Well known Afrobeat musician and social crusader, Seun Kuti, has attacked popular Nigerian Actor cum politician, Desmond Elliott.
Kuti said that Lagos State lawmaker and entertainer, Desmond Elliot, is a man who does not stand for anything.
The lawmaker has received backlash from the public ever since a video surfaced of him at the Lagos State House of Assembly where he called Nigerian youths ‘children’ and sought for the regulation of social media
In an exclusive interview with The Punch, the Grammy award-nominated musician stated that the Nigerian people have given the lawmaker a new name, Desmond Idiot; which is the name he calls the lawmaker.
“There is nobody like Desmond Elliot, his new name among the people of Nigeria is Desmond Idiot. That insult that he does not like, his real name is Desmond Idiot. His name is Hon. Desmond Idiot. Being a youth is not an ideology. A man like Desmond does not stand for anything. He is also a beneficiary of that patronage system that has been used to establish every other person in Nigeria. There is nothing special about where he is. He is not there by talent, know-how, or skill; he is there because those oppressors that we complain about picked him to represent them there.
