My grandmum would have rejected her face on new N5000 note – Seun Kuti

  
Seun Kuti's late grandma, political activist and doyen of female rights in Nigeria, Mrs Funmiayo Kuti, is one of the women whose face has been approved to appear on the proposed new N5, 000 bill, but in a Google+ hangout with Channels TV, the afrobeat musician said he doesn't think his grandma would have approved of her image being used on the note. 

Putting her face on a note is a real honour and a great way to immortalize a great woman. But I respect how Seun feels!

But seriously..what's the reason behind this N5000 note? a poor man can count the number of times he has seen N1000 note not to talk of N5000note. its only a device mechanism to keep the thieves and looters of this country on point with their looting activities.

He has the full right to stand for his grandmum... So stop accusing him. You ate the ones that has no single right to question him.

Annonymous 9:44pm is right. What does dis stupid dude know about his grand ma. He's just seeking public attention and u fools are giving it to him. How can he say for sure dat the woman will not want her face on the naira note. Seun abeg go sleep for ur house on Gbemisola street ikeja and stop seeking for notice. Crazy people

Yeah, you're quite confused.

You can try google though, it would still tell you what Mrs Kuti was about not to talk of her grand son. Going by the current state of the economy and security, we don't need an elder Kuti who lived with her to deduce that she would not have approved. Seun grew up right and knows his family values and what his grand mother and father stood for. That's a good child that has his head screwed on well.

You guys are hilarious,what do you mean by "what does he know about his grandma?" what do you know about his grandma. At least he is related to the woman.
Seriously Nigeria as a country is pretty much crumbling to pieces, and you small minded individuals are attacking him for standing up against such stupidity. There is absolutely no need to create a 5000 naira note, and to then decide to put a woman that advocated so strongly for a woman rights and the advancement of Nigeria on it, is the height of insult. We are using her image, identity and struggle to gift wrap our stupidity as a nation...well done guys! way to effing go

Ori gbogbo yin ko pe....truth is this is d most brilliant way to embezzle money as no one can prove how much d cost of producing new bills is. They said its N40b, I was expecting N1tr, since no BPE/Due Process cn question the quotations. Note-cost of production of new bills(paper money) has always been greater than the actual value of money produced.Fortunately, the exercise has been suspended. What u fools should be discussing is how to make permanent the decision not to produce the new bills. @Anonymous unconstructive'Gbagaun detector'

Are you guys for real? He has said nothing out of place. She would clearly not have approved of it or of any other dubious "honour" for that matter, being supposedly bestowed on her by this yeye govt.

Anonymous said...

So it is ok for descendants of other activists/political figures such as MLK, JFK and Medgar Evers to speak on behalf of their gone ancestor....even those that barely have a memory or never met them but when a Nigerian does it, he should go and "park well". How ridiculous! It's called legacy people! I'm sure it is going to be passed on even after Seun is long gone! Thus he has a right to speak on it! Now, on the issue of that N5,000 note....smh!

peter debby & sherl..., its better you ignore people like that 'anonymous' guy. People like that are so intellectually limited that they hardly know right from left. Always antagonistic and never seem to have the ability to be objective in their arguments. Ask the idiot to upload a profile and you'll be surprised to see he might just be a primary school dropout!

LOL Nigerians will NOT kill me! You're asking how he would know what his grandmum feels? How does CBN know how his grandmum would feel? How do any of you saying he should shut up know? Who has the most right to talk about her between him, the finance industry, and the Nigerian people? After they tossed her off a balcony like she was a sack of rice and no one paid for her murder you want to put her face on 5000 naira note. This is the same thing they did with MKO. You want to name a school after him..HOW DID HE DIE? All this hypocrisy in Nigeria and we're looking for God to come and save us *hiss*

The boy is just an attention seeker. He inherited his dad music, he couldnt even stand on his own like Femi did. He is merely trying to use Naija youths current bashing of the President and being in opposition to seek attention. Funmilayo Kuti is a grand mum to so many, he cant speak for all of them, he is merely speaking for himself. It is an honour to the woman, and who says being an acitvist shouldnt be recognised?
