Seun Kuti, Nigerian Afrobeat singer, has called out the Academic Staff Union of Universities and Adamu Adamu, the minister of education, for keeping mum on the #SexForGrades scandals.


On Monday, BBC Africa Eye released a 53-minute documentary which exposed how Boniface Igbeneghu, the head pastor of a Foursquare Gospel Church and lecturer at the University of Lagos (UNILAG), requested sex from female students in exchange for high grade.

Ever since, heated criticisms have trailed the scandals as many former students also recounted similar experience during their university days.

Joining the fray, Kuti took to Twitter to tackle Adamu and ASUU for not addressing the public after the documentary was released.



The talented singer adopted the Nigerian pidgin to vent his disappointment on the minister and the union.


“Oga Adamu Adamu Minister Of Education We Still Dey Wait Your Response About Dis Sex For Grade And Admission, No Try Behave Like Say U No Hear, Dis Wahala Concern U As D Minister,” he wrote.

“We Still Dey Wait For Asuu Response About Dis Sex For Grade And Admission Wahala For All Our University.


“Asuu Leaders Make Una No Pretend Like Say Una No Hear All Dis Noise About Una Members Accuse Of Sex For Grades In Our Unis, If Na Una Money Struggle Now, Una Go Expect Both Activists And Students To Rise And Fight For Una, Now D Students Need Una To Rise And Fight For Dem Too.

“Oga Adamu Adamu Wetin U B Minister Of Education For Wen Der Is A National Issue Affecting All Our Unis And U No Fit Tell Us Govt Position On Dis, R U In Support Of D Lecturers Demanding Sex For Grades Ni, Abi Why We Never Hear From U About It As D Minister Of Education.”

The UNILAG scandal comes nearly a year after Richard Akindele, a former lecturer of the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), was accused of sexual harassment.
