2baba has shared on his Instagram page the video by Zanku Records pioneer, Zlatan Ibile with the caption "Same old same. Nothing has changed. It’s painful. It’s disheartening. Music is part of the ways I protest. Music is part of the ways I show my displeasure"
Zlatan released the new tune ‘Soro Soke’, a song inspired by the #EndSARS protest and the recent massacres across the Nigeria. In the song Zlatan says,
"I was born on the 19th December 1994
And since I was born the Nigerian government never gave a fuck
Fela died saying this
Different president same old shit
Harmless citizens dema kill
And them say we dey practice democracy
See bloodshed una no get conscience?
Using us against us, come TV dey talk nonsense
E pa omolomo fun olomo edakun kilon sele gan gan
All we need is change, naija must better, ode ti di dandan
Is it a crime to fight for our rights?
60 years no good road no light.
Go embassy see long line, people wan japa for their life
Ewo loshi ijoba tip gbadun kokoshi
Protest turn to massacre (gunshots), everybody don japa"
A similar song has been done by candy Bleatz, as he calls on all stakeholders who have a role to play in ending the impasse
