Afro beat singer Femi Anikulapo-Kuti had a run in with a supposed neighbour when the fellow came on twitter to roast the musician for having the temerity to remove his wire from their faulty transformer. According to the man, Femi should have followed in his father Fela’s footsteps by fighting for a new transformer.
The street where Femi Kuti resides has been having issues with their transformer for a long time and nothing has been done about it. Eventually tired of the constant blackouts, Femi ‘ported’ to the functioning transformer in the next street.
This did not go down well with his neighbours who felt that since he was a ‘freedom fighter’, Femi should have stayed to fight for them as well as suffer the darkness with them.
One of his neighbours took to twitter to drag the popular musician, but Femi wouldn’t have it and they ended up exchanging hot words:
When Femi Kuti saw this tweet below, he became provoked :
*sigh* but he has a right to port to wherever he wants now? This Nigeria ehn? If you’re not comfy, port too. No need for the twitter drama.
