Zikoko contributor, Kolapo Oladapo, created these amazing and appropriate album covers based on various Nigerian politicians  and their political history/careers.

Kachikwu’s ‘Pipeline Bling’ album.

Emmanuel Ibe Kachikwu is Nigeria’s Minister of State for Petroleum Resources and since taking the position as the group managing director of NNPC, he has made remarkable policies often criticized for being unrealistic and harmful to Nigeria’s economy which is dependent solely on oil revenue. Ibe’s policies are believed to be keeping oil marketers in check and enforcing discipline in the industry.

Bola Tinubu as ‘The Lion Of Bourdillon’.

Loved by his millions of admirers & volunteer mentees, Bola Ahmed Tinubu is the most versatile & ruthless opposition leader. He is the National Leader of the ruling party, The All Progressive Congress.

Shehu Sani’s ‘Half-fro’.

Shehu Sani is the senator for Kaduna Central Constituency of Kaduna State. He’s been criticized has been too “showy” about his “prison days” & also giving out camels to his constituency during a muslim holiday. Shehu Sani also proudly carries his symbollic “half-fro”.

Edwin Clarke as ‘Iscariot’.

Edwin Clarke is an elder statesman & “political father” to former president, Gooduck Jonathan . He recently criticized his son’s administration after his loss at the 2015 elections. He’s been tagged  the biggest betrayer ever seen.

Bukola Saraki’s ‘Rebellious’ EP.

Bukola Saraki is the Nigerian senate president who came under fire for going against his party’s mandate & taking the seat of the number 3 man in the country by dining with the minority party.

Diezani Allison-Madueke in ‘Diez Life’.

Buruji Kashamu’s ‘Extradition’.

Buruji Kashamu, a senator of the Federal Republic Of Nigeria, has been accused of trafficking drugs and has been under the threat of extradition. But he has somehow come out on top every time. He was even potrayed in the Netflix award-winning series Orange Is The New Black.

Lai Mohammed & The Change Band’s ‘Propa-Ghandi’ album.

Lai Mohammed was the All Progressive Congress’s spokesman . His words & speeches led the party to win their first presidential election since the beginning of democracy in Nigeria in 1999. He’s currently the Minister of Information in the new administration. All images by Kolapo Oladapo.
