Nigerians drag Mercy Chinwo for performing at PDP rally in Akwa Ibom
Popular gospel singer Mercy Chinwo is currently facing backlash from Nigerians on social media after appearing at a Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) event in Akwa Ibom State.
When the singer invaded the governorship campaign event in Uyo, the capital of Akwa Ibom State, on Tuesday to perform as an artist, she confused many Nigerians.
The 32-year-old singer who got married a few months ago, reportedly wowed the Akwa Ibom State Governor, Udom Emmanuel, his wife, Martha, and thousands of other party supporters in the state with her gospel songs.
Some of the songs she sang include ‘See the way you love me…’; ‘Jesus, you love me too much’, amongst others.
“Sister Mercy, this is electrifying,” the governor enthused in his speech after her ministration.
Tweeps’ reactions to the news of her participation at the event have ranged from criticism to the idea that she was being paid for the role.
Below are reactions from Nigerians on Twitter
@MrMezio: She’s just a businesswoman. Even if you contract her to sing gospel song in a Shrine, she will come as long as you pay.
