Born Obianuju Catherine Udeh, the popular disc jockey was
the official DJ of Peter Okoye. However, the DJ gained more prominence last
year when she took to her Instagram page to do a live coverage that showed
protesters being shot at by personnel of the Nigerian army at the Lekki Toll
Gate during the #EndSARS protest that rocked the nation last year.
While most Nigerians praised her for her braveness, the DJ
has claimed that she is on the run from the Nigerian government.
The DJ and social crusader during her speech at the Oslo
Freedom Forum referred to Fela Anikulapo Kuti’s 1977 hit song, Zombie, where
she likened the Nigerian Army to Zombies, tagging them as ‘mindless zombies
following idiotic orders.’
However, her boss while referencing her speech stated that
she is an embodiment of a Nigerian youth the government is afraid of.
Okoye wrote, “Just listening to this speech by this treasure
of inestimable value. I’m so so proud of you @djswitch_You’re an embodiment of
a Nigerian Youth the Government are afraid of! Thank you for representing us
and making our voice heard! You are indeed a Heroin!
we will never forget what happened on the 20th of October
2020 #EndSars#ProtectDjswitch.” (sic).
