first – let me take a selfie!

    Seun Kuti has spoken the mind of many Nigerians. Shekau is just as bad as our leaders who have no conscience and have allowed their greed to govern their hearts.

    some celebrities have millions of followers on twitter etc, and this campaign MUST be kept alive if this girls are truly OUR girls. I for one do not care about anyone’s motive ( as I am not a mind reader) # just bringbackourgirls! As for Seun Kuti, he needs to sit down, terrorism is not a Nigerian Issue alone: 9/11, 7/7, the 2 Michaels that killed the British soldier in broad daylight, the current bombings in Kenya. Here in the UK the people are putting pressure on their government to help rescue these girls, because they do not want the same to happen in their country 50 years down the line!

    I beg to differ Miss J, this isn’t a celebrity stunt in any way, we must keep this issue fresh and in the mind’s of those responsible to bring these girls back. Truth is, this government would not have reacted but for the wide level of solidarity and the unity of purpose displayed by the local and international communities. My problem with us Nigerians and the youths especially is our very high level of complacency , we wait for other people to fight our battles for us. When we see them fighting we still go a step ahead to castigate them from the comfort of our BBM’s tabs, laptops and whatever platform we have . We do not seem to realize the POWER OF ONE. If I may ask, what effort have you made in trying to support this cause. Some people may see this as a celebrity stunt, but trust be, at the end of the day, they are doing something, even if it may seem meaningless to you. And just like the chibok issue, if we can lend our voices, time, and brains to every single ailing sphere in our system ( Nigeria) imagine the remarkable difference we can make. A journey of a thousand miles begins with a step. We need to stop this ‘sit down look attitude” and take responsibility of our own problems.
