Gossipinfo Celebrities News recalls Falz had bemoaned the state of things in the country.
The singer revealed that he had become tired of feeling sad, ashamed, and helpless.
Falz stated this in response to Senator Shehu Sani’s claim that despite spending more than N4 trillion on defence over a seven-year period, the nation is still at the mercy of terrorists.
“The Government spent over N4 trillion naira on defence in Seven years, including a Billion Dollar for Tucano jets and another close to a Billion Dollar for attack helicopters,” Shehu wrote in a tweet. “And we are still living at the mercy of a roving gang of terrorists on motorcycles,” he continued.
Reacting to it, Falz questioned when statement like this became too ridiculous.
“At what point those this shit become too ridiculous?!
I’m really tired of feeling sad, ashamed and helpless”.
