Yeka Onka is sad! about Chibok Girls


WINNER of the first edition of the television reality show, Nigerian Idol, Yeka Onka, is currently not in a happy mood.

The soul singer, who has distinguished her style of music since she won the maiden edition of the reality TV show, is said to be sad because of the happenings in the country, particularly the kidnap of more than 250 students at Chibok Government Girls Secondary School in Borno State by Boko Haram insurgents.

In a new single titled Help, she urged the Nigerian government and security agencies in the country to do everything in their capacity to bring back the kidnapped girls for the peace to reign in the country.

The six-minute song, which was released on Limelite records, dwells on peace, harmony and love, among the citizens of the country.


“I am sad. I mean I have been very sad since the day the news broke that those innocent children had been kidnapped. It is even more worrisome that nobody knows the state of health of these little children right now. I know what motherhood is about and I share in the pains of the parents of these little children. This is not a war against a select group of people; it is a war against all well-meaning mothers in Nigeria, as injustice to one is injustice to all,” she said.

Yeka, who is still basking in the euphoria of the success of her latest video, Me and You, said she was working on a couple of new songs and videos, which would be released towards the end of the year. “I have been working, day and night, over my new projects, but I don’t want to reveal much detail now. I will be giving my fans something new soon”, she added.
