Labour Party’s presidential candidate, Peter Obi, enjoyed massive support online prior to the presidential election on Saturday, February 25, 2023. Obi based his campaign on the promise of a “New Nigeria” and vowed to replicate his feats as former governor of Anambra State at the federal level if given support by Nigerians.

Nigerian celebrities drummed up support for Obi and raised awareness about the capabilities of the Labour Party candidate.

The legendary Nigerian music duo have been at the forefront of campaigns for Obi and even took their support for him to the campaign ground by performing on stage during his campaign in Lagos State.

Particularly, Peter Okoye of the PSquare group squared off on social media with Seun Kuti, the son of legendary Nigerian musician, Fela Anikulapo Kuti, for tagging Obi an “opportunist” at the height of campaigns.

PSquare’s campaign for Peter Obi paid off in Lagos State, as he won the state. It remains to be seen whether he will win other federation states as INEC continues to announce results.

Singer and actor Falz The Bahd Guy has been known to be vocal against bad governance. During the #EndSARS protests in October 2020, Falz was at the forefront of protests demanding the end of SARS and police brutality.

Falz pitched his tent with Peter Obi and stated that the former Anambra State governor is the competent candidate for the position.

On election day, Falz’s voting centre came under violent attack before normalcy was restored, and he voted for Obi. Falz also shared the result of his polling unit online, showing Peter Obi as the winner of the unit.
