Singer Peter Okoye of Nigeria has criticized Seun Kuti for disparaging Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP), who is running for president.
As previously reported by The Site News, the late iconic singer’s son, Fela Anikulapo, referred to the former governor of Anambra State as a “opportunist” in his description.
He revealed that the African Action Congress (AAC) presidential candidate, Omoyele Sowore is his preferred candidate.
Seun stated that even if Sowore emerges as the winner of the 2023 election, he would still be unable to function effectively due to the dominance of the Peoples Democratic Party and All Progressives Congress (APC) in key positions in the country.
Taking a swipe at Peter Obi, the singer said he is an opportunist who moved to LP after losing at PDP, adding that he cannot save Nigeria.
Seun Kuti further made a mockery of the LP flagbearer, insisting he is an internet president whose election is on social media and lacks the structural background to win an election.
I Understand Your Frustration
Reacting in a post via Twitter, Peter Okoye slammed Seun, saying he is frustrated and has erased his father’s history.
He said singers like Burna Boy and many others took the path of his father to gain prominence unlike him.
He wrote: “Dude just erased his fathers History! You said only the people of Nigeria can save Nigeria! Is PO and the rest candidates not the Nigerian people?…. SHAME! SHAME!! SHAME!!!
“Dude,I understand your frustration. But realize that the sky is big enough for all birds to fly. @burnaboy and other great artistes have climbed on our great Fela’s ladder to blow. Comport your self and pray to your god. My God has blessed my destiny & i’ll 4ever remain thankful. I’ll surely keep you in my prayers. Learn from your nephew @Madekuti cos he is well guided and clean.”
