Even though the primaries had suffered losses, the singer had won by a large margin.

On April 2, 2022, the artist first declared his decision to switch parties with a tweet that read:
“We must engage with Nigeria where it is, not where we prefer it to be. In 2019, we planted the seed. In 2023, by the grace of God and with your support, we will win the seat. The time for just talking is over. It is time to #TalkAndDo. I hope I can count on you. We move,”
