Taking to her Instagram page, Jaiye Kuti slammed the veterans for begging for money online.
Addressing the backlash, Jaiye Kuti stated that she isn’t stopping ailing veterans from seeking help. However, she is decrying the rate at which many are misusing the opportunity for their selfish gains.
She said ; “I don’t just talk anyhow, people don’t understand what I am saying. I read over 500 comments and I am addressing those who misunderstood my message.
I didn’t say we should use social media to help people or that people should come out to ask for help, but my message is for those who want to spoil the industry’s name with begging.
I have also used my social media to seek help for people, and they have sent messages appreciating me.
I am talking to those who feel entitled to getting help because others are getting help from Nigerians. I told two of those veterans to not come out and beg for help so that when they are in dire need, they wouldn’t lack helpers.
Let only those who are sick, seek help, but those who are healthy, they should stop coming out to beg”.
