Afrobeats artist Seun Kuti has finally reacted to allegations that he assaults his wife verbally and physically.
Recall that there were speculations that Kuti’s wife may be a victim of domestic violence after her husband was heard screaming at her during his altercation with a police officer in a viral video.
Reacting during his recent Instagram live session with fans, Kuti said his wife is not scared of him; rather, he is the one who is scared of her.
He said those who were acquitted with his family could testify to that.
The singer said, “The most important rumor I must dispel is the one they said that I’m beating my wife. They said I screamed at her to get into the car [in the viral video] and she went into the car…That she is scared of me. My wife is not scared of me. Trust me, if you know anybody that knows us, I’m the one who’s scared of my wife. But my wife respects me.
“And I know that many of you Nigerian men were just jealous to see a man that could talk to his wife, and his wife would listen. That’s the problem. It’s jealousy.”
He added that he has never even hit his 9-year-old daughter before.
