Nigerian singer, Kingsley Chinweike Okonkwo, alias KCee has said he does not need the help of a godfather to stake a claim for the governorship of the State.
The Limpopo crooner was speaking as a guest on a late night show on Cool Fm Abuja.
KCee who is in Abuja to promote his newly released album “Attention to Detail” urged fans to buy his album so he can finance his campaign.
The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has fixed Nov. 18, 2017.
Although the electoral body set Aug. 23-25 for the collection of forms by political parties, KCee says he will soon announce the platform he will be running on.
If KCee goes on to contest, he will be up against current incumbent Willie Obiano, Yule Edochie and Oseloka Obaze.
The tradition of godfatherism is one that has plagued politics in Nigeria. Many analysts believe that it is responsible for successive governments’ failure to deliver good governance, as they often had greedy benefactors lurking around to get their share of public funds meant for development.
KCee expects to continue singing if elected into office.
