Peter P-square and Seun Anikulapo Kuti

Those of you making the issue between Peter P-square and Seun Anikulapo Kuti about who is the better musician, are missing the point in its entirety. The musical prowess of the aforementioned two gentlemen is not the issue here, and neither is their family background.

The thrust of the controversy is that at a time over 200 million Nigerians are gearing up for a Make or Mar general election which has three main front-runners:

1. Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, a suspected international drug dealer whose real name, age, ancestry, academic record and family history are all shrouded in mystery

2. Atiku Abubakar, a former vice president whose entire public service record is enmeshed in gross allegations of corruption and selling of national assets to his cronies


3. Mr Peter Obi, a former governor with a global reputation for prudence in managing public funds and who during his term in office, was no1 in MDG which is the only globally accepted measure of development, was no1 in education, was no1 in pulling people out of poverty, was one of the best in health, didn’t allocate a single land to himself, didn’t owe salary, contractor or supplier, but ended up saving 75 billion Naira which no other governor has done and above all, has never taken a kobo as gratuity or pension from the state he governed for 8 years;

Seun Kuti, who parades himself as a social justice activist, revolutionary and one who desires good governance, chose to attack candidate no3 (Obi) who is widely acknowledged as the cleanest, most competent and one with the best record. And this is even as the same Seun has never directly spoken against no1(Tinubu) but was known to have praised him at one time instead, for helping enthrone Muhammadu Buhari, a man whose 7+ years in power has brought the country to its knees.

This is the issue!

You cannot be praising a man like Tinubu for helping enthrone Buhari whom your own father, the legendary Fela Anikulapo Kuti warned us about in a series of songs, turning a blind eye to all the scandals associated with Tinubu while focusing your attacks on Mr. Obi who is rated the most competent amongst the presidential candidates and enjoys overwhelming supports from the youths, and expect right thinking members of the public not to question your credibility as an activist and the scion of the great Fela.

Nigeria is an Enigma. The capacity to gain an accurate and deep understanding of her is undoubtedly God’s endowment to us, her citizens. As a citizen of this lovely nation, I’ve spent decades of my life trying to understand this, Mirage. Hope someday, this Mystery that houses about 250 million blacks will be globally understood, widely accepted, and given the opportunity to play its vital role in the world stage. So, help us God! #NigeriaDeservesBetter #AfricaDeservesBetter
