Iyabo Ojo politicised Mohbad’s death as movement against Naira Marley – Seun Kuti

Afrobeat singer, Seun Kuti has made an accusation against Nollywood actress, Iyabo Ojo.


He claimed Iyabo Ojo politicised the death of Nigerian singer, Mohbad, as a movement against his former record label boss, Naira Marley.


He made the allegations while reacting to Ojo’s claims that he is “confusing” the youth for saying controversial self-styled social media activist, VeryDarkMan is “a necessity.”


Kuti said he doesn’t believe Ojo’s activism was earned at getting justice for the late singer but targeted at Naira Marley.


Speaking in a video message shared via his Instagram account, the Afrobeat singer said: “I have watched your video, Iyabo [Ojo] but throughout the video you’re just talking about what VeryDarkMan did yet you said I was the one you were calling out.


“But there is one thing that I hold onto, you said I’m a confusionist confusing the youths. [Yoruba] This life is wicked. I’ve been on your podcast before because I bear you no grudge. I bear you no ill will. I stand personal beef. But when it’s political… It was you guys who politicised the death of Mohbad.


“You politicised his death. And I don’t believe you guys politicised his death because you were looking for justice because now what’s the findings? Did you accept the government’s findings? I read somewhere that the government said Mohbad died of substance abuse. If you guys believe the government findings, what are we doing? Justice for what?


“I believe personally, it was a movement against Naira Marley at the end of the day. I don’t see anything other than that. You said we are fighting against bullying in the Nigerian society and 70-80 per cent of celebrities are cultists.


“These are gangs of bullies. Bullies bullying everybody yet everyone is their friend. The gangs constantly bully people and celebrities are their members.


“Everybody is a friend of these members, nobody called them out for associating with gangs even after what happened to Mohbad. What’s happening? Is there any movement against confraternities in Nigeria? Where is the movement for justice for Mohbad now?”
