Seun Kuti, Nigeria’s Afrobeat singer, has called on Africans to be cautious of the coronavirus as death is close by.

The 37-year-old son of Fela Kuti, late Afrobeat legend, took to his Instagram page to join celebrities who have since been baring their thoughts on the COVID-19 outbreak — which has left both developing and developed nations in panic.

Seun accused global leaders of greed, arguing that developed nations have invested more in the destruction of the planet instead of preserving it for posterity.

“All the hundreds of billions of dollars spent on defence has actually been spent on destroying the other, not protecting humanity or the planet,” he wrote.

“Corona has shown me that the so called developed nations have invested more in the destruction of the planet and humans than they have invested in nourishing and preserving tomorrow.

“It’s obvious that the world is unprepared to defend itself from a real enemy! It is clear that all you can do as defence is blow up black and brown people and destroy the environment.

“Hunger is killing thousands every day but where is the hysteria on that? Listen, if you are African, take care but also you know death is close by. No be corona kill them for Amuwo Odofin ooo!”

Nigeria had recently confirmed five new cases of COVID-19, at a time when the global death toll from the disease had exceeded 9,000 with more than 200,000 infected across over 100 countries.
