Son of the legendary Afrobeat godfather, Fela Kuti, Seun Kuti, has reacted to a controversial remark credited to Pope Francis concerning adultery and its placement in the severity of transgressions.
Reacting to this, the singer and saxophonist shared his thoughts via his Instagram page as he called on embattled couples to forgive their spouses amid Pope’s claim.
Recall that Pope Francis, the leader of the Catholic Church had said lovemaking outside of marriage is not the “most serious” sin.
According to reports, the Pope made this claim on Monday during a question and answer session with reporters on a flight back to Italy from Greece.
He was quoted as saying, “Sins of the flesh are not the most serious.
“It was a failing against the sixth commandment (You shall not commit adultery) but not a total one, one of small caresses, massage given to his secretary – that is what the accusation is – there is a sin there but not the worst kind.”
Pope’s claim has continued on the discussion, triggering Seun Kuti’s reaction on an Instagram post with the caption, “Pope said it’s not so bad to commit adultery (bad boy) so wives forgive your husbands but more importantly, HUSBANDS FORGIVE YOUR WIVES.”
