Seun, son of Afrobeat legend, Fela Kuti has kicked hard on American rapper Kanye West after he said the spirit of Fela lives in him.
This happened after the American rapper drew a comparison between himself and the Afrobeat pioneer in a video he posted on Twitter.
In the video which he captioned ‘Mind Control’, the rapper rambled non-stop about different things that he is not allowed to do, say and feel.
He said: “I am in Africa recording. The music is the best on the planet. I am the best living recording artiste… we, rather, because the spirit flows through me. The spirit of Fela, the spirit of Marley, the spirit of Pac flows through me.
“We know who the best is.”
In his response through a comment, Seun said, “on behalf of the Kuti family, I want to state that the spirit of Olufela Anikulapo Kuti isn’t anywhere near Kanye West”.
