The flux of entertainers going into politics has come to a grinding halt as 9ice, D1, Kate Henshaw and KSB all lost their party primaries over the weekend.
Nollywood actress, Kate Henshaw has lost her ticket to represent the Calabar South Federal Constituency under PDP (Peoples Democratic Party) while 9ice going for House of Rep in Oyo state lost out also though he denied that he’s lost and has said he’s still in contention. He lost out to Prince Akeem Oyewumi, son of the Soun of Ogbomoso. Other entertainers who lost out in their primaries include Dayo Adeneye, and Kenny St. Brown. Nollywood actor Desmon Elliot though won his ticket to represent Lagos in the House of Representatives.
In a very gracious manner, Kate Henshaw took to twitter to announce her defeat, and also made it clear that the elections were free and fair.
The primaries was conducted in an orderly manner. It was fair n transparent. Sadly I did not make it. My congrats to the winner.
