Seun Kuti, the youngest son of legendary Afrobeat musician Fela Anikulapo Kuti, has criticized former Nigerian President Olusegun Obasanjo in a recent social media post. In his post, Kuti referred to Obasanjo as a “wicked man” and blamed him for contributing to Nigeria’s problems. He went on to state that anyone who praises Obasanjo is an oppressor and lacks respect for Africa.
Kuti’s criticism of Obasanjo centers on his alleged involvement in the sale of Nigeria’s oil reserves, which Kuti claims belong to the Nigerian people. Kuti alleges that anyone who sells Nigeria’s oil reserves will become a billionaire and that during Obasanjo’s regime, such sales were rampant. Kuti called out Obasanjo for what he sees as an act of wickedness against the Nigerian people.
Kuti’s scathing remarks were not limited to Obasanjo alone. He also condemned anyone who supports or praises Obasanjo for any reason. He believes that anyone who admires Obasanjo’s actions is an oppressor who is indifferent to Africa’s struggles and atrocities. Kuti asserted that such people are only interested in serving their own selfish interests.
Seun Kuti’s criticisms of Obasanjo and his supporters have sparked controversy and debates among Nigerians. Some have praised him for speaking out against what they see as corruption and oppression, while others have criticized him for his sweeping generalizations and lack of concrete evidence to back up his claims.
Regardless of the debates, it is clear that Kuti is passionate about Nigeria’s progress and sees a need for greater accountability and transparency in the country’s political and economic systems. His social media post is just one example of the many voices in Nigeria calling for change and reform. It remains to be seen how his comments will impact the ongoing discussions and debates surrounding Nigeria’s future.
