- Seun Kuti, son of late Afrobeats founder and legend, Fela Kuti has reacted to the viral ‘plane seat’ topic between Nobel laureate, Wole Soyinka and another passenger.
This happened a few hours after oil mogul Tonye Cole reported that a young man requested Wole Soyinka to vacate his allotted seat in the plane. This act has sparked reactions from different angles of social media.
Some people tied the rope of criticism around the young man’s neck while other users tried to untie the rope by claiming the man had the full right to ask the 80-year-old man to leave his allotted plane seat.
Seun Kuti has also reacted to the topic via his Instagram page, he wrote;
‘That being said, the Nigerian professional class is callous and exemplified by this whole WS issue. The only culture they know is Agbada and how to respect elders. Just aesthetics nothing concrete. This ‘respecting elders’ is just an excuse not to stand up to elders!! To go around sucking up and kisses donkeys!( u know the right word). Ask them other than their agbada and ‘respecting elders’ what other african culture do they practice or hold higher than European and Arabic ideals. Ask them, the answer is Zero, Zilch, Nada. Respecting the elders the Nigerian professional class’ shelter as they continue to collude and connive to destroy us! Wole Soyinka doesn’t mind, he never ‘respected elders’ in his own days.’
