Grammy-nominated singer Seun Kuti has alleged a threat to his life.

The 40-year-old in a recent video on Instagram accused some unnamed persons of wanting to “destroy and kill” him for speaking the “truth.”

Seun Kuti said he has lost count of court cases and police invitations he has received over the years.

He said: “I will reveal it here today. They want silent me for this country. I can’t tell you how many wars I am fighting alone. I can’t tell you how many cases in court for nothing, how many police invitations left, right and centre for nothing. For just saying the truth, everybody is inviting the police on me.

“Because I am saying the truth, they are trying to destroy and kill me. They are trying to bring me down and destroy my name. It’s not easy. They have been silencing speakers of the truth since 705 BC.”
