Seun kuti Celebrates father’s post-humous birthday, calls out poeple who claimed to be the New Fela
Seun Kuti criticizes those who want to be the ‘new Fela’ yet fraternize with the “oppressors” and vote for the people Fela sang against
Seun wrote in a new Instagram post:
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 hob n
obbing 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!!!’
In another post, he criticized those Nigerians who vote for the politicians that his father criticized and sang against.
He captioned it:
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
