Seun Kuti, a Nigerian musician and the youngest son of the Afrobeat pioneer, Fela Anikulapo Kuti, has stated that popular blogger Tunde Ednut wanted him to be jailed when he was arrested by the police.
The Daily Post recalls that the singer was arraigned before the Lagos State magistrate’s court and detained at the State Criminal Investigation Department, SCID, in Panti, Yaba, for physically assaulting a police officer. He was later released after spending days in detention.
Seun revealed during an Instagram live session on Tuesday that the celebrity blogger wanted him to go to jail because he owed him money for nine posts and was actively pushing for him to be sent to prison because he could not refund the money.
He said, “I hear everybody saying Tunde did not like me. Tunde actually is the only blogger I talk to in Nigeria and also has my number. And did you know why he wants me to go to jail?Because Tunde is owing me money.
“He was supposed to do 10 posts for me since two years ago but he did only one, and he knew that my new project will soon be out. He must do that post. In fact it has increased to twenty posts. So because of those nine posts he wants to do me what Sacoche did to Gaddafi.”
