Seun Kuti recently shared the details of a troubling time in his life when his career nearly crumbled after a high-profile clash with the Nigerian police.
This incident not only jeopardized his professional success but also resulted in his arrest.
The situation began with an unfortunate encounter with the Nigerian police.
As he tried to protect himself and his family, a heated argument escalated to the extent that Seun Kuti resorted to slapping a police officer.
Unfortunately, what he believed was an act of self-defense ended up having significant consequences that were beyond his imagination.
Rather than receiving support and empathy from the public, both netizens and Nigerians surprisingly defended the actions of the police officers involved in the altercation.
Consequently, Seun Kuti was arrested in his own home, and he found himself immersed in a relentless struggle for days and weeks afterward to extricate himself from the predicament.
In a live video, Seun Kuti candidly discussed the extent of the crisis he faced during this period.
