I was a fool when I campaigned for Tinubu in 1999 – Seun Kuti 

    Published By:

    Nigerian Afro-pop singer, Seun Kuti said he was a fool when he campaigned for the former governor of Lagos State, Bola Tinubu in 1999.

    Wakadaily learnt that Seun recently made headlines on social media when he called the Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi an “opportunist.”

    Many supporter’s of Obi, better known as ‘Obidients’ has taken to social media to drag him, which the controversy between Peter Okoye, one of the PSquare artists and Seun Kuti continues to aggravate as the duo throws shade at each other.

    The son of the legendary singer and activist shared a video on his Instagram page to address his alleged support for the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Tinubu.

    According to him: “I campaigned for Tinubu in 1999 because I knew him with my late father. I did Yoruba politics. Yoruba would be free from Nigeria because I was a fool in those days. I was young. I believed in what I could see.

    I didn’t just stay in that position of privilege thinking that yes, I have arrived because I know Tinubu. I continued to study, learn and develop my political consciousness.

    “If truly we are all looking for the best way to be, then we must continue in a certain way to work and be better knowledgeable. So, as I continued to study, the more evidence in front of me proved to me that these politicians were not what they claimed to be.

    “I stepped away immediately I discovered that what was happening there was false and selfish because it no longer matches my political consciousness.”
