Paul Play Dairo
Legendary singer, Paul Play Dairo has stated that if the marginalisation of Igbos continues in the country, they might be forced to rebel and it would not end well for the nation.
The singer, who is Yoruba, said he likes to put himself in other people's shoes before analysing issues.
Using an analogy of friends eating a meal to pass his message across, the singer said if one friend's hand is held to prevent him from eating while other friends are allowed to eat, it will only be a matter of time before the friend who isn't allowed to eat revolts.
He warned that to avoid violence in Nigeria, all tribes should be treated fairly.

''I LOVE THIS COUNTRY , I can never choose another country over my country . I am Yoruba but I love all Nigerians , no matter the tribe . My career enjoyed more patronage in the east and south and North more than the west where I am from .
I am grateful for the opportunities all Nigerians gave me to have a shot at stardom and popularity . I don’t take that for granted , in fact I remain grateful for the rest of my life .
However TRUTH MUST BE TOLD , without fear or favour , without care about whose ox is gored . I know some will come out and say this should not be on the basis of tribe .
Yes but I analyse issues by putting myself in the shoes of those who feel cheated . It’s like having two of my friends with me and we are eating from a plate after being hungry for days . Then my friends are busy eating while they hold my hands and they keep telling me they’re eating for me . Please think about it .
I will be a fool to be quiet and stay hungry . But it won’t be long before I rebel and get violent because I am hungry yet I’m being held from having my share .
Whoever calls himself a Nigerian and feels the Igbos do not deserve a shot is just being selfish and unreasonable. The signs are being written on the wall but we keep thinking the terror now growing in the east will die down or will go away . Hmmm . I hope I’m wrong because this peace won’t be for long .
I come in peace , I believe in equal right and justice for all . GOD BLESS NIGERIA . sorry GOD HAS ALREADY BLESSED NIGERIA. It’s up to me and you not to UNBLESS IT . Shalom''
