"Guy you just made @PeterObi lose a vote come on why go the extra mile to disrespect Fela’s legacy come on he is the author of the afrobeat you guys sour on to make it in life."
"The Kuti name is a household name in Africa. From the struggle of independence, to the struggle for the right of women and the struggle for democracy. That name you just called is one of the reason your speech is free."
"Seun has Grammy nominations. Seun does concerts all over the world without posting sef. Seun is ok and not hungry. He is part of the kuti family and that will never change so that point ain’t valid. He made a good point and you went after his fathers legacy, that’s petty."
"Local shrine you say? The street will never forget this, man."
"Last time I checked you haven’t been nominated for a Grammy."
"Fela is a national treasure. The pride of Africa. The pride of SW. We don't know who Okoye is."
"Hmmmmm, this fight is unnecessary, the youth should focus and vote. Focus ooo."
