There is nothing wrong in Mercy Chinwo performing at PDP’s rally in Uyo. Allow her to be. It is not by force for someone to support your party or otherwise.

I'm yet to fathom why PDP invited Mercy Chinwo to their rally today. A gospel minister in a political rally? I need the video to hear the songs she sang.
Does it mean that PDP finally needs God's intervention now?

The same PDP's Atiku who openly discriminated against southerners? Who didn't have the balls to stand up to young Deborah's killers? Thereby implicitly condoning her murder? I love her and I've been blessed by her music but Mercy Chinwo needs to have a word with herself

Mercy Chinwo went to perform at PDP rally in Akwa Ibom and the anarchistic Obidiots chose not to say anything but when it was Joke Silva, those anger induced fools were calling for the cancellation of Silva. Sick heads….

When are we canceling Mercy Chinwo for performing at PDP rally?

Naija people dey carry politics for head like gala! Mercy Chinwo performed at PDP rally in Akwa Ibom and some people want to crucify her! It is laughable because she is an artist doing her job and performance doesn't equate endorsement. So an APC doctor can't treat a PDP patient?

After campaigning for PDP, mercy chinwo would lead y'all in worship when she performs her hit single "god when?"

Pdp campaign in Akwa ibom is very uninspiring. The women there look tired and uninterested like they were forced to attend.
All Mercy Chinwo’s attempt to cheer them up with her vocals is proving futile.

Mercy Chinwo performed at the PDP rally in Akwaibom as per rally of the ministers of God. Fraudsters everywhere parading as ministers. Ministers of their pocket.

Me:👉👉 the place of gospel artistes or songs is not only in Christian occasions but also at political gatherings.👌
