Nigerian musician Peter Okoye better known as Mr. P of the P-Square duo, has seriously spoken against ethnicity, tribalism and racism that has become rampant in the Nigerian communities.
Mr. P whom in a previous news on Africa Billboard spoke about learning from one another has today, denounced the recent spate of ethnicity, tribalism and racism in Nigerian which is causing conflicts between various ethnic groups in Nigeria.
As a result, Africa Billboard has received a lot of reports from many others on various social media platforms which indicate that, the government has not taken into consideration to ensure sustainability of unity among Nigerians.
This has therefore affected the peace and buoyancy of Nigeria.
According to Mr. P, despite he being an Igbo man, he stayed in the Northern part of Nigeria throughout his youthful age.
The Nigerian superstar further lamented that, in addition to growing up, schooling and starting his music career in the Northern part of Nigeria, he is also married to an Yoruba woman though he is an Igbo man.
I am an Igbo man, married to a Yoruba woman.
I grew up in the north, schooled in the north, started my career in North. And today i speak Hausa language fluently.
Please this Ethnicity,Tribalism and Racism has to Stop?!!! Haba! What is going on???? #StopTheBloodShed

Wicked greedy leaders av bn using religion, tribalism & ethnicity to divide us. This is more pronounced in one region than others. As a survivor of d northern crisis, d horror of it remains a nightmare. We were robbed of d love, peace & togetherness we once enjoyed. It must stop.

Since Fulanis herdsmen started killing, rapping, destroying poor people’s farm land and forcefully occupy all sacred forest across Southern part you have not posted anything to condemn it all. Now the people have risen to say enough is enough you remembered to post.
