Nigerian Afrobeat singer, Femi Kuti has reacted to a trending report stating that he referred to supporters of Labour Party presidential candidate Peter Obi as ‘zombies’.
The report claimed that Kuti during his performance at the Afrika Shrine on Thursday, said: “How can you be Obidient in this chaos? I am not Obidient. Tell me, at 60, why am I Obidient? You said I should be Obidient, sit down, be peaceful. Are you all okay in this country?”
But, reacting in a Twitter post on Friday, Femi Kuti said that his words were taken out of context.
He noted that he does not like the term ‘Obidient’ but if Peter Obi wins and changes Nigeria, then it’s for the best of everyone.
His tweet read: “You are such liars. Of what benefit is it to the people when you take my words out of context like this?
“I said I am too angry at my age to be Obedient. Expressing I do not like the ‘term’. But if Peter Obi wins and actually changes the country, better for all of us.”
