Mohbad’s father is tagged evil because he’s poor” — Seun Kuti
Afrobeat singer Seun Kuti has blasted those who accused the late Nigerian musician Mohbad’s father for prematurely burying him.
Recall that Mohbad, who died in a disputed manner on September 12, 2023, was buried the next day, on September 13, 2023.
Several followers of the musician took to social media to attack the singer’s father for burying him without proper preparations or comprehensive questions.
Seun Kuti responded to the criticism surrounding Mohbad’s funeral in a recent interview with media personality Nedu’s Thehonestbunch podcast by suggesting that the deceased father is only being condemned because he is poor.
“Poverty is playing a big role in this whole Mohbad issue. People are saying Mohbad’s father killed him because he buried him early. Who will be looking at his son’s dead body for two to three days?” He queried.
Speaking in Pidgin, Kuti asked, “If na Otedola pikin die and he bury am overnight, wetin anybody go talk here? No be sey una go dey give am condolences visit for a house?
“Instead of us to be consoling the man, we are making him evil that can kill his son. Somebody that just lost his child. You like the boy pass am na hin dem dey bully the boy all these days and you no talk anything.”
