Desmond Elliot Does Not Stand For Anything – Seun Kuti Blows Hot

Seun Kuti, the popular Afrobeat musician and social crusader, attacked Desmond Elliott.

Kuti said Lagos State legislator and animator Desmond Elliot is a man who stands for nothing.

The legislator has received backlash from the public since a video of him appeared in the Lagos State House of Assembly, where he called young Nigerians ‘children’ and sought regulation of social media.

In an exclusive interview with The Punch, the Grammy Award-nominated musician claimed that the Nigerian people have given the legislator a new name, Desmond Idiot; which is the name given to the legislator.

He said: “There is no one like Desmond Elliot, his new name among the people of Nigeria is Desmond Idiot. That insult that you don’t like, his real name is Desmond Idiot. His name is Hon. Desmond Idiot. Being young is not an ideology. A man like Desmond represents nothing. He is also a beneficiary of that sponsorship system that has been used to establish all other people in Nigeria. There is nothing special about where it is. You are not there for talent, knowledge or skill; he is there because those oppressors we complain about chose him to represent them there.

He continued: “Desmond himself has no will of his own. When he spoke in the House of the State Assembly, he was performing for the gallery, which means he was acting as an actor thinking that our lives are a Nollywood movie. After he acted, they said, ‘the movie is not sweet.’ I had to do the second part. He was a strong man in the first part of the movie; in the second part, it was a crying baby. Desmond Elliot is a personification of what politicians are in Nigeria, dishonest actors. He is simply playing his role as the governor did. How many lies did the governor tell in a week about the Lekki shooting? Desmond Elliot is now a typical Nigerian politician. He is not a revolutionary politician ”.
