Afro musician Femi Kuti has berated supporters of Labour Party presidential candidate for 2023, Peter Obi, also known as “Obidients,” as zombies.

Zombie was the title of a studio album released in 1976 by his late father, Fela Anikulapo Kuti, when he derided Nigerian soldiers as a bunch of robotic and senseless individuals. The song, which went on to be one of Fela’s greatest hits, followed a raid on his residence in Lagos at the time.

“You know what obedience means? Stand up, sit down, sit there — zombie,” Mr Kuti said during a performance at the Shrine Thursday night in Lagos, wondering why Mr Obi’s popularity has grown rapidly in recent months.

“How can you be Obidient in this chaos? I am not Obidient. Tell me, at 60, why am I Obidient? You said I should be Obidient, sit down, be peaceful,” he said. “Are you all okay in this country?”


Mr Obi’s candidature has garnered grassroots support from young Nigerians who see him as a better alternative to other candidates in the 2023 contest.

His campaign runs on the energy of young Nigerians who describe themselves as “Obidient” followers on social media.

Mr Kuti has not expressed support for any presidential candidate this cycle.

I like to believe that his statement was taken out of context. However, should his statement be directed at the Obidients, then he would have reasoned like a bastard in the great Fela's household and through his anus
Your father fought his entire life for the future of the now Obidient generation and was silenced all the time, sometimes through the use of force. He should try and listen to the lyrics on the Sorrows, tears and blood album of his father to understand a few things like the actual reason behind the 10/2020 Endsars uprising and the now Obidient movement. You can indeed fool some people sometime, but you can surely not fool all the people all the time. Obidients are people already pushed to the wall and you cannot push them any further. It is the voice of the suffering masses; the poor; the oppressed; the maimed; the marginalised; the abused; the wounded; etc

Exactly, his father's shoes have always been too big for him as said by fineboy77.  He has forgotten that he also lost his grandmother due to the fight.

Exactly. You can say that again. In fact, tribalism can be verbally denied, but action speaks louder than voice. He is a poor image of his father and what he represented.

Fela  kuti (of blessed  memories)   was not this stupid  .
From his songs someone  could understand  what he was actually singing about...
But his son has taken after  undried weed.
