Legendary Afrobeat singer, Femi Kuti has denied reports stating that he called supporters of Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi, zombies.

Some news platforms had earlier reported that the veteran had condemned Obi supporters known as Obidients for blindly supporting him.

Some news reports claimed that he outrightly referred to them as zombies.

This happened Thursday night during his performance on Thursday at the Fela Shrine.

He said: “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. Are you all okay in this country?”

Reacting to the alleged zombie comment, the singer took to Twitter to state that his words were taken out of context.

He explained that he does not like the term Obidient but if Peter Obi wins and changes Nigeria, then it’s for the best of everyone.

He replied one of the news platforms on Twitter, saying: “You are such liars. Of what benefit is it to the people when you take my words out of context like this?

“I said I am too angry at my age to be Obedient. Expressing I do not like the ‘term’. But if Peter Obi wins and actually changes the country, better for all of us.”
