Famous Afrobeats singer, Seun Anikulapo Kuti, has stated that most people who criticise President Bola Tinubu would end up loving him if they had access to him.
The controversial artiste stated this during an episode of The Honest Podcast, where he explained that the criticism would cease if they were to become close to the president.
Seun Kuti said growing up, he could not freely enter his girlfriend’s house because of how people “hated” his father, the late afrobeat pioneer, Fela Anikulapo-Kuti.
According to the instrumentalist, most of the people who criticise politicians often turn around to praise the children of politicians because of money.
Seun said; “Being Fela’s son, growing up in Nigeria, I no even fit enter my girlfriend papa’s house. I go dey wonder say, ‘Wettin my papa sef dey do like dis wey nobody like am?’
“But I know my father; he’s a cool guy. So, what’s it about this guy that nobody likes? If I go anywhere, people would be like, ‘Oh! He’s Fela’s son…’ I know that pain. But I looked at all politicians’ children; the same people who criticise Tinubu today will praise his children tomorrow because of money.
“So, I understand that if you had access to Tinubu, you would love him. Your only hatred of him is your lack of access.”
