Femi Kuti Speaks On 2023 Election

KanyiDaily recalls that the 60-year-old musician wa recently accused of using the term ‘zombie’ to describe Obi’s supporters known as ‘Obidients’.

However, Kuti clarified his statement saying he only expressed his reservation with the term “Obidient”, adding that he is not against Obi’s presidential ambition.

Reacting the continued backlash in a video shared on his Instagram page, the musician said Obi cannot be regarded as a saint because he once ran alongside Atiku in 2019.

He noted that Obi also paid visit to the likes of Olusegun Obasanjo and Ibrahim Babangida who did not change Nigeria and are part of the reason Nigeria is at dire need today.

Kuti added that his family also does not support Atiku or Tinubu who raided the ‘African Shrine’ so many times during his tenure as governor of Lagos State.

He said, “Why would I support Tinubu? Please don’t get me angry. I believe Peter Obi and Atiku are friends for him to be his Vice President if they had won the last election, so why should I not have doubts?

“My family has not supported any political party, we just sit and watch. We would not support anyone because we are heartbroken.

“If Obi wins and things change, then we’ll jubilate but no one should tell me not to have my doubts about him. I can’t tell you what to do with your life.

“Stop threatening me that you’ll burn the shrine or insult my children. Stop that. When Fela was against Abiola, you voted for him, same thing about Obasanjo.

“If you tell me Obi is different, but he went to greet babangida, Obasanjo, that makes me skeptical

“My family believes these political elites are part of the problem of this country. I have my reservations about Peter Obi and you cannot tell me what to think.

“How would you ask me if I like Tinubu, when he was Governor he raided the shrine so many times. We had a big battle with Tinubu closing the shrine.

“I just love to play my music and don’t want anything from anybody. I’ve always believed in the youth just like my father. My children are youths and I have to see life like there’s light at the end of a tunnel,” Femi said.

KanyiDaily recalls that Ghana president, Nana Akufo-Addo had disowned a report circulating on social media that he advised Bola Tinubu to step down and give Peter Obi a chance.
