Seun Kuti, an Afrobeat artist, has spoken out in response to the recent assault accusation and charges of domestic violence leveled against his wife.
In a recent Instagram live session, the Afrobeat artist denied rumors of violence in his marriage, emphasizing respect and mutual understanding.
Kuti addressed his position in response to rumors sparked by a video showing him telling his wife to return to their car.
He dismissed the notion that his wife complies out of fear, stating, “My wife is not scared of me. Trust me, if you know anybody that knows us, I’m the one that’s scared of my wife. But my wife respects me.”
The singer addressed individuals spreading the rumors, blaming their actions on envy and an inability to understand a good and communicative marriage between a husband and wife.
He defended himself, saying, “The most important rumour I must dispel is the one they said that I’m beating my wife.” He continued, “That Seun can talk to his wife and she would listen to him. That is what you all celebrities do.”
Kuti used his connection with his daughter as an example to support his thesis.
He proudly stated, “Even my daughter, Adara, I have never spanked her before. She will be ten in December. In her nine and half years she has been alive, she can never say Seun, her father has beaten her before.”
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.
