Seun Kuti Slams Nigerian Leaders
In his words, Seun Kuti feels the approach taken by the Nigerian Politicians and business elites have been wrong, damaging and backward. He opined our leaders copied the whites because of what they see and hear on TV and have asked several questions that needs to be answered.
He said ‘’our own response in Nigeria must be different because of the level of poverty we have here. What is social isolation and social distancing when there are million of people living on the streets? How are they going to be isolated? Can they isolate in the open? How about people that live in face-me-and-face-you buildings, that shared same bathroom and toilet? And all those kinds of things with 100 people in one building?’’
Seun Kuti ended the video in anger, telling our leaders to come up with proper ideas and stop copying oyinbo (whites) people as a result of what they see on TV.
The video posted and shared through his official Twitter account @RealSeunKuti have since been retweeted by many of his followers.
