Afrobeat singer, Seun Kuti, son of late Nigerian music legend, Fela Kuti, is worried that a lot of contemporary artistes hide under the notion of being inspired by his father to pursue personal interests.
During the interview, he said such artistes often hide under that notion to smoke and chase women.
The 37-year-old also noted that majority of those who make such claims are from religious homes but they use his father as a form of “escapism”.
In his words, “I think a lot of them grow up in Christian and Muslim homes but use Fela as an excuse to smoke and chase girls.”
“And also using Fela as a reason to be reckless and rude to your elders. They are not really rude to the authorities”.
Even in death, Fela has continued to be a focal point in music related discussions in the country.
Fela is often seen as a yardstick for comparison with contemporary Afrobeat singers.
It should be recalled that in February, Burna Boy caused a stir on social media after he claimed to be the best in the country’s music industry since Fela.
