Nigerian singer Seun Kuti has reacted to the alleged threats by the government to shut down the Afrika Shrine over his plans to hold the #EndSars movement meeting in its premises.
In a post shared via his Instagram page on Monday, November 16, 2020, the singer said the government called his older sister, Yeni Kuti, and threatened to close the shrine should he go ahead with the meeting.
“So yesterday the government called my eldest sister @yeniakuti and threatened to close the shrine if I hold my event there tmr and also sent a letter to back it up. I respect my family’s decision not to hold the event as is,” he wrote.

Kuti has been quite vocal both on social media and the protest grounds since the #EndSars movement began.
The Afrika Shrine is an open air entertainment centre located in Ikeja, Lagos State built by the late Fela Anikulapo Kuti in 1970.
It is currently being managed his eldest son Femi and daughter, Yeni, after it was burnt down in 1977.
