Seun Kuti, the Afrobeat singer, has confronted a man named Solomon Idowu who allegedly threatened to kill him at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos state.
In a now-viral video, Seun was seen engaging in a heated argument with Idowu. The incident occurred in the early hours of Friday.
The Afrobeat star was also seen hindering the man from presenting his passport for boarding a plane to the US.
In his response, Idowu threatened to make phone calls and take action against the singer.
“Dude, I am not from here, I am American. You just put your hands on me. You gonna find out. Yes, I am going home because this is not gonna end well for you. Do not make me make phone calls. I am going home,” he said.
Seun, on the other hand, insisted Idowu was not going back until they settled their case in Nigeria.
“Dude, nobody is taking your passport. You have a case in this country. You are not going anywhere,” he said.

In a follow-up video, Idowu was seen affirming that no harm would befall Seun if he traveled to Chicago.
“If anything happens to Seun in Chicago, I will be responsible. If it comes from me, it will be never. Because of miscommunication and I threatened his life.” he said.
