Fela Kuti Fought & Died For Nothing!!
Fela Aníkúlápó Kuti, also known as Abami Eda, was a Nigerian multi-instrumentalist, bandleader, composer, political activist, and Pan-Africanist.
He is regarded as the pioneer of Afrobeat, an African music genre that combines traditional Yoruba percussion and vocal styles with American funk and jazz.
Fela was highly engaged in political activism in Africa from the 1970s until his death. He criticized the corruption of Nigerian government officials and the mistreatment of Nigerian citizens.
He spoke of colonialism as the root of the socio-economic and political problems that plagued the African people.
Fela Kuti was arrested over 100 times and made to appear in court over 258 times for criticizing the corrupt activities of the Nigerian government.
Despite all his struggles, we are still where we were over 3 decades ago. The condition of the country is even worse than before.
In my opinion, I think,
Fela Kuti Fought & Died For Nothing – DO YOU AGREE?
