Shaku Shaku exponent, Mofe Boyo, has embarked on a musical tour of Delta State to promote her new song, Greener Delta.
According to the musician, Greener Delta will enable Deltans appreciate the challenges of climate change and also encourage them to key into the philosophy of not solely dependent on crude oil.
The drive is equally aimed at boosting agriculture in the state, as oil is not renewable and is subject to global political and market forces. The initiative is also targeted at reducing environmental hazards such as gas flaring and water pollution.
Speaking on the significance of the tour and the song, Boyo said: “Greener Delta was inspired by my first visit across the state.
Delta State is rich in oil, livestock and cash crops but our most valuable asset is human resources. We are also known for being accommodating, industrious and ethical.
“Aside from naturally being farmers and fishermen, it should be on record that Delta has the best branded local language in Nigeria, which is called Pidgin or Warri (Waffi) language.
On a more serious note, I wrote the song to basically showcase the truth about Delta and to also preach oneness amongst the different tribes in the state.”
Meanwhile, Greener Delta has been accepted not only by Boyo’s fans in the Niger Delta region, but also by those from other parts of the country.
