legendary musician, Femi Kuti has charged Wole Soyinka to quickly tear his green card to honour the promise he made about tearing his green card if Donald Trump wins.
Since Trump’s victory, there’s been a lot of pressure on Wole Soyinka from Nigerians on social media who want to witness the ‘Card Tearing Ceremony’.
Femi kuti who is also cousin to Wole Soyinka added his voice to the issue when he quizzed why Wole Soyinka still has his green card intact.
”My question is, why does he have a green card in the first place.‘
And even though Wole Soyinka has reacted saying, ‘Let me end with a Red Card to those noisome creatures, the nattering nit-wits of Internet: maybe Trumpland is not as despicable as the Naijaland you impose on our reality from your secure cesspits of anonymity. Go back to school. Your problem is ignorance, ignorance of whatever subject you so readily comment upon. Learn to study your subject before opening up on issues beyond your grasp.’
The music legend also wondered why many Nigerians had even taken the American elections so personally, as he felt the outcome doesn’t really affect his or any average Nigerian’s situation here.
Femi Kuti, is a Nigerian musician born in London and raised in Lagos. He is the eldest son of afrobeat pioneer Fela Kuti
