Most people that’ll go to heaven will come from Nigeria – Seun Kuti (Video)

Controversial Nigerian musician, Seun Kuti has said that only people who are poor will make heaven, particularly those from Nigeria.

He made the assertion during a recent interview on the Spill With Phyna podcast hosted by reality star, Phyna, where he also explained why he does not practice Christianity.

Seun, who describes himself as a juju worshipper said that whenever anyone tries to preach to him about giving his life to Christ, he first asks if they have a bank account.

Seun Kuti Nigerians heaven

According to him, if they answer affirmatively then he knows that such persons are not real Christians because they are not living in the now, according to biblical teachings.

He said that Christian and Islamic doctrines are not really being abided by those who claim to be Christians or Muslims as they participate in worldly endeavours that will prevent them from being accepted into heaven.

The singer said that anybody who has a bank account does not believe Jesus Christ is coming now as preached in churches, so they will go to any place he (Seun) will be taken to when they all die.

He said millions of Nigerians do not own bank accounts because they are poor, hence why many people who will make heaven will come from the country. Seun also opined that many people in Nigeria are holy because they live their lives in the present and don’t bother about tomorrow.

Meanwhile, in related news…

CorrectNG reported earlier that Seun Kuti said his family started Anglican Church in Nigeria. He said that despite their role in the church, he is a traditional African (juju) worshipper.

His grandfather and great grandfather, Reverend Israel Oludotun Ransome-Kuti and Josiah Ransome-Kuti respectively, were Anglican ministers during the colonial era.

The Grammy nominated artiste said he is not a follower of Christianity and he urged other Africans to return to African traditional religions.

Seun said; “It was my family that started Anglican side of Christianity in this country, if you look back at it. We are among the pioneers.

So, we’ve been there, we’ve done that and we’ve moved on. And we hope Africans can follow suit. I don’t go to church. Na juju me I dey do.”
