First son of the Afrobeat legend, Fela Anikulapo-kuti; Femi Kuti has put all hands on deck to continue to uphold his father’s legacy as an activist and musician.
The popular singer who performed with his children at the Kalakuta Republic during the weekend showed the audience that he was more than ready to preserve his father’s name as the afrobeat legend of Africa.
Speaking exclusively with Saturday Tribune, Kuti said “I am doing what I can to make sure they are fulfilled as humans. They are already studying music in school, but I make sure I don’t force them. We have rehearsals twice a week out of their own volition.
Adding that his first son, Made, is already studying music at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, the same music school which Fela studied in London in the mid-90s, he noted that even if one doesn’t play an instrument professionally, it is important for one to know how to play at least one musical instrument in order to ease off stress.
Exited that his children are already showing interest in music, Femi further said “It is already in-built. If you noticed, during the performance, the little girl on the left was in her own world and entertaining the audience and I am optimistic that something great will come from them all”.
