He told BEATWAVES: “The BNI has not extended any invitation to me. I have not received any letter from the BNI.
Nobody has called to complain about the video. I did not insult the President. I only used his motion picture to tell a story”.
Sidney, who has been able maintain the standard he created some years back in the music industry, explained that the song and its video was produced to educate political leaders about the hardship and frustrations the people who voted for them are going through.
He disclosed that he is ever ready to honour invitation from the BNI, police and the government to explain the content of his music video.
