Peter Obi: Seun Kuti Mocked As Tweet Praising Tinubu For Bringing Buhari To Power Resurfaces


Peter Obi and Seun Kuti

Nigerian Afrobeat singer, Seun Kuti, has been mocked online after a tweet appreciating the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, for bringing President Muhammadu Buhari to power resurfaces.

Naija News earlier reported that trouble started after the son of the late legendary singer, Fela Anikulapo, described the former governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi as an ‘Opportunist’.

Taking a swipe at Peter Obi, the singer said he is an opportunist who moved to Labour Party after losing at PDP, adding that he cannot save Nigeria.

Reacting in a post via Twitter, Peter Okoye slammed Seun, saying he is frustrated and has erased his father’s history.

Their exchanges escalated so much that Peter dragged Seun’s family, including his father Fela Anikulapo-Kuti, and nephew Made into the fray.

Seun Drags Peter Okoye

Seun Kuti took to his Instagram page to attack Peter Okoye and boasted of being nominated for Grammy, unlike the latter who has never been nominated.

The singer also slammed Peter for pitching his tent with both the APC and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the past and performing at their campaigns for monetary gains.

Peter Okoye also replied Seun saying he is a Grammy nominee and still lives in trenches urging him to remove Fela from his name and see how he would become unpopular.

Nigerians Dig Up Old Tweet

As the social media spat continued, some Nigerians dug up a 2015 tweet where Seun praised Tinubu for bringing Buhari to power.

He tweeted: “I thank Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu for bring this change. Aluta Continua.”

This earned him mockery and backlash with many saying he was praising a man who jailed his father.
