I won’t allow anyone to bastardise Fela’s legacy – Seun 


Samuel Oladipo Essodee

Seun, chip-off-the-old-block son of legendary Afrobeat originator, Fela Anikulapo-Kuti, has asked  people to stop bastardising his father’s legacy.

The 36-year-old, who currently leads his father’s former  Egypt 80 band, made this known during his visit to the popular early morning show , ‘Your View’,  on TVC .

‘’I will not let people bastardise his legacy. The part of Fela that was eccentric, artistes want to use it as an excuse to get away with their irresponsibilities. Everybody wants to smoke igbo, chase plenty girls. Don’t minimise my father to such a basis level.”

The artiste who gave an electrifying performance during the One Lagos Fiesta held last December, had a great season last year as he got a Grammys nomination.
