Seun Kuti, scion of Afrobeat legend Fela Anikulapo Kuti got on the wrong side of his fans and critics alike when he posted a message on his Instagram page accusing God of plagiarism.
There was drama of some sort on his page after he shared snapshot from a book that compared the Bible’s Proverbs to the teachings of Amen-en-ope which didn’t go down well with most of his fans who saw the post.
Seun wrote thus on his page; “Is it really proverbs or is it stolen from work of our ancestor pharaoh Amen-em-Ope. Steal knowledge. Steal land. Steal people. Steal resources.
“If the bible was inspired by the word of ‘god’ how come we wrote the thoughts of ‘god’ before ‘gods’ people ?” he added.
The message posted by Seun got an Instagram user @jeff021582 miffed and the user replied thus; Suddenly Pharoah for Egypt don turn your ancestors??? You wey be oduduwa son now agree to have pharoah as your ancestor just so you can ridicule the Bible and those that believed in it??? You need to stop smoking weed,this don dey disturb your brain.
In his reply to @jeff021582, Seun said; “Oh my brother you are so stupid I couldn’t ignore u. U don’t know that we are all descendants of the Nile civilization? I am a descendants of the ancients and so are you. Even if u are too stupid to know.”
