Seun Kuti identifies those responsible for poor people selling votes.

identifies those responsible for poor people selling votes.

He claimed that professionals from the entertainment sector and other industries sell their skills to politicians for their own gain have an influence on their choice.

On the Afrobeats Podcast with Adesope Olajode, Seun asserted that it has an impact on people’s thinking when they see celebrities accepting money in exchange for utilizing their fame to support dishonest political officials.

The singer believes it is diabolical and hypocritical for government employees, attorneys, journalists, and bankers to criticize voters solicit donations in order to support a certain candidate or political while also supporting or working for corrupt public officeholders.


The poor, he claimed, watch what people in the middle class do to bribe politicians and lead extravagant lives, and they conclude that buying votes is the only way for them to receive their fair share.

In his word :

“I say to people all the time, that why Nigerians sell their votes because all you professionals, leading up to the election, you sell your talent to this people, the only thing the common man have is his vote. I mean there is no way anybody in Nigeria will sell their vote if the Journalist did not sell his worth, if the civil servant did not sell his service, if Lawyer did not sell Law, if Judge did not sell Judgment, If oil worker did not sell our diesel, If banker did not launder, if musician did not sing, we all sell and the poor people see us selling and making a killing and it reach their own turn…”
