Nigeria’s popular musicians,Goldie, Weird MC and Sound Sulta have been appointed by the United Nations as Youth and Peace Ambassadors.
They confirmed this and told NET their feelings and what is expected of them. ‘Yes it is true. It is a peace initiative. I was appointed by the Universal Peace Federation and I will be the voice and representative of UN’, Sound Sultan, a respected songwriter and performer said.
Weird MC tells us ‘I’m deeply happy and honoured. It will help me serve my country better. I already served as a celebrity Road Safety Marshall but being appointed as a UN ambassador for Youth and peace comes with greater responsibility’.
Weird MC also told us about her appointment as a goodwill ambassador for an NGO called Project Alert. ‘We run a safe haven for women in domestic abuse situation. We counsel them and aim to reposition them in the country’, she said
All efforts to get to Goldie as at the time of this report proved abortive.
The trio have joined the league of Nigerians who have been appointed as ambassadors by the UN: Ini Edo, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde, Ramsey Noah, Timaya, Kefee, Chika Ike, Flavour and D’banj.
