“If no be because of your papa, who sabi you?” – Singer, Peter Okoye drags Seun Kuti

Peter Okoye, a renowned Nigerian musician, hit back at his colleague Seun Kuti for labeling Peter Obi, the Labor Party’s presidential candidate, as an opportunist.

It all began when Seun remarked during a podcast that only the people of Nigeria can save their nation and highlighted that Peter Obi was unable to fulfill his supporters’ claims of saving the country.


“He hasn’t had the time because he started too late. You can’t be telling me that just because you lost PDP primaries 18 months before the election, you suddenly started a movement, and you have a plan for the country.” He said in part.

Kuti further added that he had been offered money from politicians to support them in 2015 but declined, whereas Okoye has been taking payments from politicians and attending their campaigns since 2015.

Responding to his remarks, Peter Okoye reprimanded him in multiple posts, insisting that Seun’s music was irrelevant and claiming that if it weren’t for his famous father Fela Kuti, no one would have ever heard of him.

“If no be because of your papa, Abeg who sabi you? I can’t even point out one song that you sang sef.
