Son of Afrobeat Legend, Fela Anikulapo-Kuti, Femi Kuti , has reacted to the statement made by Wole Soyinka about tearing his green card over Donald trumps victory.
The literary icon pledged to keep a promise he had given a few days before the Nov. 8 election, when he told students at Oxford University that he will cut his green card and start packing up if Trump won the polls.
Femi Kuti was asked for his opinion concerning Soyinka’s ‘Green Card tearing ceremony’ in an interview with TheNetNg, Femi Kuti said:
“He should quickly tear it. “My question is why does he have a green card in the first place? “Africa is so beautiful, look at our landscape; there is so much to see in Africa.” The music legend also said that he wondered why most Nigerians took the American elections so personal, as he felt the outcome doesn’t really affect him or any average Nigerian.
Soyinka also said he will leave the United States by Jan. 20, 2017, the day president-elect Donald Trump will be inaugurated.
