Singer, Seun Kuti on Monday chided pastors and Islamic clerics, saying they should concentrate on encouraging people to fight for Nigeria instead of the usual 'pray for the country' rhetorics.
Seun, the youngest son of famous afrobeat pioneer, Fela Kuti, stated that the masses have had enough of their spiritual leaders not standing up for them when it matters more.
According to the musician, what the country needs is not prayer but people who are willing to stand up and fight against oppressionand injustice.
He disclosed this on Monday via his official Instagram page.
“Dear priest/Imam stop praying for Nigeria and start people to fight for Nigeria, abi you dey fear say dem go fight u too?
“Switch up the sermon! I mean when some Pastors in some churches weren’t performing, we didn’t pray for them, we sacked them ( fought) from office. When some girls say some pastors raped them we didn’t pray for them na.
"When one man say one pastor knack him wife , the pastor no pray for am o but everyday pray for Nigeria, pray for your leaders. FIGHT FOR NIGERIA!! #getthesax.”
