"Freedom Fighters" has nothing to do with Biafra - ALB, singer

Freedom Fighters
Music artiste, Onyebuchi Okeke (stage name: ALB) from Awka, Anambra State, has thrown more light on his newly released single track, titled: 'Freedom Fighters'

The singer, who revealed that he have been in the Nigerian music industry for a long time, mostly behind the scene. claimed he wrote his first song in 1998.

According to him; I have been in the Nigerian music industry, mostly behind the scene. I say so because I wrote my first song in 1998, but due to circumstances surrounding me, I decided to keep the song for the right time.

As I talk to you, I have two albums that I must release, and I think the right time is now because my people say that ‘when a man wakes up is his morning’. ALB told Dailysun in an interview.

Revealing the inspiration behind his newly released track, 'Freedom Fighters' which coincidentally falls to the recent Biafra agitation, ALB says it has nothing to do with Biafra or it's agitation.

I made this song about five or six years ago. If you watch the video, you will see that it has dedication to some personalities in respect of their selflessness.

Regarding the Biafra angle, I can say that it was not my consideration; it is a mere coincidence. I dedicated the song to the late Chief Obafemi Awolowo and Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe for bringing independence to Nigeria; to Kwame Nkruma of Ghana, Julius Nyerere, Nelson Mandela, and even Mary Slessor for stopping the killing of twins in Nigeria.

It was also dedicated to William Wilberforce who stopped slavery in Britain and Abraham Lincoln for his emancipation proclamation that stopped slavery in the United States of America.

I made this song to encourage every selfless man living on earth to continue with his selfless acts and not for Biafra or anything of the sort. It is not about Biafra or Nigeria; it is about the world.
