He responded to Ojo's remarks accusing him of confusing young people by supporting VeryDarkMan, a controversial social media figure.

Kuti labeled Ojo as "an oppressor" and denied being a "confusionist," clarifying that his disagreement with Iyabo Ojo’s criticism of VeryDarkMan's arrest is purely based on their social media clash.

Speaking in a video posted on his Instagram, the Afrobeat singer said: “I have watched your video, Iyabo [Ojo], but throughout the video, you’re just talking about what VeryDarkMan did, yet you said I was the one you were calling out.

“But there is one thing that I hold onto, you said I’m a confusionist confusing the youths. [Yoruba] This life is wicked. I’ve been on your podcast before because I bear you no grudge. I bear you no ill will. I stand personal beef. But when it’s political… It was you guys who politicized the death of Mohbad.

“You politicised his death. And I don’t believe you guys politicised his death because you were looking for justice because now what’s the findings? Did you accept the government’s findings? I read somewhere that the government said Mohbad died of substance abuse. If you guys believe the government findings, what are we doing? Justice for what?

“I believe personally, it was a movement against Naira Marley at the end of the day. I don’t see anything other than that. You said we are fighting against bullying in Nigerian society and 70-80 percent of celebrities are cultists.

“These are gangs of bullies. Bullies bully everybody yet everyone is their friend. The gangs constantly bully people and celebrities are their members.

“Everybody is a friend of these members, nobody called them out for associating with gangs even after what happened to Mohbad. What’s happening? Is there any movement against confraternities in Nigeria? Where is the movement for justice for Mohbad now?”
