Lagos APC Primaries: Rapper Olamide Stands Behind Ambode
With about four million followers on Instagram, rapper Olamide may as well pull some weight for embattled Lagos State governor, Akinwunmi Ambode.
The governor is aiming for a second term, but his ambition has met brick walls within his party – All Progressives Congress.
National leader Ahmed Tinubu has since declared his support for his anointed – Babajide Sanwo-Olu, who may be gradually making his was to the top.
While Ambode, during a press conference on Sunday, called for fair play in the APC Lagos primaries, Olamide has thrown his full weight behind the governor.
“Four more my Daddy,” he wrote as the caption for a campaign picture of Ambode.
Olamide’s relationship with Ambode dates back to 2015 when he recorded the theme song for the governor’s administration.
The promotional song, ‘Love Lagos’, became an anthem for the Ambode government.
On ‘Fada Fada’, his collaboration with Phyno, Olamide also described the governor as his adopted father.
The governor has been seen at the rapper’s events, case in point, the 2017 edition of Olamide Live in Concert (OLIC).
For the fourth edition of OLIC, the state government announced a diversion of traffic ahead of the concert which held at Teslim Balogun Stadium, Surulere.
