Seun Kuti, son of Afrobeat legend Fela Anikulapo Kuti is lamenting that more Nigerians celebrate a show in which the nation is the biggest loser.
According to him, Nigerians spent more attention and money on the Big Brother Naira show, which he described as nonsense, than they do on national issues, which affect their lives.
Seun penned his thoughts in a message he posted on his social media handle saying it is worthy of note that someone has won but the nation at large in the bigger picture continues to lose.

“I believe that the fact someone from the Niger Delta won the BBA nonsense is very accurate. I mean what other region has been fucked by international extractors more

“While the majority jubilate when one of them is given peanuts in corrupt returns for their suffering. Someone has won but the nation stays losing! Another big L for Nigeria and I don’t mean the late talent.
“When big brothers celebration of senseless consumerism and misdirection gets more young people voting than our national elections and candidates , we just need to raise better people, shikena!! I mean I thought we Fela kids were the ‘no do wells’ and the uncouth! How come we care so much?
“Re evaluate yourself. What have you learnt in the past 90 days that you couldn’t have learnt just paying attention to your own life?,” Seun wrote.
