If Fela Kuti Was Alive, All Those Celebrating Him Now Would Have Demanded His Arrest – Burna Boy



Famous Nigerian Afrobeats singer, Burna Boy, has stated if Fela Kuti was still alive, most of the people celebrating his legacy right now would have campaigned for his incarceration.
In a recent interview with Apple Music on Tuesday 22 August, 2023, the ‘Twice As Tall’ hitmaker argued that Fela Kuti’s expression would have been limited if he lived amongst people in the current generation.
The talented musician suggested that the contemporary world might not have offered the Afrobeat legend the free will to express his ideas simply because “spirituality is almost non-existent”.
He reiterated that he is grateful that Fela Kuti existed in an earlier era when people could appreciate his genuine messages and core principles.
“If FELA was here today, a whole lot of Nigerians will be tagging the police to go arrest him” Burna Boy stated during the recent interview.
Burna Boy has consistently been vocal about his admiration for Fela Kuti. In 2020, the singer described the late Afrobeat music icon as his “childhood hero”.
