…And the latest Nigerian entertainer to delve into politics is…. *drum roll* Tony Tetuila!

The “My Car” crooner who used to be part of music group The Remedies, is reportedly running for a Kwara State House of Assembly seat.

Tetuila joins the likes of Nigerian artist, 9ice, and Nollywood stars Julius Agwu, Kate Henshaw, and Desmond Elliot who have announced their interest in political positions for the 2015 elections.

    Oh dear Lord!

    Okay at first I thought it wasn’t such a bad idea for entertainers to run for office, seeing as we’ve been clamouring for change and new faces, yet year after year, the contestants tend to recycle themselves. HOWEVER now I’m beginning to wonder… Is this a case of…

    “I really want to use my social influence to positively make my mark and serve my country faithfully ”
    “Abeg make I no carry last for this largesse as my fellow singing and acting colleagues don dey eye chopping of national cake”

    asin @aisha u took the word right out of my mouth. honestly speaking the only thing that is driving these so called celebrities (majority of them) into politics is clearly for the money, nothing more. what has tony tetuila done for the masses, if you can’t contribute or make a difference with the little you have, your darn sure not going to do anything when you have more (politics money laundering). I’m sure politics is now the easy easy way out to enrich ones pocket. its so ridiculous and yes I’m taking it personal because the more we condone mediocrity, sadly Nigeria will never move forward at least not in the nearest future….

    in the words of the First Lady of The Federal Republic of Nigeria, Dame Patience Jonathan, Diaris God! These entertainers are looking for an avenue to make money and acquire more power. There are very few good Nigerians who can withstand politics or be involved. Why can’t the entertainers change Nigeria with their own way? Is Bill Gate, Aliko Dangote or Warren Buffet a politician? What of activists who try to enact change, like Ken Saro Wiwa? Politics is for those who want more power/influence, money, and fame, and there is no good politician anywhere in the world. politics is for those with a large ego, and it changes people, especially if you are not bold and you can be heavily influenced. Governor Fashola is the only governor i know who is good enough to be in power because he is a strict and serious minded individual, and he was hand picked, he was never involved in politics before he was chosen to be governor by Tinubu and the people of Lagos State.

What are they bringing to the table and how are they going to acheive it,what people it’s time to wash this jokers of the scene because politics is not for them

    I think they should reduce the salaries of government officials drastically, like 20,000 naira per month, then every one will run away from government, then those who want to really work and sacrifice for their country will stay, nonsense.

    Am sure this is a big joke, honestly while i was trying to figure what was going on in his head, if he probably thinks politics is meant for hoodlums, it occurred to me that uncle A-a-a (fill in d gap) was once a governor, so…… Anyways am still very hopeful that Nigeria will get it right someday. Nyc day fellas!

    The funny part isn’t that he is running. It is the folks that will ACTUALLY vote for him; or the bizarre twist of fate where he ACTUALLY wins. Now that’ll be something to really laugh about.

    I still wonder why Chima Anyaso hasn’t come up with his political intentions. He is the kind of guy I should listen to if he talks about delving into politics. Apart from doing well in the Oil industry, he is also a philanthropist. I foresee the seat of the Minister of petroleum for him in a few years to come. I aint got time to reply these entertainers and their hunger for money. Someone like Tuface should be the only entertainer worthy to be listened to when he talks about joining politics because he preaches peace in almost all his songs, he sings what he could act while on any political podium. When you see a leader, you know one.
