Kendrick A. Christian, the current chairman of the Action Democratic Party (ADP) in Rivers state, has stamped rants over his Facebook page, berating the self-acclaimed Port Harcourt first son, Duncan Mighty. Read what he had to say below.
“PORT HARCOURT FIRST SON MY FOOT
I knew it won’t be long before we quit enduring Duncan Mighty’s lackadaisical and carefree attitude. So here am I to speak up and get whatever this comes with.
This popular adage “To whom much is given, much is expected” is the basis of which I’m picking on Duncan. The self acclaimed ‘Port Harcourt First Son’ has not been a caring son, not for a single day. His sense of social responsibility is the least you can find in the entire Nigeria Entertainment Industry. Even the least artiste in Etche or Borokiri know what’s expected of him/her.
You may want to ask me what we have given to Duncan as a people to expect much. I would state clearly that no Rivers State born entertainer has benefited from the State Government like Duncan, this is almost 16 years of his ‘steady collecting’. From Celestine to Amaechi to Wike, to his advantage they are all his Wene’s. He even became the major plug for Lagos based artistes to tap from our Governor; most recent are Dbanj, Davido to mention a few.
I carefully asked myself, how Port Harcourt has benefited from our so called first son before putting this up. Sorry, i couldn’t count any, not even through his Record label.
Fast forward to today; Artistes all over the country has been influential in sensitizing the populace on how to prevent Covid-19 pandemic, through their social media platforms especially. Most gave out arms according to their financial strength, but our First Son has done none of the above, i stand to be corrected. Could he be ignorant or unperturbed?
The name Port Harcourt should be respected and hallowed, let’s stop claiming what we aren’t at heart. We are all Port Harcourt sons, but to claim first comes with huge expectations of which Duncan has fallen short.
