Seun Kuti allegedly showed Sanwo-Olu middle finger
So, the gist is that Afribeat singer Seun Kuti showed Lagos Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu his middle finger and walked out on him at his his suster, Yeni Kuti’s birthday party in Lagos.
There have been many accounts of what led to this unexpected confrontation between the singer and the Governor. A section of the media, inclduing Hip TV reported that Seun did not want the Governor at his sister’s wedding, and therefore walked out on him to register his displeasure.
Some said Seun was angry with the Governor for flouting his own rule by attending a party where there were obviously more than 200 people even though the Governor had banned a gathering of no more than 50 people in the State.
However, the celebrant, Yeni has come out to clear the air, saying that Seun has home training and would never disrespect the Governor as described by the media. She explained that what caused a misunderstanding was that Governor Sanwo-Olu’s security details shoved at his wife and he expectedly became angry at them, not the Governor.
