Image result for seun kutiLate Fela Anikulapo-Kuti’s son,  Seun Kuti, has attacked American rapper and Kim Kardashian’s husband, Kanye West,for claiming Fela’s spirit flows through him. Rapper Kanye West speaks during his meeting with US President Donald Trump in the Oval Office of the White House in Washington, DC, on October 11, 2018. (AFP0   The American rapper made the statement in a video he posted on Twitter, where he bragged that he’s the best rapper, musician in the world “The music is the best on the planet. I am the best living recording artiste. We, rather, because the spirits flow through me.

 

Only Way To Truly Honour Fela Is To Be Unapologetically Against Oppressors, Says Seun Kuti

"Fela sing against MKO una vote am. Fela sing against Obasanjo una vote am. Fela sing against Buhari una vote am. Now una go still vote for Atiku. Where is the love? Nigerian people, make una talk true na. Who’s fooling who? The only way to truly honour Fela is to be unapologetically against oppressors," he said.

 

 

The spirit of Fela, the spirit of Marley, the spirit of 2Pac flows through me. We know who the best is”, he said. Reacting to Kanye’s claim, which he probably innocently made out of the musical influence Felamust have had on him, Seun said. “On behalf of the Kuti family, I want to state that the spirit of Olufela Anikulapo-Kuti isn’t anywhere near Kanye West.” Recall that in 2017, Kanye West was reportedly treated for bipolar disorder after he suffered mental exhaustion.Who knows, Seun may probably have been stylishly alluding to Kanye’s mental instability when he said the spirit of Fela wasn’t anywhere close to the celebrated rapper.

 

 

Seun Kuti, one of the sons of the late Afrobeats Icon, Fela Kuti has said everyone wants to be like the late musician “just because they want to smoke igbo and chase women", rather than promote the ideals of the late musician.

 

In a post on his Instagram page to celebrate the 80th posthumous birthday of his father, Seun Kuti said most rappers just mention Fela’s name to align with greatness, and that most of them often ignore the sacrifice the late singer made. 

 

His words: "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 hobnobbing with white supremacists; they think you are great because rappers mention your name. They don’t know that rappers mention your 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!!!

 

“Una never ready!! The only way to stop being a victim is to become the enemy of your oppressor!! Franz Fanon! Una just dey vex say Una dey betray Una sef

 

"Fela sing against MKO una vote am. Fela sing against Obasanjo una vote am. Fela sing against Buhari una vote am. Now una go still vote for Atiku. Where is the love? Nigerian people, make una talk true na. Who’s fooling who? The only way to truly honour Fela is to be unapologetically against oppressors."

 

 

Fela is known for using his music to speak to government and the society. The singer is celebrated every year in a week-long event at the Afrika Shrine, Alausa, Lagos. This year, the celebration started on Monday October 15 and would last till October 21.
