'My family started Anglican Church in Nigeria but I worship idols' - Seun Kuti

Afrobeat singer, Seun Kuti has disclosed that he is an idol worshiper.

However, Seun stated that despite his family’s role in pioneering Christianity in Nigeria, he is not a follower of the religion. He boldly stated that he is an idol worshiper.

Educating religious enthusiasts, he explained that faith in Jesus Christ goes beyond belief in a person; it involves embracing the resurrection and birth doctrines. He highlighted how both Christianity and Islam demand immediate acceptance, emphasizing the religions are for the present.

He said

“My family started the Anglican side of Christianity for this country really. If you look back at it, we are part of the pioneers. Bee there, done that, and have moved on. We hope Africans can follow suit. No, na juju I dey do.

When people try to preach to me to give my life to Christ, I ask them only one question and it’s if they have bank accounts. If they say Yes, I tell them they are just like me, anywhere I dey go, where I die, is where you are going.

To believe in Jesus Christ is not to believe in a man or personality, there are doctrines behind it. You just believe in the resurrection and the birth. Christianity and Islam are like a religion of now”.
