Seun Kuti has hit back at Peter Okoye aka Mr P of the music duo, P-Square for telling him he has erased his father, Fela’s name from history and also daring him to remove his surname ‘Kuti’ from his name and find out if he would still be popular.
The dare came after the singer clashed with Seun Kuti over a comment the latter made about presidential candidate, Peter Obi.
Seun Kuti further tagged Peter Obi as an opportunist who switched to the Labour Party after losing the PDP primaries.
“my late father was a nobody but today everyone knows the Okoyes! Dude try removing “Kuti’ from your name make I know weda anybody sabi you! Remain in that your local SHRINE while people like us and others continue excelling globally! You can’t shame the shameless”
“So we should not participate in this election because some people have supported APC or PDP before now?.. When people don smoke igbo dem go feel say na dem get wisdom pass.. So make we sidon look because you say so?
Dude, face your igbo and leave us alone! I understand that people sit on the face but dis one just hang for cable wire! Do your self a favour and puts on some cloths and cover your face in shame!.”
Hitting back at Mr P, Seun Kuti called him ‘talentless’ singer who couldn’t have a successful career as a solo artiste. Seun Kuti wrote:
“Not only are you talentless, you are a gimmick. Tried to go solo without your packaging what happened to your career? Just like ur candidate can’t decide his party? Today APGA TMR PDP NEXT TMR LP, you sef can’t decide if you want to be a twin duo or solo artiste.”
Peter Okoye also responded, stating that he and his brother, Paul ‘Rudeboy’ Okoye had issues like any normal family and they got over it.
He further asserted that the kind of life that Seun Kuti lives is far from normal and advised him to do better. Peter Okoye wrote:
“YES! Family argued, fight and settled! It’s normal in life! But let me tell you something that is not normal in life.
Smoking igbo, Doing drugs, and always dirty and shouting with no cloths on., and many wives and concubines and plenty children from left right and center!
And still come claim you are fighting the government for Nigerians all the time is not normal it’s irresponsible! Go clean that your living room and your self up! Too dirty and you should know better!..”
