Singer Omawumi reveals her favourite Presidential candidate

Omawumi Megbele known by her stage name Omawumi. She is a Nigerian singer-songwriter and actress of Itsekiri ethnicity has revealed who she would have voted for in the forthcoming presidential election. 

When former Minister of Education and presidential candidate of the Allied Congress Party of Nigeria, ACP, Dr. Obiageli Ezekwesili, withdrew from the presidential race ahead of the forthcoming February 2019 general elections, many were disappointed because they believed in her ideals. 

Omawumi Megbele, who spoke to Showtime on why she would have voted for her if she hadn’t withdrawn from the race. She said: ““I listened to her during the presidential debate; her views, the things she said struck me, not because she is a woman but because she is experienced. She was a former minister, she has always been involved and she always speaks out when things go wrong. 

She was the major propaganda of the ‘Bring back our girls’ campaign; so it’s not because she is a woman. It’s because I feel that of all of them contesting for presidency, she is the best person for the job. But that’s my opinion, everybody is entitled to one”, she said.

That is exactly what is happening now; when women sit down together, what they talk about is no longer domestic issues. What we talk about is why politicians think they can misbehave and not be held accountable. When women are being more interested in what is going on and then we can continue to spread the conversation. The more it spreads the more women we will find to be interested in knowing and being a part of the movement. It’s not always easy but we will get there”, she noted. 

 Omawumi has proven that she is not only a talented musician, she can also act as well. Omawumi played a minor role in the 2009 edition of the V-Monologues, a play that reflects the negative issues affecting women in Nigeria. She also starred in the musical play Olurombi.
