Seun Kuti, the 37 year old son of the late Afrobeat legend, Fela Anikulapo Kuti has said that most artistes pursing their personal interests are only hiding under the guise of being inspired by his late father to smoke, take drugs and chase girls.
Seun, in a recent interview, stated that “I think a lot these persons grow up in Christian and Muslim homes but use Fela as an excuse to misbehave. They smoke, chase girls, are reckless and rude to elders.”
Seun also took a swipe at Burna Boy, who was recently reported to have said “I brought the Afrobeat genre to the mainstream, where it currently enjoys Western recognition.”
“I am the best in the country’s music industry since Fela.”
Seun was reported to have said “They say they do it alone, I just smile.”
