“Ellupee” Singer Stephen Muoka Feels Forsaken by Obidients Post-Elections

Stephen Muoka, the young man who gained internet fame for his performance of the “Ellupee” song during the recent elections, has expressed feelings of abandonment by the Obidient movement. Despite his viral moment and the perceived support from many, Muoka says he has seen no financial benefit and his life has not changed.


Muoka explained that there was a widespread belief that Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s presidential candidate, had financially rewarded him. Contrary to this belief, Muoka insists he did not receive any money from Obi. He added that the few supporters who helped him after his viral moment are actually living abroad, leaving him to fend for himself.

Currently residing in Lagos, Muoka is seeking employment and financial assistance, feeling neglected by the community he once supported.
