Afrobeat singer Seun Kuti has opined that actors and musicians have ‘sold their souls’ to politicians.
The 39-year-old said this in an Instagram post on Wednesday, May 11 while explaining why ‘poor people sell their votes’. Seun wrote:
“If I hear one more ‘stop selling your votes’ directed at the poor by those who have already ‘sold their souls’ I will snap.
The reason why poor Nigerians have no choice but to sell their votes is because all, or at least most(99.9%) of Nigerian professionals have sold their souls!
Journalists Judges lecturers Bankers Oil industry workers Farm owners Cattle rearer, Policeman, Soldiers, Civil Servants Engineers Accountants etc have all sold their souls and are willing to carry out any wicked act in the name of ‘I am doing my job’.
The job of destroying your country!! #getthesax Add musicians and actors.”
Reacting in the comment section of the post, actress Chioma Ifemeludike who agreed with the singer’s statement wrote, “Dem no get sense!”
