Seun Kuti – Fela’s Spirit Lives Only Within His Family, Not Outsiders

Seun Kuti, the son of Fela Anikulapo Kuti, the late Afro music legend, has said it is quite disrespectful of anyone to claim he or she is the new Fela. The outspoken member of the Anikulapo Clan mentioned this while on a show at a radio station in Lagos, Cool FM where he interacted with popular OAP Dotun.

He stated that no one in Jamaica will claim to be the new Bob Marley and wondered while Nigerian artistes will claim to be his father, when even the children of the late legend never at any time claim to be him.
If you recollect, Seun Kuti once called out American rapper Kanye West after he mentioned that the spirit of Fela lives in him. ” The spirit of Fela has not left his family and so will never live in anyone” Seun said

 

This seems to be a direct blast on Burna boy who has come out to say he sings “Afro-fusion” and not “Afrobeat. The singer who paid tribute to Fela with his viral song “Ye” has crossed paths before with Seun Kuti.
In 2013, photos of Burna Boy performing in only pants at the yearly Felabration went viral. Burna boy was said to have stripped himself and left with his underwear on stage in order to honour Late Fela Anikulapo Kuti.
But Fela’s son and musician Seun Kuti reacted saying; “Nna na wa o. I am bald for Christ sake and Fela never wore pants on stage. Tell Burna Boy that!!”.

Seun and his brother Femi are the two commercially successful musical offspring of the late Nigerian afrobeat innovator Fela Kuti. Seun has one younger sister who used to sing in his band. At the age of nine Seun expressed the wish to sing to his father. A short while later Seun started performing with his father and the band. Since then, Seun has followed the political and social ethos of his father.

After Fela had died in 1997, Seun, then only 14 years old, became the lead singer of Egypt 80. While in school Seun had to choose between a career in music and one in African Football. Seun and girlfriend Yetunde George Ademiluyi welcomed a baby girl on 16 December 2013 and named her Ifafunmike Adara Anikulapo-kuti.

When I was 9 I saw the cops shoot and kill one of my dad’s boys in front of Afrikan Shrine and just left him there for nothing. Fela tried to protect us but you can’t protect anyone from that. You know these fucking cops would come to our house and just shoot up the place at least twice a week? Do y’all know that? Or you think this is just play? Fela’s music is a gift for the world and everyone is welcome but our legacy is ours alone to protect and nurture. Y’all fakers stay way back. This isn’t your space.”

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.

“Stop Famzing My Late Father” Seun Kuti Warns Kenye West

Seun Kuti might not be a huge fan of Kanye West following his latest remarks about his father, Fela Kuti. 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.

Recall a few days ago, a video of Kanye vibing to Mystro’s song hit the Internet and we all loved it.Kanye West could not hide his excitement when he heard Mystro’s ‘Immediately’ jam with Wizkid. The global rap act was spotted enjoying the African sound in an Instagram video showing he is in Africa.

It was a moment of instant head bobbing for the American rapper while listening to the song in company of music executive, Bankuli who shared a video via Instagram. Bakuli, whose location read Uganda, was able to capture Ye in his time of discovering Mystro’s dope jam.
Mystro, in turn, posted the video on his profile. His fans seem to be falling in love with the song even more after the attention it received from Kanye West.Kanye West says the spirit of Fela lives in him but Seun Kuti is not impressed.
