Seun Kuti, a popular Nigerian musician, was lambasted by colleague Peter Okoye for calling Peter Obi, the presidential candidate for the Labour Party, an opportunist.
Seun Kuti, the son of musical legend Fela Anikulapo Kuti, stated in a podcast that only the citizens of Nigeria can save their nation.
He labeled Peter Obi an opportunist and claims that he cannot save Nigeria as his supporters claim.
“He hasn’t had the time because he started too late. You can’t be telling me that just because you lost PDP primaries 18 months before the election, you suddenly started a movement, and you have a plan for the country.”
Seun Kuti claimed that Peter Okoye has been taking money from politicians and participating in their campaigns since 2015, despite the fact that he was offered money to assist some politicians in 2015 but turned it down.
Peter Okoye, a well-known active supporter of Peter Obi, lambasted Seun Kuti in response to his statements.
Seun’s music, according to Peter, is irrelevant. He said that nobody would have known about Seun if it weren’t for his father, the Afrobeat pioneer Fela Kuti.
