Afrobeat musician, Seun Kuti, has described as opressive the government of President Muhammadu Buhari.

The vocal son of legendary Fela Anikulapo Kuti was quoted saying this during a recent interview.

Stating that he could not take an appointment from the present government, Seun Kuti whoes album  ‘Black Times’ was nominated in the Best World Music category of the 2019 Grammy Award said: “I can’t take a political appointment in an oppressive system.”

“There’s a Yoruba proverb that says that the only discussion the cockroach and the chicken can have is inside the stomach of the chicken,” he added.

Describing as harsh the arrest of Omoyele Sowore for planning a protest tagged ‘Revolution Now’, the musician condemned Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu for his silence all through the former Presidential candidiate’s ordeal.

“It is a shame that an administration with Asiwaju Ahmed Bola Tinubu will lock somebody up when he’s the leader of that party that is ruling, for saying Revolution Now, knowing the history of NADECO, the role that he played, and where we all came from, from 1993 till date, I think it was a bit harsh.”

Further, he said: “The only thing I told Sowore was that he needed a bit more time to take people along. You can’t do revolution on the people’s behalf. You have to do your revolution with the people.”
