“Next Time Nigerians Plan To Beat Up A Politician Abroad, I Should Be Invited” – Seun Kuti
Afro Beat Star Seun Kuti says he hopes to be invited when next Nigerians abroad decide to beat up any visiting Nigerian politician.
The music star made this known while answering questions from us concerning the recent attack on a popular Nigerian Senator, Ike Ekweremadu in Germany by members of the Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB).
According to him, he would be offended if an incident like that happens again and he is not invited to be part of it.
“What I would say is that next time any group of Nigerians are planning to beat up any Nigerian politician, and they don’t let me know about it, I will be very offended. That is the only thing I have to say about that because I was in Europe. The more hands, the merrier,” he said.
When asked what he would do when he gets invited, Seun Kuti ended it with a Yoruba parable which says
”The name that you want to give to your child is already in your stomach.”
It is a known fact that Seun Kuti is one of the most vocal celebrities in Nigeria when it comes to social topics. He is never shy to call out the government over perceived inadequacies, a trait many feel he inherited from his late father and music icon, Fela Kuti.
