Seun Kuti, Nigerian Afrobeats singer, has finally responded to allegations that he physically and verbally assaults his wife.
Seun was heard yelling at his wife in a viral video during his argument with a police officer, leading many Nigerians to speculate that the singer’s wife may be a victim of domestic violence.
Defying the reports, during a recent Instagram live session with fans, Seun stated that his wife is not afraid of him, but rather that he is afraid of her.
Those close to his family, can attest to the fact that he is the one who is afraid of his wife.
Seun Kuti noted that those speculating the rumours are jealous to see a man talk to his wife and she listened.
He added that he has never even hit his 9-year-old daughter before.
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.”
