Seun Kuti Reacts To Shooting At Party Goers



Seun Kuti

Afrobeat musician, Seun Kuti has reacted to an allegation that he pulled a gun at people attending a party on his street.

According to the woman, Seun Kuti who lives in Ikeja had shot his gun at party goers for parking on the street.

However, reacting to the allegation, the singer said that a party started on his street as early as 9:am and stretched till 7:pm.

Further, he revealed that until when he decided to leave his house for a quieter location, he discovered that he’d been blocked in his compound by cars of the party attendees, while his neighbour was unable to drive in.

Admitting that he slapped the partygoer who had blocked him, Seun explained that his action followed a shouting contest and an attempt by the partygoer to organise hoodlums to beat him and his neighbour up.

The Grammy award nominee also stated that he was also threatened by an irate bouncer.

Narrating the experience, he wrote:

“As I was waiting in the car o, their bouncer now came to meet me and threatened my life. He threatened my fucking life. He said, ‘no be you be Seun Kuti? Me I dey come shrine well well, we go come find you and treat your fuck up.’ So I said ‘you’ll kill me? You’ll treat my fuck up?’ That’s where the fight started.”

Posting his firearm license on his Instagram page following the incident, he did not confirm or deny whether or not he fired a gun but simply stated; “And we didn’t need to pull guns on anybody because we beat them with our bare hands. Yeah there were gunshots because men dey.”

Further weight was however thrown behind the gun usage scenario  and the activist boldly stated that even in the case of an arrest, if a warrant was not issued with the order and shown to him, there would also be a shoot-out.

A livid Seun ended the Instagram live by asserting that regardless of whatever situation he finds himself in, he won’t allow himself to be victimised.
