Seun Kuti accuses Nigerians of almost destroying his career for assaulting policeman

Popular Afrobeats singer, Seun Kuti has accused Nigerians of almost destroying his career following his altercation with a police officer.

Spark News reports that, in May 2023 Seun assaulted a policeman, resulting to his arraignment before the Lagos State magistrate’s court and detained at the State Criminal Investigation Department, SCID, in Panti, Yaba.

The son of the late Afrobeats maestro, Fela was captured in a viral video on the internet slapping a police officer.

Reflecting on the situation, Seun Kuti in an Instagram live video, stated that he came dangerously close to losing his entire career as a result of the incident.

“I’m tired of seeing my name everywhere attached to Sam Larry, Naira Marley, arrest or no arrest, police or no police. I’m really tired and I don’t want you guys to join me in your issues.

“That was how una used una mouth nearly spoil my life, nearly destroying my career with una yeye keypad and computer. I missed five or six big shows this summer just because I defended my life and the life of my family. For that reason Nigerians wanted my life to be ended, for me to be destroyed and no body cared.

“Nigeria Police suddenly became an innocent and peaceful force on earth. And Seun became the mad person that left his house looking for police to quarrel with. That was the picture you people painted about me then”, he said.
