Femi Kuti give reasons why he left his father’s band and chart a new cause for himself


Afro beat veteran Femi Kuti has revealed how his late father, Fela Anikulapo Kuti, condemned his first album, calling it useless.

According to Femi, Fela even went public to insult him about the album.

The World record holder said though he felt pained at the criticism, he went ahead to do more work and release his second body of work, which his late dad acknowledged as being a better album.

Femi Kuti went further to open up on why he decided to leave his father’s band and chart a new cause for himself.

He said though everybody wanted him to remain with his father, he felt he needed to be his own man.

Femi Kuti is one of Africa’s leading musicians and has been propagating the gospel of Afrobeat alongside his brother, Seun Kuti, since the death of his father and Afrobeat legend, Fela Anikulapo Kuti.
