#Forfreedom The man, The music, The legend 20YEARS after his death...... #MUSIC IS THE WEAPON "The secret of life is to have no fear"
Fela Anikulapo Kuti was a fierce human rights and political activist who dedicated his life to fighting inequality, injustice, and cultural imperialism through his music.
He fought for freedom through music even if he was condemned for it.....still he never stopped.. HE SAID “Music is a weapon of the future / music is the weapon of the progressives / music is the weapon of the givers of life” #NAMED
His real name is not fela anikulapo kuti but olufela ransome kuti.....he removed the ransome because it was the name given to his family during slave trade #RANSOME Other quotes of his includes;
1) “My people are scared of the air around them, they always have an excuse not to fight for freedom,”(20 years and this has not changed we are still scared)
2) “To be spiritual is not by praying and going to church. Spiritualism is the understanding of the universe so that it can be a better place to live in” ( this is what it means to be spiritual)
3)With my music, I create change...I am using my music as a weapon." -- Fela Kuti
