In 2014 Abolore Akande, popular known as 9ice announced his entry into politics.

He was quoted to have said: “I have been interested in party politics for quite some time now. But it is just now that I have decided to take the interest to another level by contesting to be a lawmaker representing my people of Ogbomosho South, North and Orire Constituency in Oyo State at the House of Representatives.”

Things did not, however, work out as planned for the talented lyrical singer as he wasn’t able to kickstart his political career.

Perhaps, as a result of this, 9ice has said that he is no longer interested in politics.

9ice said: “Nigerians are not ready for real change I want to do politics but the country is not ready, the environment is not ready, even the people are not ready. I am not Jesus Christ. Why do I want to fight for people that are not ready? Let me just focus on myself and my family. It’s not worth it. It will take the grace of Almighty God to reshape Nigeria into what we dream of. It’s not by intellectual capacity. We have tried that and it’s not working.”
