According to Afrobeats musician Seun Kuti, most people who criticize President Bola Ahmed Tinubu do so because they do not have access to him.
In the most recent episode of The Honest Podcast, Kuti stated that many of those who criticize the president would “love him” if they had access to him.
He grew up wondering why so many people “hated” his father, the late afrobeat pioneer Fela Anikulapo-Kuti.
He claimed that most people who criticize politicians often admire their children for financial reasons.
Kuti 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.”
