Nigerian Afrobeats singer, Femi Kuti has claimed that supporters of the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, (LP), Peter Obi threatened to burn down Afrika Shrine over his recent comment.
Recall that he had made a post distancing himself from the Obidient movement and mentioned Zombies, but he noted that his comment was misconstrued.
According to Kuti, due to his post, his family members received a series of threats from Obi’s supporters and some equally threatened to burn the Afrikan Shrine, simply because he allegedly tagged them as ‘zombies’.
He cleared the air by saying that all he did was to dissociate himself from Obidients because he is not one to follow a crowd.
“I’m too angry, I’m too sad and depressed to be ‘obedient’. How can anyone come up with that term? How can you be obedient? Me I can’t be obedient in this country. End SARS, Killings…,” he said.
The son of late Fela Kuti said that to him, being obedient simply meant that people would be told what to do without having a mind of their own.
In a video he posted on his Instagram page, the artiste also talked about the relationship between PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar and Peter Obi, noting that their friendship would still have been strong if things worked out for all parties the way they wanted.
The Grammy-nominated artiste stressed that he never referred to the former Anambra governor’s supporters as ‘zombies’.
He also made it clear that he has never supported any political candidate and doesn’t intend to do so for any of either Tinubu, Atiku or Obi.
