Nigerian singer Timi Dakolo has called out the All Progressives Congress for using his song at their presidential primary without his permission.
Dakolo’s hit song, Great Nation, was played at a point during the presidential primaries of the ruling party on Tuesday.
Punch Metro recalls that Dakolo was under fire for performing the song at the presidential declaration ceremony of the Peoples Democratic Party presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, nack in March.
