Seun Kuti, an Afrobeats musician, has finally responded to allegations that he verbally and physically assaults his wife.
Recall that Kuti’s wife was suspected of being a victim of domestic violence after her husband was heard screaming at her during an altercation with a police officer in a viral video.
During a recent Instagram live session with fans, Kuti stated that his wife is not afraid of him, but rather that he is afraid of her.
He claimed that those acquitted alongside his family could testify to this.
The singer said, “The most important rumour I must dispel, is the one they said that I’m beating my wife. They said I screamed at her to get into the car [in the viral video] and she went into the car…That she is scared of me. My wife is not scared of me. Trust me, if you know anybody that knows us, I’m the one that’s scared of my wife. But my wife respects me.
“And I know that many of you Nigerian men were just jealous to see a man that can talk to his wife and his wife would listen. That’s the problem. It’s jealousy.”
He added that he has never even hit his 9-year-old daughter before.
