Seun Kuti: Nothing is more difficult than growing up as Felas son

Published by The Nation on Sat, 05 Jun 2021


By Adeniyi AdewoyinSEUN Kuti has said that there is nothing as difficult as growing up as the late Afro Beat legends son. The activist and leader of Movement of The People (MOP) who took over his fathers Egypt 80 band said this during a live session on Instagram.He noted that while people might think it was all rosy for him being one of the sons of one of Africas music greats, it wasnt, as there were challenges.He said being Felas son cannot be compared to poverty in terms of hardship.You might think poverty is hard but poverty is not hard oh! Throughout when I was growing up, only one of my girlfriends moms used to allow me to come to their house or their shop and stay over but that was when Fela had died, he said.Read Also:Yeni Kuti gets car gift at 60Continuing, he said, When my father was alive, I could not enter any girlfriends house and my dad never did anything wrong to anybody before. When my dad was alive, the media and elite said a lot of things to spoil his name.All these things have given me thick skin against all the nonsense people do, so my haters shouldnt think they are the only haters out there, I am the chief hater of Africa. When it comes to hate, I hate the people you are afraid to hate.The father of one also revealed what he dislikes most is people equating the new music acts with the legendary Fela Anikulapo Kuti.When you people carry one of your new artist that you like you will now say he is the new Fela, that thing annoys me a lot and I have hated him immediately because you people tend to forget that Fela wasnt just this musician that you started liking, Fela was also a man and was my father so when you say an artist is the new Fela, you are automatically saying the new artist is my father.
