The Labour Party’s presidential candidate for 2023, Peter Obi, often known as “Obidients,” has supporters that Femi Kuti, the son of afrobeat great Fela Kuti, has compared to zombies.
His late father, Fela Anikulapo Kuti, mocked Nigerian troops as a group of robotic and dumb people in a studio album he titled Zombie and released in 1976.
Do you understand what it means to obey? At a concert at the Shrine on Thursday night in Lagos, Mr. Kuti questioned why Mr. Obi’s popularity has increased so quickly in recent months. “Stand up, sit down, sit there — zombie,” he remarked.
“How are you going to be obedient in this mess? I’m not being obedient. Tell me why I’m obedient at 60. You told me to be obedient, sit down, and be calm,” he said. Are you all safe and sound in this nation?
