Seun Kuti has reacted to tweets from rapper Kanye West who stated that he is distancing himself from politics because he has been used.
Reacting to the tweets, Seun Kuti stated that he is not angry at Kanye West even though many people see him as a traitor. He wrote:
One day we as motherland people all over the world will start to listen to those that are actually doing the work for our progress. We shall shut out and alienate those among us that lead our youths astray, intentionally. One day tweeted apologies won’t cut it anymore. One day a traitor shall be just that. A TRAITOR.
One day we will forgive our friends their trespasses and hold oppressors accountable for their unforgivable sins against us instead. Sometimes I wonder how many friends we have lost over nonsense while we excuse the ones creating the conditions for this warped existence to exist.
I am not mad at Kanye, I am sorry for my people.
