  • Seun Kuti has been trending recently for his controversial opinions about political topics.

Nigerian musician Seun Kuti has tagged the followers of former Nigerian President Olusegun Obasanjo as “oppressors,’’ noting that they deserve to “go to hell.’’

In a video post, the son of the late legendary Afrobeat singer Fela Anikulapo Kuti lamented about the corrupt state of things in Nigeria and the manipulation of Nigeria’s natural resources, insisting that the administration of Olusegun Obasanjo was worse.


He said:

“They sell our oil, things that belong to us. That if anybody sells them, they’ll become billionaires. And when they were going to do these things, selling the things, especially during Obasanjo’s regime… That man is so wicked. And any Nigerian that praises Obasanjo for any reason will go to hell.’’

Seun Kuti also said that supporters of Obasanjo deserve hell because they are “beyond salvation.’’

Kuti said:

“You must go to hell because you have shown that you are beyond salvation. Whatever Obasanjo does in this country and you support it, you have shown that you are against Africa, you don’t respect Africa, that the atrocities of whatever forms that Africans have gone through have no bearing in your emotions as long as your own interests are served; you’re an oppressor. Anybody that can praise Obasanjo for anything is an oppressor! Is an oppressor!! You are an oppressor, nobody can tell me anything. It means you don’t respect Africans. You have no regard for all the atrocities we have gone through as African people. You are there to serve your selfish interest.”

Olusegun Obasanjo ushered Nigeria into the fourth republic and served as the President of Nigeria from 1999 to 2007, a period that saw several government officials accused of corruption, including then Vice President Atiku Abubakar.
