Nigerian hip hop duo, Show Dem Camp recently released a political satire on the upcoming elections. According to the duo:
“2011 is a very important year in Nigeria’s history as we hope the nations forthcoming election will highlight the voice of the people in a country so blessed yet stagnant from years of misrule.
The youth of Nigeria hope, pray and long for a change from the norm and aim to make our voices heard this go round
We believe social commentary is an important part of this process and feel we as artists have a responsibility to use our voice to comment on what we see in front of us
So appalled is SDC Show Dem Camp’s humorous take on the current election process in Nigeria.
Because we participate in the process doesn’t mean we do not see the ruse that unfolds in our country everyday
Your Vote is your strength, Ensure you turn out to vote and exercise this strength.
We hope you find a dose of reality somewhere within the humour…”
