Ever vocal Seun Kuti, son of Afrobeat legend Fela Anikulapo Kuti has fired another salvo when he took to social media to comment on a matter that is really disturbing his conscience.
The Afrobeat singer took to Instagram to bare his thoughts about buying expensive clothes for his kids saying he will no longer attempt it again as his children outgrow them quickly, which is a waste of money and also equal to second slavery.
“I remember this day very vividly. Never buying expensive clothes for my kids; can’t tell u how much I bought that effing dress she’s wearing. These brands are sucking the life out of black people!! The attachment to the ‘brand’ and ‘branding’ still has the same effect as slavery trust me.
“Gucci gang naaaah more like Gucci’s slave… Well back to my personal rant. Now I asked @chefyeide for it and she says. Haba she is four now she can’t fit in it anymore, whaaaaaaat really? For that price, this dress should grow with @adarakuti if that’s not the case GET THE SAX.
Recall weeks ago that Seun launched a vocal tirade against the present government led by President Muhammadu Buhari and the activities of corrupt politicians in the land.
Seun who was obviously put off by the political class in Nigeria lamented the fact that youths are neglected in a country where nothing works due to failed policies by successive governments.
