Why I Refused To Allow 2face Idibia Use Afrikan Shrine For Protest – Femi Kuti
Afrobeat singer, Femi Kuti, has revealed he turned down 2face Idibia’s request to use the Afrika Shrine for a nationwide protest on February 6, so that the federal government will not close down the popular hangout.
While performing at the Afrika Shrine last night (Thursday), Femi admitted that 2face had come to him to ask if he could use the venue.
NET reports he said: “I hear say they want to do protest here, they even choose the day Sunday, Sunday is my day.
“So I was thinking, 2face say some people come meet am say make he broadcast am, so no be him sit down for him house com plan am, I for no vex.
“Who be the people wey come meet you?” he questioned.
Femi also said he was not comfortable with the entire arrangement, as it was planned without him, before he was approached for the use of the place.
He also had fears about the Afrika Shrine being shut down.
The demonstration has since been scheduled to take place at the National Stadium in Lagos and the Unity Fountain in Abuja on Monday morning.
Although the Lagos Police Commissioner, Fatai Owoseni, has warned the artiste against it, 2face on Friday announced the dress code for the march .
