TBT: Fela — G.O.A.T

The Terrorist!



As Fela progressed as an artist, he also evolved into a political and social de’ force in Nigeria. In Fela’s music, he takes on the subject of religion, denouncing the two religion of the “Colonial Masters”, Christianity & Islam, which he believed helped sustain passivity in the downtrodden masses. Fela Anikulapo Kuti rejects idea of suffering on Earth so you can find happiness in Heaven, and points out that the leaders who espouse these beliefs often live hypocritically in opulence. Instead, The Great One (Fela) urges the embrace of traditional African beliefs.


About music, he said: “Music is the weapon. Music is the weapon of the future.”
