Happy Birthday, Seun Kuti: a man of his own making but still his father’s son!


The son of the late great Fela Anikulapo-Kuti keeps his soul, sound and message alive, so we simply have to celebrate him! Today, Seun Kuti is 34, and for someone so young, he has accomplished so much. He has blazed a trail independent of his father’s work. Today, people come and see the Afrobeat giant because of his talent, not because of his father’s name. He plays to sold-out venues; people pay attention when he speaks; he is all about the emancipation of Africans.

For this reason, Seun Kuti, and indeed most of the Kuti clan, are bae. We celebrate you today, and thank you for the music!


Oh, and this was Seun Kuti live at the Festival International, Lafayette, a few moons ago:


And here he is, his father’s son, spitting the truth Nigerian policies and problems. He took on the fuel hike, the Occupy Movement, labour And Buhari’s Anti-Corruption policy.


Happy birthday, Seun Kuti! May you live long and prosper!
