Yesterday, at the grand finale of Felabration 2015, Femi Kuti took to the stage and declared the former President Olusegun Obasanjo was a bad leader who failed to move Nigerian forward.

 “Olusegun Obasanjo was a bad leader. He did not do well for Nigeria. He ruled this country three times but has nothing to show for it. They called the soldiers that burnt Kalakuta Republic and killed my grandmother unknown soldiers” said Femi Kuti.

He also said that the federal government has yet to apologize to the Anikulapo-Kuti over the death of Fela’s mother who was killed by ‘unknown soldiers’ who burnt down Kalakuta Republic. There are also plans by the Lagos state government to build a museum for Fela Kuti.

"The Federal Government is yet to apologise for their action against the Kuti family. Whether they like it or not, Fela was one of the biggest stars from Africa. As the days go by, people are beginning to understand the importance of his music. The Lagos State Government is building a museum in his honour.

"The family does not have that kind of money to build a museum. It is not the governor’s money but the state government money. But the governor took the decision on behalf of the people” he said.
