Kemi Filani recalls that Timi Dakolo in 2021 expressed fears that the Nigerian society which is fast-losing value for life, dignity and respect may take its toll on the lives of his children.

Dakolo expressed in an instagram post, what he described as his greatest fear for his children as they continue to grow in a society that seems not to have moral values anymore.

Sharing his views about the sharp decline in good moral values among young Nigerians, Dakolo said certain comments on social media platforms these days has heightened his fears about the society and the people whom his children will someday dwell with.

According to him, “I see some comments on Social media and my biggest fear is that my children will someday walk among and dwell among these kinds of people and their children,” he said.
