Seun Kuti is famous for being outspoken and not caring what other people may think of him. In the lead-up to the elections, he got engaged in a back-and-forth disagreement with Peter Okoye of the PSquare group over who should become the president of Nigeria. Kuti took to Instagram to express his views on the just-concluded elections and the political situation in Nigeria.

Seun Kuti suggested that the electorate was so desperate that they were willing to accept the lesser of three evils when it came to choosing a president. He conceded that while they were at least hoping to get the best of the three candidates, they got one of the best. Kuti pointed out that it is not uncommon for public figures to influence choices in Nigeria despite knowing that they are only thinking about themselves.
