Tony Tetuila attracted criticism when his campaign poster showed him rocking his signature blonde look. Defending his look ,he told Nigerian Tribune
“I am not going to the office to sing, though I am an artiste, I am going to serve my people. I am not going to office with the tinted hair.I was discussing with some youth leaders who said I could leave the hair, but now that people are speaking on it, I have to do what my people want.”I only used the blonde hair to campaign because everybody knows Tony Tetuila with that trademark.
He also denied being broke
“How can I be broke? I am not broke, everybody knows where I am coming from, I am not going into politics for the fun of it, we artistes always sing about poverty but rarely do anything about it.If you know songs like “prayer for Naija” and e go better you will see that we only complain but we don’t do anything about the suffering. We want Nigerians to live a better life. What I am going to deliver matters and not the hair.”Follow @BeautifulBlogga
