Prominent flutist and musician, Tee Mac Omatshola Iseli, has announced that he holds All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, in high esteem.
He said that he was setting the records straight, following the backlash that trailed his comments on Asiwaju Tinubu.
In an interview with Arise TV yesterday, the popular flutist expressed displeasure that his comments about the APC presidential candidate were taken out of context.
He said: “Well, Senator Oluremi (Asiwaju Tinubu’s wife) is Itsekiri. Her mother and my mother are cousins. So, we are related. Asiwaju Tinubu is my in-law. Asiwaju Tinubu has been a music fan his whole life. I have seen him at many events. I saw him at an African Music Award. When you’re out in publicity and you need music, you become friends.
“I was taken out of context. I replied on social media to someone with who we used to converse, and it went viral. I have no negative thoughts or negativity over the candidacy of Asiwaju Tinubu.
“I feel uncomfortable that it went viral. I respect Tinubu. I’ve known him for over 20 years. I was shocked by a statement taken out of context. They went to my Instagram, and all media outlets took it up. I didn’t feel well that the remarks went viral.
“If Tinubu becomes the President, he knows me. I’ll be there to advise.”
