Afrobeat musician, Femi Kuti, has received the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, at his residence.
This was after he described the former Anambra State governor as not being different from the other politicians he claims he wants to rescue Nigeria from.
Photos trending online also showed entertainer Charly Boy and Kuti’s son, Mide Kuti, during the meeting.
Kuti had said, “Why would I support Tinubu? Please don’t get me angry. I believe Peter Obi and Atiku are friends for him to be his Vice President if they had won the last election, so why should I not have doubts?
“My family has not supported any political party, we just sit and watch. We would not support anyone because we are heartbroken.
“If Obi wins and things change, then we’ll jubilate but no one should tell me not to have my doubts about him. I can’t tell you what to do with your life.
“Stop threatening me that you’ll burn the shrine or insult my children. Stop that. When Fela was against Abiola, you voted for him, same thing about Obasanjo
“If you tell me Obi is different, but he went to greet Babangida, Obasanjo, that makes me skeptical
“My family believes these political elites are part of the problem of this country. I have my reservations about Peter Obi and you cannot tell me what to think.
“How would you ask me if I like Tinubu, when he was Governor he raided the shrine so many times. We had a big battle with Tinubu closing the shrine.
“I just love to play my music and don’t want anything from anybody. I’ve always believed in the youth just like my father. My children are youths and I have to see life like there’s light at the end of a tunnel.”.
