Yeni Kuti has given her own suggestion on how corruption can be reduced or removed from Nigeria, according to her, involving fearsome African deities, could do a lot more good.
In an interview with Classic Fm the first daughter of the late Afrobeat icon, Fela Anikulapo-Kuti, said no one would steal money if government officials are made to swear by Ogun and other African deities instead of Holy bible and Quran.
“let them use ‘Juju’ to swear in government officials and we shall see if anybody will continue to steal our money in this country or not.
“I am sure that if they are made to swear by Ogun or some other fearsome African deity, there will be no more corruption,” she said.
“I believe in life after death. Also I believe that if my father has a message for me, he will come directly to me and not go through someone I don’t know or like. If anybody tells me that Fela has sent a message to me through him, I would tell him to ask my dad to appear to me directly himself,” she said.
When asked if her father’s hatred for religion influenced her, she said “my choice of religion was not largely influenced by Fela.
“It is not that my father made me to embrace it through indoctrination; I learnt and I actually believe in it. As a matter of fact, Fela’s arguments in defence of the traditional African religion were enough to convince me.”
“When I was a young girl and I knew nothing about his dislike for what he often described as ‘foreign religions’ (Christianity and Islam), I used to visit the Braithwaites and accompany them to church on Sundays. When Fela heard of it, he warned me never to use the allowance he gave me for offering in the church. I can’t forget it,”
While further urging Nigerians to stop being hypocrites, adding that some people professed to be devout Christians or Muslims by day, yet sneaked out at night to consult local herbalists or diviners.
“What they are doing is wrong. It is either you belong to this or you belong to the other,” Yeni added.
