I didn’t call Peter Obi’s supporters zombies, Femi Kuti clears air

Femi Kuti, the musician, has dismissed claims he called fans of Peter Obi, presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), zombies.

On Thursday, a report had alleged that the 60-year-old used the term to describe the supporters of the presidential candidate known as ‘Obidients’ while performing at the new Afrika Shrine on Thursday.

“You know what obedience means? Stand up, sit down, sit there — zombie. How can you be Obidient in this chaos? I am not Obidient,” he allegedly said.

“Tell me, at 60, why am I Obidient? You said I should be Obidient, sit down, be peaceful. Are you all okay in this country?”

Reacting to the viral report in a Twitter post on Friday, Femi said 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? I said I’m too angry at my age to be obedient,” he wrote.

“Expressing I do not like the ‘term’ But if Peter Obi wins and actually changes the country better for all of us.”
