Nigerian sensational music star, Seun Kuti has shared his opinion on why blacks must strive towards perfection before they can be respected.

Taking to his Instagram page, Seun said the notion that blacks must strive towards perfection before they can be respected is laughable. According to him, many blacks are trying to outwhite the whites forgetting hoe their ancestors suffered in their land. He wrote: “Black excellence is vibrant, artistic athletic, intelligent, beautiful but it’s fatal flaw? It’s IRRESPONSIBLE!!! The excellent blacks forget not all Africans can be excellent and if our humanity is suddenly pegged at excellent and perfect what happens to all of us who don’t fit into this category.

Most Africans are normal, we can’t jump or run fast. We can’t sing and dance or make beautiful clothes. We are just normal people. I don’t get it? Are we saying the entire African people must strive for perfection and excellence before we are respected as humans? Moreover many of the images I see promoting this ideology is basically African people trying to ‘outwhite the whites’!!

And many of them have white peoples name sprawled all over them and they say it’s a brand and I’m like yea, that’s what they called it when they burnt it into the skin of your ancestors also, 200 years later and u are branding urself in the name of success. #getthesax
