Nigerian singer Adekunle Gold has stated that his colleague, Timi Dakolo’s song, ‘Great Nation’ would have made a better national anthem than the old anthem which the country returned to.

President Bola Tinubu on Wednesday signed the National Anthem Bill 2024 into law to reinstate the old anthem, “Nigeria, We Hail Thee.”

Reacting, Adekunle Gold wondered why those in authority did not consider Timi Dakolo’s ‘Great Nation’ as the country’s new anthem.

On his X handle, he wrote: “No one thought Timi Dakolo’s Great Nation makes a better anthem?”

His post sparked mind reactions.

See some of the reactions:
@jachukwu wrote, “If they were truly looking for an anthem that will steer up patriotism and love for the country it would have been that song.”

@CarmillaXander said, “Absolutely yes, that song could make the least patriotic Nigerian stand up and go ‘sasageyo’.”

@Tyekooon opined, “The lyrics are too deep for an unserious country, hence.”

@xybox wrote, “It would make a beautiful anthem.

“When these old meddling politicians have left this world, I hope the future legislators will denounce this colonial special number of theirs and adopt ‘Great Nation’.”

@BFMPLUS said, “Yes but it still carries the disputable and derogatory word: Tribe!!
We should stop describing ourselves as tribal people.

“No whiteman ever allows himself to be called tribe.”
