Ace talking drummer, Gabriel Johnson aka Gabination has paid tribute to Segalink, Ruggedman, and Dolapo Badmus over their roles in championing the #EndSars campaign.
The trio whom he called heroes for their role in ending police brutality in Nigeria, were celebrated during the recently-held Gabination Live & Pop.
The event which was also tagged ‘Celebrating #EndSARS Heroes’, was graced by electrifying headliners and was held at Skywood Lounge, Ojodu Berger, Lagos.
The headliners included Neophlames, Blackman, Paul Wise, Kay Trumpet, Yinka Jubal, and Dekunle Africlas.
In the course of the event, Gabination revealed the reason he took the mantle to celebrate the EndSARS heroes.
According to him, “the likes of Segalink, Ruggedman and Dolapo Badmus have been instrumental to youths’ inclusion in societal development and the establishment of societal norms.”
“There was hardly a day I am going to the studio with my manager that we would not be stopped by policemen. And it is because of nothing but the fact that we are young. This is not supposed to be in a sane society, these policemen would not stop you if you aren’t a youth, I mean a good-looking one at that.”
The renowned talking drummer stressed that police molestation and brutality shouldn’t be coming into play, adding that every youth have a right to live and to live well.
Speaking about Ruggedman, Segalink and Dolapo Badmus, Gabination said the Nigerian youths should idolise them.
“Our heroes should be idolised, because they dedicated all their time and resources to ensure we live well as individuals. And I am very grateful to the Zone 2 PPRO, she isn’t just carrying a beautiful look, she’s also carrying a beautiful heart.” He added.
The event was attended by youths, senior citizens and entertainers alike.
