Slamming those attacking him on social media over his assault on a police officer, Kuti said he was aware of Nigerian celebrities with felony charges, but fans never criticised them the way they did him.

He said, instead, fans celebrate and defend those criminal celebrities on social media.

He said: “I know at least three celebrities in Nigeria who have felony charges. Mine is a misdemeanour charge. Whether they talk as if heaven is falling and thunder is crashing, my charge is still a misdemeanour. If we are going to be just, assaulting a police officer is a misdemeanour. That is the charge I have.

Explaining why he will not reject the award, AY said, “Those of you shaming or asking me to reject ‘A National Honour’ are clearly missing a vital point. Our country is bigger and more important than any president or political party awarding it. National honour is the highest recognition anyone can get for his or her contributions to nation-building.

Responding to AY in a post on his Instagram page and story, Seun Kuti described the comedian’s explanation as unnecessary. And taunted the comedian to receive his ‘Buhari’ award and stop explaining.

“Let me reiterate. No be public opinion poll them take dey choose national award na by presidential committee then the president will accept the nomination of certain people. In as much as it’s a national honour, it’s a presidential appointment. Biko, receive your BUHARI award and stop to dey Shalaye.
