Recall that Soyinka was reported to have declared that he will tear his American green card and head back to his country if the Republican candidate won the election, and later shifted the date of performing his vow on the day the President-elect would be sworn in.
Following reactions by social media commentators on when the pen icon would tear the green card, Soyinka asked everyone to mind their business as he would be the one to tear his card at his own time and not a time fixed by critics.
When asked for his opinion concerning Soyinka’s ‘Green Card tearing ceremony’ in an interview with TheNetNg, Femi Kuti said: “He should quickly tear it.
“My question is why does he have a green card in the first place?
“Africa is so beautiful, look at our landscape; there is so much to see in Africa.”
The music legend added that he wondered why most Nigerians took the American elections so personal, as he felt the outcome doesn’t really affect him or any average Nigerian.
