GOVERNMENT SHOULD BAN CIGARETTE FOR MARIJUANA-SEUN KUTI
The late Afrobeat legend's son, Fela Anikulapo Kuti, Seun has declared a war against cigarette smokers and implored the Federal government to ban it and legalise Marijuana. After commending his brother Femi Kuti's exciting performance alongside him on Stage at the concluded 2012 Felabration concert at the Afrika Shrine, Seun Kuti broached an argument supporting smoking marijuana against smoking cigarettes.
Seun condemned the non-legalizing of Marijuana like cigarette, suggesting that the position of the law on the two products was illogical.
In his submission, the favored cigarette has lethal consequences, while the legally opposed marijuana was medicinal and good for human consumption. But, Seun said, the killing cigarette was favored because it was to the white man's profit, stressing that marijuana would make black countries richer than the white if legalized. His argument is an absolute face off with cigarette consumption while beckoning marijuana to the spotlight.
“This song is about the good leaf; ewe rere. Me I nor dey say make Government legalize Igbo o. If Government like, them legalize am. If Government like, them nor legalize am. I'm smoking it mehn! Our politicians nor get sense. Because the white man talk say Igbo nor good, them follow dem talk say Igbo nor good. But now, in the United States of America, dem dey smoke Igbo legally.” Igbo doesn't kill, but cigarette dey kill. Because cigar na white man's business, as far as you write 'Smokers are liable to die young', it becomes legal,'' Seun said it in one of his lyrics when he mounted the stage in the last Felabration.
Seun suggested that the west advised the black politicians against legalizing marijuana because they knew it would make the black countries rich.
“Why not also put Igbo in a box and write Igbo smokers are liable to go crazy young?”, he quipped.
Seun encouraged further in songs; “plant am make e grow… e good, e good, e goodu well well… plant am make e grow”.
“Marijuana is medical, and I feel Cigarette is selling legally because it is white man's business. It is killing millions of people everyday.. Igbo is not killing anybody. Marijuana is not only for smoking. It's used for a lot of things; you can make clothes, you can drink tea, it is good, it is medicinal, it helps your appetite, they give it to cancer patients… a lot of benefits”, he explained
