Protest: Kuti says Tuface a front, turns down participation

By Seun Adefioye, Lagos
Afrobeat singer, Femi Kuti, has punctured the sincerity of the organisers of Monday’s protest match, saying they (the organisers) are fronting for some shadowy cabal.
This is coming just as he disclosed how he turned down the request of the main organiser, Innocent Tuface Idibia’s to use the Afrika Shrine for a nationwide protest scheduled to hold across the country on February 6.
Kuti bore his mind on the issue on Thursday while performing at the Afrika Shrine.
He admitted that Tuface had come to him to ask if he could use the venue.
Femi Kuti said, “I hear say they want to do protest here, they even choose the day Sunday, Sunday is my day.
“So I was thinking, Tuface say some people come meet am say make he broadcast am, so no be him sit down for him house com plan am, I for no vex. Who be the people wey come meet you?” he questioned.
He added that he was not comfortable with the entire arrangement, as it was planned without him and he was also concerned that the government will shut down the shrine.
