Afrobeats singer, Seun Kuti isn’t one to back down easily from an argument.
The singer has defended himself after supporters of Peter Obi dug up a tweet about him praising Tinubu.
In the tweet, which dates back to April, 2015, Kuti had praised APC presidential candidate, Tinubu for fighting for democracy.
“I no know about Buhari o, but I know Tinubu fight for democracy.
In another tweet, he praised Tinubu for bringing change to Nigeria
“I wan thank Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu for bringing dis change, Aluta Continua”.
Defending himself, Seun Kuti explained to the gullible ones what the meaning of Aluta Continua means. He noted how he was clearly stating that the struggles in Nigeria continues.
“Shey una no read the tweet finish. After thank you we say wetin? ALUTA CONTINUA. THE STRUGGLE CONTINUES. And we ain’t ever stopped lol. This one na talk again? These Obidients are reading panama papers oooo”.
In another post on his Instagram story, he admitted that he appreciated Asiwaju, but it was for removing Jonathan who he despised.
Throwing a shade at Peter Okoye, he stated that he isn’t like ‘Psquare’, who performs for them.
“Yes I thanked Asiwaju for removing Jonathan who I despised with a passion. So what! Is that the same as Performing for them like a monkey?”.
Seun Kuti calls Peter Obi an opportunitist
Kemi Filani reported that for days now, Seun Kuti has been trending on all social media platforms after he trashed Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi.
Seun Kuti had stated that it takes the effort of dedicated Nigerians to save Nigeria, not an opportunist like Peter Obi.
In an interview on TheMicOnPodcast, Seun Kuti argued that despite his relationship with one of the Presidential candidates, Omoyele Sowore, he believes that no politician can save Nigeria except for Nigerians themselves.
The legendary singer’s son insisted that even if Sowore wins the election, he can not function efficiently in a country with PDP and APC controlled states.
He pressed on to highlight how Peter Obi is an opportunist who moved to a socialist party, LP, after losing the primaries at PDP.
Seun Kuti insisted that Obi is simply an internet president whose election starts and ends on social media but not in a reality where he lacked structural background.
