Femi Kuti, popular saxophonist, has reacted to a report claiming that he called Peter Obi’s supporters zombies.
The 60-year-old on Thursday had allegedly thrown a shade to Peter Obi’s supporters and the Labour Party supporters were not having it.
He had made the comments during a performance at the Afrika Shrine.
“You know what obedience means? Stand up, sit down, sit there — zombie. How can you be Obidient in this chaos? I am not Obidient. Tell me, at 60, why am I Obidient? You said I should be Obidient, sit down, be peaceful. Are you all okay in this country?” the reports claimed he said.
Reacting in a Twitter post on Friday, Femi Kuti denied the report, adding that his words were taken out of context.
He wrote: “You are such liars. Of what benefit is it to the people when you take my words out of context like this? I said I’m too angry at my age to be obedient. Expressing I do not like the ‘term’ But if Peter Obi wins and actually changes the country better for all of us.”
Zombie was the title of a studio album released in 1976 by Femi’s father, Afrobeat legend, Fela Anikulapo Kuti.
