Seun Kuti, the son of Afrobeat legend Fela Anikulapo-Kuti has come out to denounce American rapper Kanye West over comments made about his late father.
The rapper had days ago on his Instagram page claimed in a video that the spirit of late music legends like; Bob Marley, Fela Anikulapo-Kuti and 2pac Shakur flows through him and that’s the reason he makes the best music in the world.
Kanye in the Instagram video said; “My music is the best on the planet. I am the best living recording artist. We, rather, because the spirits flow through me. The spirit of Fela, the spirit of Marley, the spirit of Pac flows through me. We know who the best.”
The comments made by Kanye did however not go down well with Seun Kuti, who also took to his Instagram page to denounce the comments made by the America rapper.
Seun wrote; “Erm erm on behalf of the Kuti family, I want to state that the spirit of Olufela Anikulapo Kuti isn’t anywhere near Kanye West.
“@ziggymarley over to you. ?????? @oldmanebro come get ur boi before I #getthesax.”
