Ayogu Eze of the All Progressive Congress, APC and the incumbent governor and candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP visited his home in Abakpa Nike Enugu state.
This fireworks by politicians in the state was ignited by a social crusader and social media influencer, Charles Ogbu, who took to his Facebook wall to narrate the current unpalatable state of the Igbo music icon.
Mr Charles who is famous for always standing with Igbo course and never failed to lend his voice in matters affecting his people visited the living legend on Thursday, 8th November, 2018.
