Some top celebrities that have denounced their earlier support for President Jonathan, especially on the removal of fuel subsidy, are Don Jazzy, Segun Arinze, D'Banj, and others.

The latest Nigerian celebrity, who vigorously campaigned for President Jonathan with his "Goodluck to you, Goodluck to me, Goodluck to everybody" song, Daddy Showkey, has openly lashed out on Mr President.
