The music star and son to the late music icon, Fela Kuti made this known via his Instagram page on Monday, October 15, 2018. According to Seun Kuti, everyone wants to be Fela without taking the sacrifice and the call to duty.
"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 spirit hobnobbing 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!!!" he said.
Hmmm...what do you guys think?
It feels like Seun Kuti is done with people who just want to take advantage of the Fela brand.
A typical example of Seun Kuti's outburst can be felt when he distanced his father's spirit from Kanye West.
Seun Kuti says the spirit of Fela isn't anywhere near Kanye West
Seun Kuti doesn't want Kanye West "famzing" with his late father, Fela, as he said his father's spirit isn't anywhere close to the American rapper. The music star and activist made this known via his Instagram page on Sunday, October 14, 2018. Seun's reaction was based on a video earlier posted by Kanye West where he said the spirit of Fela, Bob Marley, and 2Pac flows in him.
"Erm erm on behalf of the Kuti family, I want to state that the spirit of Olufela Anikulapo Kuti isn’t anywhere near Kanye West. @ziggymarley over to you. @oldmanebro come get ur boi before I #getthesax," Seun wrote.
Lol! Maybe Seun Kuti was a bit too hard on Kanye West as he probably was only appreciating the music legend, Fela Kuti. This might also be as a result of the vibes Kanye is getting at the moment as he is visiting Africa and has been listening to a number of indigenous songs.
