Seun Anikulapo Kuti, who is the youngest son of legendary Afrobeat pioneer, Fela, earlier today asked people to stop bastardizing his father’s legacy. The 36 years old singer who currently leads his father’s former Egypt 80 band made this known during his visit to the popular early morning show ”your view” on TVC.
Seun who is an atheist participated actively in the Occupy Nigeria protests against the fuel subsidy removal policy of former President Goodluck Jonathan in January 2012.
In his own word:
“I will not let people bastardize his legacy. The part of Fela that was escentric, artistes want to use it as an excuse to get away with their irresponsibilities. Everybody wants to smoke igbo, chase plenty girls. Don’t minimize my father to such a basis level.”
