Afrobeats musician Femi Kuti has denied saying ‘Obidients’ are zombies. The supporters of the Labour Party presidential candidate for 2023, Peter Obi, are known as the “Obidients.”
Reports had it that Kuti described Obidients as zombies. “You know what obedience means? Stand up, sit down, sit there — zombie.
“How can you be Obidient in this chaos? I am not Obidient. Tell me, at 60, why am I Obidient? You said I should be Obidient, sit down, be peaceful,” he said. “Are you all okay in this country?”, Mr Kuti was accused of saying during a performance at the Shrine Thursday night.
But reacting in a series of Tweets on Friday, Kuti noted that he was misquoted, adding that he never called the youths zombies.
His words: “You are such liars. Of what benefit is it to the people when you take my words out of context like this?
“I said I’m too angry at my age to be obedient. Expressing I do not like the ‘term’. But if Peter Obi wins and actually changes the country better for all of us
“How you all come up with fabricated lies beats me. But why all the lies? You heard me endorse him or ever anyone? Mr Mc lie lie. Yes and where did I called the youths zombies? I AM NOT BAT.”
