Seun Kuti Reveals How Nigerians Almost Ruined His Career

Afrobeat singer, Seun Kuti has revealed that Nigerians almost ruined his career after he protected his family by punching a police officer.

Recall that a viral video showed him boldly slapping a police officer in uniform in May 2023.

The singer attacked the police officer after becoming enraged at the man for damaging the back bumper of the car his family was riding in.

Following this, the singer was detained and brought before the Lagos State magistrate’s court.

Seun Kuti revealed in a live video via his official Instagram account, that he missed roughly six major performances because he stood up for his family throughout the subsequent struggle.

Seun said, “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.”
