'Blood Suckers!' Seun Kuti Blasts Dangote And Otedola
Afrobeat singer, Seun Kuti, is not impressed by billionaires Aliko Dangote and Femi Otedola.
He put 2 of Nigeria and Africa’s wealthiest men on blast after a photo of the two with other friends on a yacht went viral.
According to the son of Afrobeat legend, Fela Kuti, Nigerians may choose to celebrate the billionaires, but he has no love for them because they are ‘blood suckers.’
In an Instagram post, Kuti wrote,
‘I see people trying to put a positive spin on this image but what I see is a group of people with a combined debt of 2.5 trillion Naira (as just released by AMCON) which is used to buy a lavish lifestyle and paid for by tax payers.
‘How can people owe so much and still be allowed to keep all their luxury while the tax payers are footing the bill.
‘Y’all can celebrate these blood suckers but I have NO LOVE!!!!’
Seun, who is just as vocal as his late father was on socio-political issues, has been known to take shots at Nigeria's political elite.
