“I didn’t say ‘Obidients’ are zombies” – Femi Kuti
After recent controversy between the Afrobeats singer Femi Kuti and ‘Obident movement’, the Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi paid a visit to Femi Kuti @ shrine. Also, in the meeting, Charley Boy and others were present.
Obi said, “I saw what my own brother, Femi, tweeted and I said no! that is not what the future and the society we want to build.”
He continued, while speaking on video clip, “We will lead a campaign based on issues that affect Nigerians and that is what I encourage everybody to do.”
Earlier before he met Peter Obi, Femi Kuti was allegedly quoted saying during a performance at the Shrine Thursday night:
“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?,”
In his Tweets page on Friday, Kuti said, “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’m 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
“How you all come up with fabricated lies beats me. But why all the lies? You heard me endorse him or ever anyone? Mr Mc lie lie. Yes and where did I called the youths zombies? I AM NOT BAT.”
