Afrobeat musician Femi Kuti has denied calling ‘Obidients’ zombies following reports on blogs and social media that he attacked the fervent supporters of Peter Obi.
Kuti in series of videos on his Twitter account, refuted the claims that he labeled them a zombie during his performance at Africa Shrine on Thursday.
Femi Kuti was reported to have said that, “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?.
Claiming he was misquoted, Femi Kuti tried to clear the air, stressing that, his words were taken out of context.
“You are such liars. Of what benefit is it to the people when you take my words out of context like this?
Femi Kuti added that, “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.”
This is everything about what I said and exactly what I think. Watch through the videos if you have the time. ✊🏽🎷 pic.twitter.com/QNO49XfCYG
