Eldest son of Afrobeat legend Fela Anikulapo- Kuti has voiced his displeasure and disapproval over the 2baba protest. The protest which is slated for Monday February 6th has attracted various entertainment industry heavy weights including YBNL Boss Olamide, Burna Boy, Davido, Charly Boy among others.
Femi Kuti has revealed that he opted to stay away from the protest, he however acknowledged that 2Baba had approached him concerning the logistics for the protest.
Amidst his weekly performance at the Afrika Shrine last night, Femi disclosed 2face had come to him to request the use of the Kuti’s historical venue on Sunday, February 5, while they prepare for the widely reported protest march.
“I hear say they want to do protest here, they even choose the day Sunday, Sunday is my day,’ he started.”
“So I was thinking, 2face say some people come meet am say make he broadcast am, so no be him sit down for him house com plan am, I for no vex.”
“Who be the people wey come meet you?”
He stated that there’s something ‘fishy’ about the protest because they planned a ‘coup’ in Nigeria without him and they decided to use the Afrika Shrine.
Femi added that they want to ‘scatter’ his venue because it’s ‘bubbling’, and it may prompt the federal government to close down one of their most valuable properties.
He assured his fans that it won’t happen because he’s not a ‘foolish man’.
Millions of Nigerians are expected to leave their homes, workplace and families to be at the National Stadium in Surulere on Monday morning as they walk through to the National Theatre in Lagos to protest against bad governance in the country.
Lagos State commissioner of Police Fatai Owoseni said the Police has security concerns about the protests, suggesting that the protest will be hijacked by hoodlums.
