Singer loses APC ticket to Lai Mohammed's son

Gospel singer Kenny Saint Brown has been served a bitter political lesson as she has lost in her bid to vie for a seat in the Lagos State House of Assembly.

The dreams of gospel singer, Kenny Saint Best, to vie for a seat in the Lagos State House of Assembly to represent Ikeja 1 State Constituency, has been truncated at the All Progressive Party, APC, primaries held today. The singer who looked as if she was coasting home to victory lost to Folajimi Lai Mohammaed, the son of the party's National Publicity Secretary, Lai Mohammed.

At the primaries to elect those who will run on the party's platform was held today, 2 December, 2014, and Mohammed, the Managing Director of Knightsbridge Dredging Limited trounced the budding politician to a distant second, in what most people feel has been a predetermine primaries.

Another winner in today's primaries is Damola Kasumu, the grandson of the late Iyaloja General of Lagos, Abibat Mogaji, who will represent Ikeja Constituency 2.

With this turn around, it is not certain if Brown will still be a member of the party going by what observers say is a huge disappointment for her.

Brown was one out of the many entertainers who decided to try their hands in politics. The likes of Desmond Elliot, 9ice, Kate Henshaw, Bob Manuel-Udokwu, Ejike Methuselah, Tony Tetuila and Kenneth Okonkwo, will know their fates in the days to come.
