Seun Kuti, a well-known artist, has voiced his deep displeasure with opponents of the Buhari government who gladly accepted national accolades conferred upon them by the departing president’s administration.
President Muhammadu Buhari recently presented 339 prominent Nigerians with national accolades as he prepares to leave office.
Popular artist Davido and three notable Nigerian filmmakers – Kunle Afolayan, Charles Opaleke, and Ayodeji Richard Makun, popularly known as A.Y. – were honored.
Kuti has harshly criticized these people for receiving the prizes, turning to Instagram to question the coherence of their views and mock them for their alleged double standards.
He is certain that Buhari’s government is one of the worst the nation has ever seen and should not be supported.
Kuti questioned the sincerity of people who continuously criticize the government while accepting praises from the same administration.
He asked why no one would refuse the prizes on principle or if they felt Buhari had changed as a leader.
In his own words, “Half of the people criticising this government as the worst thing ever deh go collect award for Abuja from the same government? No one will reject it on principle? Or Buhari don legit? Make una tell me o.”
He captioned his post with the following statement, “Next 3 1/2 years now we start the same dance again. What do you stand for? #Mafo!! #standwellwell.”
Seun Kuti, born Oluseun Anikulapo Kuti, is a Nigerian musician and vocalist who is the youngest son of Fela Kuti, the famed Afrobeat pioneer.
According to officials, Seun Kuti was recently detained for allegedly assaulting a police officer. He was then freed from police prison and proceeded on a European tour.
