Oluseun Anikulapo Kuti, otherwise known as Seun Kuti has claimed to have been responsible for the call that led to the sack of Nigerian popular controversial blogger, David, Hundeyin by Oxford University.
Hundeyin was terminated from Oxford University in the UK for behavior that was potentially misogynistic, racketeering, and other issues.
According to Cherwell, a weekly student publication produced solely by Oxford University students, Onyeka Nwelue, a Nigerian author, and Hundeyin were dismissed from the institution after organizing a “fraudulent” book premiere for Hundeyin’s most recent book together on Oxford University property.
Further evidence revealed Hundeyin and Nwelue’s exploitation of the university community by asking £20 for admission to African Studies Center activities, which are typically free.
Misogynism and sexism charges were prominent in the behavior that resulted in Hundeyin and Nwelue’s dismissal, which coincided with the fraudulent event for which the institution held them responsible.
A student was quoted as saying, “A key point of concern occurred when a question was asked by an attendee to Hundeyin concerning the issue of sexism and sexual harassment that African female journalists endure. Hundeyin replied with the implication that women who were of a fair complexion, tall and had long legs would not face hurdles to their career advancement in journalism.”
Taking to his Instagram page, Seun Kuti admitted that he made the call and reported David.
