In an interview with CNN, Nneka talked freely about music, her life, her favourite foods and her country, Nigeria. The statement, however, that is bound to get people’s attention are her comments on President Goodluck Jonathan.
When asked on the postponement of the February elections, Nneka had this to say,
He [Goodluck Jonathan] says he wants to tackle Boko Haram, obviously every Nigerian is asking why now, he could had done it a long time ago…but I’m not good at the whole blaming game, I don’t want to blame anybody but I pray that he comes up with a good idea for us if he is an honest and genuine guy. But I know that Fela [Kuti] would definitely not be cool with him, Seun [Kuti] is not cool with him, and many other musicians who are very outspoken are not cool with him. (CNN)
Nneka who is known for her politically charged songs also said that outspoken singers would not have a good relationship with the President.
