Afrobeats singer Seun Kuti has lashed out at African musicians, lamenting that they are fond of insulting African women.

He said this in a recent online video while addressing his supporters.

According to him, no one in the world criticizes African women more than African artists. He pointed out that such Africans include African Americans who want to identify solely as Americans.

Seun identified many rude lyrics that these African artists frequently use in their songs, which give other listeners an erroneous image of African women.

In other news, Afrobeats musician Seun Kuti has added a controversial angle to the brouhaha over conducting DNA tests. He was reacting after Mobad’s wife made a U-turn, insisting that she wouldn’t allow anybody to conduct a DNA test on her son.

Reacting, Seun said no man would want a DNA test if his wife is more financially secure than him.

According to him, obtaining DNA is about both trust and power. Kuti joined the conversation on the DNA test scandal raging on Nigeria’s social media platforms.

Nigerians disagree on the relevance of DNA tests, especially given the current rise of paternity fraud cases.

In a video message, Kuti stated that the emphasis on DNA testing originates mostly from trust and power dynamics in partnerships.

He contended that, while the immediate goal of DNA testing may be to prove paternity, the deeper reasons are often driven by underlying relationship dynamics.

He said:

There is no way that doing DNA test is not about trust. Doing DNA test is a trust issue 100 per cent! It’s not only a trust issue, it’s also a power issue. No man would request for a DNA test if their partners are richer than them.”

Yetunde Kuti and Seun discussed their marriage and what they deemed a deal-breaker on a special Valentine’s episode of TVC’s ‘Your View’. Seun claimed that he met his wife when he was 24 and that he is now 41 years old, while she is 37.

His wife explained that she had known him for a long time but had never felt anything for him because he was in a relationship at the time and because of their age difference.

“My family was surprised that my relationship with @bigbirdkuti got to marriage because they thought that I had already ended my life being with him and I was just going to be one of his 35 or 50 wives”.

“I met her when I was 24 years and now I am 41, while my wife will be 37 this year.

Yetunde Kuti said:

I have known him for a long time but we didn’t use to talk because he was older than me. I met him through his cousin and started working with him as a dancer. It wasn’t that he was out of my league but he had a lot of things going on for him, so at that time I wasn’t eyeing him.

Seun Kuti said:

At that time I had a girlfriend but I was attracted to her when I met her. I was toasting her and I didn’t know she was seeing someone I knew, that’s why she was playing hard to get.

There was pressure for me to get married. I can’t be pressured because it is my happy place. We got married not under pressure”.
