It also encourages a non-violent electoral process by all stakeholders, especially the electorate as they come out to exercise their franchise.

In 2015, he campaigned extensively for a free, fair and peaceful poll with a song ‘Vote Not Fight’.
He had also released songs such as ‘For Instance’, and ‘E be like say’, all advocating for good political leadership and better society.
