Quote of the day - from Seun Kuti

"I feel Rick Ross big belly is more worthy of criticism than his video. Is he saying it’s right to be obese?” The Afro Beat musician said this on Rubbing Minds this afternoon when he was asked for his opinion on the Rick Ross video for 'Hold Me Back' shot in Nigeria

SEUN on point once again......4 those who kept saying RICK ROSS said d truth abt 9ja remember he is out there in America potraying his ''OBESSITY'' like is all gud...1Luv Seun, GOD BLESS 9ja peace .

Na me! said...

Abeg Seun please lets hear word. You'll never be as good as Femi, and we wont mention your dad.
I dont care for Rick Ross, but I dont like arrogance.

What is Seun saying with his songs, "is he saying it is right to be scrawny and hungry looking?"

He'll always be known as Fela's son, and even that, one wishes folks can do DNA testing and confirm that one's real paternity.

Nigerians jsst hate to be told d hard truth... I completely agree wit Ross' vid, we re poor people even doe we r rich in resources. Its calld REALITY

BigMike said...

I will f*** Rick Ross up when I grow up financially. F*** I'm Nigerian n we are both Americans. When I hit millions in dollars I know where to find him. He disrespected Naija n Nigerians cos we Hv no laws. U cant come to Yankee n shoot video just anywhere. Ask Naija musicians who shoot videos overseas. U must seek permission.

seun dats not the point here...if u ask me about the video. i support it 100 percent..it's a call to say shame on we Nigerians. those people at the zanga have not even gained any recognition from the government, talkless of artisits like M.I and eedris who gave ridiculous comments. It's only da Grin (May his soul rest in perfect peace) who has even shot a proper video to recognize those in the zanga. So it's a big shame if rickross ll the way from america cn come here and recognize true nigerians from the hood.

Kenneth said...

You sound and look like a pretender to say you never paid attention,heard,listen and seen his videos before. Come Aunty pls leave a real life and stop farming holy holy to please people.

It's an advice.

Nigerian artists are jealous of Rick Ross. Leave the man alone. If he wants to be fat and die young, then na him business be dat. He once collasped and almost died.

Obesity can also be classified as a diesase. Not all obese people eat too much. The bodies of some of them refuse to born fat calories.

Nigerians should welcome EREKE or sons and daughters of former slaves like Rick to Nigeria and not hound them down.

Dr. Pinch said...

What rubbish, who's Rick Ross if I may ask? Is he president Obama? The poor girl could be saying the truth. I bet my sisters don't know who Rick Ross is cos he doesn't do their kind of music. My sisters will rather listen to CC Winas, Marry Marry or any other gospel song. And yes they are in this world Abuja to be precise.Please you guys should let the poor girl be already. Nonsense Rick Ross is now God abi Jesus christ that everyone must know him.

freebike7 said...

if am right,.. Seun should not or wats ever criticise rozay in ani form cos the video is inline wit he's father legacy(fela) not 4rm him Abeg,

We de drink garri n pretend say na burger we dey chop...

Hugo said...

Watin concern obesity and the video hold me back? This is simply a fallacy as I was taught in philosophy and logic. Attacking the person instead of the question.

Eze said...

There are some slim people that wish they were fat like RickRoss.He likes the way he is plus he is getting money by the minute, so what yall say cant penetrate nothing.

Oga said...

it is a free world

Ahdaisy Jayde said...

Biko, why must I listen to his music? I did not say I've never heard of him...I said, I have never paid attention to him or heard his song. Its only on this blog that I got to know him. What can he add to me spiritually, mentally, academically, financially, socially and physically?

Those of you attacking me, i hope he at least gave you free tickets to his show when he came to Nigeria...mscheeuw...or maybe you were featured in the 'hold me back' video...lol

gbenga said...

Nawa 4 u o,u no sabi rick ross and u owned a blog,shame on people who visits ur blog....mtcheeeeeeeew:::::imagine u don't know the hottest rapper on earth presently and hw many videos has seun shot in nigeria instead he goes abroad and moreover is there any lie in the video.

SEUN KUTI SHOULD GO AND SIT DOWN SOMEWHERE ABEG. BECAUSE NO ONE HAS OPENED HIS BOX OF DISGRACEFUL INFORMATION ABI? WHY SHOULD HE OPENLY SPEAK OF ANOTHER PERSON IN A DEROGATORY MANNER? I'M SURE A LOT OF PEOPLE ALSO HAVE A LOT TO SAY ABOUT HIM (NOT THAT WE DON'T KNOW THE SORT OF MATERNAL LINEAGE HE HAS) WHAT TALENT DOES THIS SEUN HAVE SELF.
FEMI KUTI WOULD NOT DO THIS. ABEGI TRASH AND CLASS SHOULD NOT BE COMPARED.

Let me ask a question to all who have posted on this link about RR weight... Do u think he cares in the slightest about ur opinons? No, he doesn't! The guy is proberly overseas right now, at some location none of you have the money or insight to know about, laughing his fat ass all the way to the bank. He takes his top off for one reason only and thts to say: "yes I'm fat... but I'm rick too!" Which one would all u critic rather be... Slim but broke with financial worries or Fat as f*ck but made $9m in this year? To be honest I'd rather be fat and paid. Its not like women these days care how hansome you are, its more how hansome is your bank account. And its for this reason he boasts his big belly to show you tht money and fame goes allong way in this world truth be told. I do agree tht the video was abit explotative but its nothing we as nigerians didn't know was happening in our country. I think ppl are jus upset tht our dirty laundery has been shown to the western world. Its like an alcholic uncle u don't want ur new girlfriends family to meet. End of the day he's still ur family but u jus don't want it exposed. Like one blogger wrote, if it had been lekki or some developed part of the country ppl would be proud and support him. All the nigerians who live in an imaginary atmosphere of their own who forget over 50% of the nation lives below what is considered extreme poverty. Like tht girl in another blog post who goes to UK 6 times a year to spend £5,000 a trip thinking its cool to boast off about her shopping experience when the majority of nigerians cants spend N5000 in the same amount of time. WAKE THE F*CK UP!!! Nigeria is suffering ppl!!! Any foreginer who comes to nigeria is not gonna go back saying the place is beautifully when they pay attention to the stuff most upperclass nigerians overlook.

M.I didn't ridicule the video.. What he tried to say was that its a shame that we allowed a foreigner tell the story of our sufferings, we need to wake up and fight our cause ourselves.. Understand something before u post baseless comments

dolapo said...

@Gbenga. You are very right. Naija artist like seun and MI just dey beef d guy for nothing. They should step up their game and shoot more videos in naija too rather than going to UK or Southy to shoot video. Rozay you are the best.

Americans also shoot videos in d slum...so dia is ntin wrong wit wat rick did..olamida has dne a video like dat. Nd nigerian artist shud stop being jealous, dat was eidris aldukareem insulted himself infront of 50 sent manx year ago. Nevertheless we shud support our own outside, nd stop takin sides wit a 4reiner..rick does nt care abt naija like seun does..datr if rick cares at all

Anonymous said...

Gbenga seriously he is the hottest rapper ryt now hmmmmm eff the eff out joor we mustn't know him oh until I saw the video he did with psqaure I had no idea who he was. So y'all can spew whatever it is you wanna but knowing him or not knowing him hasn't bettered our existence. Ok have any of ever heard of Zhane? Or the song life of a stranger? I bet you haven't please we all hv our preferences when it comes to the arts so y'all had better hush up. I hear a lot of nigerian music but I don't even hv any on my playlist and I don't know most nigerian artists and I hv never left naija before.

Your point being that as a big boy he reserves the ryt to be obese ok point taking.

If you ask me, we are what we wanna be cos me my papa stop to pay my school fees @ the age of 19 and it didn't stop me from being a lawyer today sha. As far as i'm concerned I didn't singing de niggar wan hol me bck won't help naija or its poor ppl looking for pity a lot of ppl hv it worse yet are what keeps them going is the will to survive. It's high time we started thinking out ways o better our lives than wait for Rick Ross to come and make us look life our suffer head n em bad pass..go to India you'll be surprised that what you see in movies is just a mirage. What is stopping the ppl leaving in the so called slums to wake up and try as much as possible to keep their slum clean? My dear I have lived in a private hostel and when I had a caretaker, you would never see anyone poor water from their windows bcos the ppl leaving there were ppl of class when the management decided to take any kind of tenant, they carried their slum mentality to the place and as of ryt now u can't even imagine what the place loom like. All i'm trying to say is that poverty is a disease bcos trust me if tha diseased is not cured you can choose to.relocate all those slum dogs (no offence) to London give them 6months, London will begin to look like the slum u removed them from. It's high time we stopped depending on our govt for everything bcos even if that slum is refurbished and d ppl don't observe simple rules to keep the place clean my dear that place will still revert back to being a slum.
