Social Media has been agog with the #BuyNaijaToGrowTheNaira campaign made popular by Senator Ben Bruce.
However, a poster on Facebook Tokunbo Akomolede, reveals the concept of Buy Naija Grow the Naira may have been brought to limelight by Afrobeat Legend Fela Anikulapo Kuti and not Ben Bruce.
In the song he says “Kilati ma l’owo ni Africa? Afi ti aba ra tiwa…”
Which you can interpret as “How are we going to be prosperous in Africa? Unless we buy our own…”
What do you think? Do you agree with him?
