Many artistes who claim they’re inspired by Fela only mirror the micro part of his life which involves heavy smoking of marijuana and philandering.
This was shared by Seun Kuti, son of the world renowned Afrobeat legend.
Seun made this revelation while on Talks With Ubi hosted by TripleMG boss Ubi Franklin. The show host said that lots of Nigerian artistes usually refer to Fela Kuti as their inspiration.
Seun Kuti cleared the impression that some Nigerian artistes only adopt Fela as a role model because they want to pick up smoking and womanising in the name of being inspired by the late Afrobeat legend.
He added further that there was more to his father Fela Kuti than smoking marijuana and womanising.
