Emma Agu was the only Nigerian artist chosen to perform at the Inaugural Ball on Sunday. Other artists that performed at the event include Beyonce, Bono, Bruce Springsteen, and Stevie Wonder. Now based in the U.S., Agu hopes that his countrymen will learn from the election that “there is no East, West, North, and South but One Nigeria where every Nigerian should be given the right to take whatever legal position one chooses to contest.” The musician is no stranger to political songs. During the 1980’s he wrote and performed “War Against Indiscipline” at the Kwara State Stadium to welcome the visiting head of state. Agu’s latest track, “Obama: The Wind of Change” is described by him as “how the frenzy of this election swept through the world.” Although the song will be available on his upcoming CD, Agu said that he didn’t write the song for profit, but to “contribute to the on-going happiness that has touched the whole world.
