‘Lagos is white man’s land’ – Seun Kuti

Grammy-nominated Afrobeat singer, Oluseun Anikulapo Kuti, better known as Seun Kuti has asserted that “Lagos is white man’s land.”

In a video shared on his Instagram page, Seun, son of late Afrobeat pioneer, Fela Kuti, stated that, despite the current trend of different Nigerian ethnic groups asserting ownership of Lagos, the true owners are foreigners who possess the majority of the city’s real estate and wealth.

Seun also lamented that the economy of Lagos and Nigerians in general was being controlled by “foreigners.”

In the video, he said

“Why are you guys shouting, ‘Lagos is Igbo land, Lagos is Yoruba land?’ Lagos is a white man’s land. Go to the Ministry of Land in Lagos and see how many percent of land in Lagos Yoruba people own.

“The whole of Nigeria, look at your oil industry, who is controlling it? It’s the whites. They hide it in plain sight. Eko Hotel, is the most expensive real estate in the whole of Lagos, who owns it? Is it you? Now, Eko Atlantic is an extension of Eko Hotel, owned by the same foreigners.”
