Singer, 9ice has given his reasons for supporting Asiwaju Bola Tinubu as the APC’s candidate for presidency in the upcoming general elections.
9ice revealed in a recent interview that Tinubu won his heart by requesting his phone number at a party. He remembered how Tinubu picked him out of the other performers on stage and asked for his phone number.
Given that there were other A-list Nigerian singers, the singer stated that he was surprised by the request. He continued by noting that Jagaban’s request had helped him realize his leadership potential and how devoted to the people he would be if elected.

In other news, Parents Of Slain UNIPORT Students Ask Linda Ikeji To Suspend Premiere Of ‘Dark October’.
Parents of the four University of Port Harcourt students killed in 2012 in the Aluu Community by a mob have asked Netflix and well-known blogger Linda Ikeji to postpone the release of their film, Dark October.
The film centers on the 2012 October student slayings known as “Aluu-4.”
The families of the slain students claimed they were not consulted prior to the film’s production in a statement released on Wednesday in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, by Livingstone Wechie, the executive director of a human rights organization called The Integrity Friends for Truth and Peace The initiative (TIFPI), which is set to premiere on February 3.
They claim that the development will revive painful memories they had been able to put to rest.
They added that the movie has “reawakened the already doused trauma caused by the tragic killing of their children.”
The statement read: “The attention of the four bereaved families of the ill-fated Aluu 4 incident have been drawn to a widely advertised movie titled: Dark October’ which was produced by a known blogger by the name Linda Ikeji as stated therein.
“For the records and sadly so, Linda Ikeji produced the movie without seeking the consent of the affected families and parents of the unforgettable Aluu 4 victims.
The question to Linda Ikeji is: Can you cry more than the bereaved or do you not have some conscience and humanity in you as a parent that you have become?.
“I have been instructed in writing through my organisation, The Integrity Friends for Truth and Peace Initiative TIFPI, by the four affected families, that is the parents of late Lloyd Toku-Mike, Chiadika Biringa, Ugonna Obuzor and Tekena Elkanah, to represent them and ensure that justice is done in this matter.
“This is to the effect that Linda Ikeji acted both of her own volition and on a frolic of her own as she failed, refused and neglected to seek the consent of the affected and families/parents of these boys whose names and the story of the Aluu 4 incident form the entire essence of the said movie.
