Similar to the presidential election, the Nigerian stars expressed their opinions regarding the Lagos governorship election.

Reactions to the Lagos governorship election in 2023 are provided by a variety of Nigerian celebrities, including Simi, Falz, and Adekunle Gold.

After being postponed from March 11, 2023, the gubernatorial and state house of assembly elections, which were held on March 18, 2023, again saw a disturbing level of violence, voter oppression and suppression, disenfranchisement, and other irregularities in some Nigerian states, Lagos being a major example.

Celebrities are speaking out about the “show of shame” in the megacity known as Lagos after the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) delayed elections at 10 polling units in Lagos due to a number of irregularities.

Artists like Falz, Simi, and others, who responded to the presidential election in which INEC declared APC’s Bola Ahmed Tinubu president-elect, have also responded to the governorship election in Lagos State, which features APC’s Babajide Sanwo-Olu, LP’s Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour, and PDP’s Abdul-Azeez Olajide Adediran Jandor.

Falz, who took to Twitter on election day, condemned the voter’s oppression and violence, as well as the activities of the electoral body, INEC. In a series of tweets, he wrote:

Biggest show of shame. Biggest fucking joke of a political process.

On the basis of which logic do you conclude that it’s okay to use force to get people to ‘vote’ for you ? All you supporters and enablers of this fuckery are even more despicable. You know better, but you are EVIL at heart You are VILE!


@inecnigeria will still come and announce a winner abi?? You must be CLOWNS.

Ace singer and songwriter Simi also took to the Bird app to express how tired she was of the electoral process. she wrote:

Sigh. I just want out.

Simi’s husband and Afropop superstar, Adekunle Gold, also took to the same app to vent on the insecurity that plagues the gubernatorial elections. He wrote:

Na Citizens dey do the job of security agencies now. Mad!


Other celebrities, like Ebuka, DO2dtun, and more, also reacted to the Lagos gubernatorial election.
