For the residents of Ojuelegba neighbourhood , a bustling community in Lagos, 2015 Valentine day celebration is definitely one that they will not forget in a hurry as the Spirit of Lagos, a Movement committed to restoring the lost glories of Lagos stormed the area with the sensational wonderkid artiste, OzzyBosco as part of its just concluded Do The Right Thing road tour.
The neighbourhood residents, who gathered at the cross-road under the bridge venue of the road show, could not resist the dancing steps and the sonorous songs from the kid artiste who is also an Ambassador of the Lagos State Waste Management Authority (LAWMA).
The wonderkid rendered some of his songs including the popular Keep Lagos Clean. Currently he has three music videos and 13 singles which includes his latest gospel song ‘U Reign’ featuring Midnight Crew and Dr Tee Mac (MFR). He has also featured some A-list artistes such as MI, Olamide, Flavour, Sound Sultan among others.
Exuding joy at the performance of OzzyBosco during the show which lasted for three hours, his mother, Chief (Mrs) Adah Mojekwu appreciated the Spirit of Lagos for providing such a platform for her son to connect with his fans and to further entrench the message of keeping Lagos clean, which is also his pet project.
“OzzyBosco is concerned with the welfare of children and seeing that every child, in line with the United Nations Children Fund (UNICEF) Convention for the Rights of Child, enjoys the rights unhindered. He also like clean and sustainable environment and this informs why he accepted to perform at the Spirit of Lagos road tour which in any case, conforms to his ideals and beliefs”, she said.
The just-concluded Do The Right Thing road show by the Spirit of Lagos was aimed at sensitizing the people of Lagos on the need to do things that conform with societal norms like making use of the pedestrian bridges where available instead of dashing through the major roads and endangering their lives; , keeping their environment clean by disposing of their refuse properly; paying their taxes, and effectively participating in the process of governance by obtaining their Permanent Voters Cards to cast their votes which is part of their civic responsibility.
Prior to the road tour, the team had used different channels to drive the ‘CHANGE YOUR THINKING’ campaign which has the primary objective of re-orientating Lagos to begin to think and act positively in order to restore those unique values that made Lagos a safe, just, prosperous and neighbourly place to live in and visit in the past.
The road tour which commenced three weeks back, saw the team visiting high human traffic areas around Lagos including Oshodi Market, Agege Pen Cinema, Oyingbo market, Badagry, Mushin market, Ojodu Berger, Ijesha Bus Stop, Pako-Aguda, Festac, Ajegunle, Oke Ira in Ogba and Okokomaiko among many other places with the message of attitudinal and behaviourial change.
