Seun Kuti reveals how MKO Abiola allegedly framed his father Fela for robbery, wanted him killed

Afrobeat artist Seun Kuti has revealed that MKO Abiola framed his father, Fela Kuti for robbery and also marked him to be killed.

Seun Kuti accused the late MKO Abiola and his wife, Simbiat, of hatching a devious scheme to frame his father for armed robbery during Muhammadu Buhari’s brutal military dictatorship.

In his shocking revelation, Seun Kuti alleged that the Abiolas made up a narrative about Fela boldly stealing their Ferrari at gunpoint.

According to him, the accusation came at a time when Buhari’s Deputy Head of State, the hardline Tunde Idiagbon, was executing draconian laws that made armed robbery a capital offense, punishable by death.

Seun Kuti’s words;

“Abiola and his wife, Simbiat, lied against Fela that he and his boys robbed her of her Ferrari at gunpoint under Idiagbon’s regime. This was Abiola and his wife’s plan to kill my dad because, under Idiagbon, armed robbery was punishable by death.

“Abiola and Simbiat wrote a statement at a police station that they saw Fela and his gang rob her at gunpoint. This led to Fela’s arrest which is punishable by death, but luckily for Fela, he was performing in Cameroon the very day Simbiat was lying about the theft. Fela escaped the case because he can’t be in two places at the same time; its either he’s on a stage in Cameroon or robbing in Lagos.

“Responding, Fela and my elder brother, Femi, took 12 buckets of faeces go and listen to his song – give me shit, I give you shit – then you will have a better understanding. They took it to Abiola’s house in the middle of the night and smeared his compound.

“The next day, the police visited my father’s house saying they came to investigate the shit-show in Abiola’s house the previous day. But Fela denied the act saying if given the opportunity, he would smear Abiola’s house with faeces.”
