Top musician Femi Kuti in a recent Instagram video post has addressed supporters of Labour Party (LP)’s presidential candidate, Peter Obi, who have been on his case.

The musician made it clear that all he did was come out to distance himself from the ‘obedient’ tag and give a clear context of what he meant.

“I’m too angry, I’m too sad and depressed to be ‘obedient’. How can anyone come up with that term? How can you be obedient? Me I can’t be obedient in this country. End SARS, Killings…,” Kuti explained.

According to him, being obedient simply means being told what to do without putting up any restraints.

Kuti added that he equally mentioned the relationship between Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar and Obi, and how they would have remained close pals if things panned out the way they wanted.

He categorically stated that he never referred to Obi’s supporters as 'zombies', but only distanced himself from the presidential candidate’s popular tagline.

The multiple Grammy-nominated musician also made it clear that he has never supported any political candidate and doesn’t intend to do so for Obi, Atiku and Bola Tinubu.

Reno Omokri on Tinubu, Atiku and Obi

Omokri argued that the politicians will not hate themselves because of Nigerians and that Tinubu, Atiku and Peter Obi will congratulate whoever wins among them.

The former presidential aide cited 2011 and 2015 when many supporters of Jonathan and Buhari supporters kill themselves while the duo are still at peace with each other.
