Seun Kuti, son of late Afrobeat legend, Fela Anikulapo Kuti, has heavily criticised the current administration. In a series of tweets on Monday afternoon, the singer expressed his sadness over policies of the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government. Seun lamented that nothing is working in the country and that the youths are neglected. In a message he wrote mainly in pidgin English, he wondered what the government is doing concerning the education sector.
