Nigerian musician Seun Kuti has jabbed Nollywood actor cum politician, Desmond Elliot describing him as an idiot.
Seun Kuti said in an interview with The Punch that Desmond Elliot does not stand for anything and now his named has changed to Desmond Idiot and that is the name Nigerians will know him by.
Reported by ab-tc.com, Seun Kuti said,;
“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.AdvertisementAdvertisement
“DESMOND HIMSELF HAS NO WILL OF HIS OWN. WHEN HE WAS SPEAKING IN THE STATE HOUSE OF ASSEMBLY, HE WAS PLAYING TO THE GALLERY, MEANING HE WAS ACTING AS AN ACTOR THINKING THAT OUR LIVES ARE A NOLLYWOOD FILM. AFTER HE ACTED, THEY SAID, ‘THE FILM NO SWEET’. HE HAD TO DO PART TWO. HE WAS A STRONG MAN IN PART ONE OF THE FILM; IN PART TWO, HE WAS A CRYING BABY. DESMOND ELLIOT IS A PERSONIFICATION OF WHAT POLITICIANS IN NIGERIA ARE, DISHONEST ACTORS. HE IS JUST ACTING HIS ROLE AS THE GOVERNOR DID. HOW MANY LIES DID THE GOVERNOR SAY IN ONE WEEK ABOUT THE LEKKI SHOOTING? DESMOND ELLIOT IS NOW A NIGERIAN POLITICIAN OF THE TYPICAL ILK. HE IS NOT A REVOLUTIONARY POLITICIAN.”
