Seun Kuti shared his thoughts on what it means to be Nigerian, colonialism as well as discrimination against women.
During his impassioned speech, the son of the late music legend, Fela Kuti, emphasized the fact that most Nigerians do not know what it means to be Nigerian.
According to him, this is the reason why the Westerners find it easy to mould us into whatever they deem fit.
It is hardly surprising that these subjects were the main themes of Fela Kuti’s songs during his life time, in which he spoke of slavery, racism, discrimination and much more.
If there is someone who is upset with Nigeria’s political and ruling class, then it’s Seun Kuti.
The Afrobeat musician went on a Twitter rant today, Monday, September 4, 2017, and blasted the government and political class.
Seun Kuti fired his first shot by tweeting “So dey want us to think stupid, everybody celebrating, deyve bn celebrating all dis days, but who is celebrating d slavery days.”
The leader of the Egypt 80 band is also annoyed about the state pf education in the country. “Naija Youths ask again, Wetin b dis present Naija govt policy on Education?” tweeted Seun Kuti.
