“No man would request for DNA test if their partners were richer than them” – Seun Kuti

Nigerian Afrobeat musician, Seun Kuti has shared his two cents on the DNA test controversy dominating conversations on social media spaces.

The Grammy nominated artiste asserted that demanding for DNA test has to do with trust and power dynamics in a relationship.

No man would request DNA test if their partners were richer - Seun Kuti

Seun opined that most of the men requesting for DNA tests wouldn’t do so it if their partners were more financially buoyant than them.

He said; “There is no way that doing DNA test is not about trust. Doing DNA test is a trust issue 100 per cent! It’s not only a trust issue, it’s also a power issue. No man would request for a DNA test if their partners are richer than them.”

Meanwhile, in similar news…

It was reported earlier that a Nigerian man took to social media to narrate how a rich friend discovered that his three children do not belong to him.

He said the man was making arrangements to travel to Canada with his wife and kids, so he conducted DNA tests on them as part of the requirements for the visa approval.

However, when the results came out, it showed that he was not the biological father of any of the children aged, 9, 6 and 4. According to the narrator, the wife defended the paternity fraud by blaming it on her husband’s excess committment to his work.

The post reads; “A friend of mine got DNA results for all three of his kids yesterday. None of them are his. A 9 year old, a 6 year old and a 4 year old. The man is completely broken. His wife’s response was that he worked too hard and she drops her phone. She has not responded to all our calls.

This man is a line manager with an international oil and gas service company, doing absolutely great, his kids came to visit him and according to him, he simply wanted to run comprehensive medicals for them and just decided to throw in a DNA to check ancestry.

The man is completely broken. His kids are in the house with him, security and emergency services have been called, everybody is crying, kids are crying.”

A tweep commented; Any man that does DNA test in this age has somehow prepared his mind for the worst. Like I usually say, this thing called marriage, I see it as a scam. How do you bring untold hardship to a person you claim to love ? I think DNA test should be made compulsory after birth …because it’s like women are still sleeping with the serpent

The narrator added; “Rad, he didn’t set out to do DNA testing for the kids. Dude has already arranged visa appointments for the kids and wife to relocate to Canada . So na medicals him go do and then decided to throw in the DNA angle to cover all bases . Na so kasala take burst.”
