Following the declaration of some Nollywood stars to support the ambition of President Goodluck Jonathan in the 2011 general elections, more entertainers have followed suit.
The movie stars, led by Francis Duru, were joined by other entertainers at the Eagle Square recently, where they performed and pledged their support for the President.
Some of the entertainers include D’Banj, Wande Coal, Weird MC, Sasha, Yinka Davies, Onyeka Owenu, Felix Liberty, Daddy Showkey and Yemi Showunmi among others.
The team, known as the Goodluck Support Group Campaign, is sponsored by Princess Stella Odua of the Sea Petroleum Oil and Gas and coordinated by the Abuja-based actor, Francis Duru.
