Nigerian Disc Jockey, Obianuju Catherine Udeh, widely known as DJ Switch, has taken to her Instagram account to speak on the protest of last year. She stated that the campaign changed her life, both for the better and for the worse.
She also expressed thanks to Davido for his role in the EndSARS protest of last year, for his song, FEM, which quickly became the anthem of the protest.
DJ Switch was one of the leading participants in the protest and was fully on ground to live stream the protest via her Instagram page on the 20th of October when soldiers violently dispersed protesters from Lekki tollgate.
Sharing a video that was taken exactly a year ago on her Instagram page, her caption reads, “On this day, last year 20.10.20, we were filled with hopes that young Nigerians took a solid stand.
“Through all the government’s antics, lies, counter protesters and thugs that were sent to attack us, we stood our ground! When the Nigerian government exhausted all their poorly planned tactics, they unleashed nothing short of evil on its citizens. I’ve not been able to talk today and I cannot imagine what others who had it worse, feel!
“I am so proud of our young generation of leaders and our celebrities that have shown great leadership. I also must say, it is not a one-day affair. This is a fight for the very fabric of our nation! My life changed on this day… for worse! But, I also believe it changed for good! I now know what it means to need something so bad and that need for me is a better Nigeria!
“To the youths who risked it all today in order to remember 20.10.20, you are in every bit Superman/Superwoman! Thanks to @davido for an anthem to remember! #endsarsmemorial #endsars #whogavetheorder #neverpostedthisbefore.”
