Femi Kuti: I never supported Buhari’s election

Afrobeat maestro, Femi Kuti, has denied that he supported the All Progressives Congress (APC) ahead of the 2015 presidential election.

In a series of tweets which the music legend released on Friday, he made it clear that he never placed his support for any political party or politician.

Kuti was responding to a  follower who accused him of keeping silent in the face of the recession and accused him of supporting the government.

Kuti in one of his tweets,  explained that Vice President, Yemi Osibanjo came to visit him during the campaign seeking for his support but he refused, saying he could never support a man who reportedly jailed his father.

The fan was quoted to have asked Kuti that [email protected] so you still have the strength this recession you and your clueless brother helped to bring on hapless Nigerians”.

According to Kuti, “Thank God the VP is still there and can confirm I vehemently said NO. Now where did I tell anyone to vote or support any political party?”

He added that he had to come out to clear the air so that many would not be confused, saying that “No paper reported that I gave my support. Remember they came to my house, I didn’t go them. They came to me to seek my support but I told no that I would not support a man who jailed my father.”
