Nigeria's President-elect, General Mohammadu Buhari has invited

Ghana's controversial Hip-life artiste, Barimah Sydney to perform at

his inauguration on the29th May in Abuja.

Gen. Buhari's political party, All Progressives Congress (APC) used

Barimah Sydney's hit song, "Our Money" for his campaign in the

Nigerian elections.

President Buhari chose the song because the lyrics in the song were

akin to what was happening in Nigeria prior to the elections.

Barima Sydney made the revelation on Accra-based Atinka FM last Friday.

"President Buhari has invited me to perform on the day of his swearing-in.

He has also asked me to compose a new song for that same event which I

have already done," Sydney disclosed.

Two years ago, the same song enjoyed massive airplay during

theLiberian presidential election.

The controversial artiste who played a leading role in last Saturday's

#Dumsormuststop vigil,was invited to perform in Monrovia after the

elections but the move backfired due to the Ebola outbreak.

Barima Sydney is noted for composing songs that point out theills of

society, particularly political corruption and poor governance.

Unlike other fly- by- night artistes,Barimah Sydney is known for

making his own musical arrangements; because of this, he has gained

respect within the music industry in Ghana.
