Read the conversation below.
Seun Kuti is known to be a huge critic of the government.
A couple of months ago, he shared his frustration over the government’s plan to shut down the Afrika Shrine because of his support for the #EndSars protest.
Recall Seun Kuti was among the outspoken celebrities at the peak of the #EndSARS protest in the country.
He made his reservations known about the ideology of the protest.
Seun Kuti went on to say that it appears the average Nigerian is fighting for the issue that affects them; which is police brutality because they want to freely drive their Benz without being harassed.
However, he stated that they do not seem to care about the problems that affect poorer Nigerians.
He said that SARS is not our only problem, adding that NURTW boys collect money from market women, okada riders; as well as bus drivers every day and no one is fighting for them.
