In celebration of the 80th post-humous birthday of his father Fela Anikulapo Kuti, Seun Kuti called out all those people who love to claim to be the new Fela. According to him, such people think being Fela is all about smoking weed and womanizing.
He went on to state that many of them do not put into consideration that Fela was an activist in his days. Instead, the wannabees are seen hanging out with all those oppressing black people.
Read his post below.
People will never understand you without going through the education you have tried to promote. Every Tom Dick And Ashy is the new Fela just because they want to smoke igbo and chase women. How about the sacrifice? How about duty? They want to be Fela and at the same time be the darlings of all the oppressors. All these new Fela’s and those possessed by his sprit hob nobbing with white supremacists. They think u are great because rappers mention your name,they don’t know that rappers mention ur name so they can feel greatness. What do they know about sacrifice? What do they know about the trauma that first hand violence has inflicted on our family? The blind leading the blind listening to the deaf speak! Happy 80th. The struggle intensifies!!!’
