Being Fela child made school depressing for me – Femi Kuti

Being the son of the late Afrobeats icon, Fela Anikulapo-Kuti, made education “depressing” for Grammy-nominated Nigerian singer Femi Kuti.

The multi-instrumentalist claimed that several instructors and classmates tried to humiliate and bully him because of his father’s excesses, but he refused to be humiliated.

He revealed this in an interview with well-known media figure Chude Jideonwo.

School was a really terrible time for him, he admitted, because there were teachers who liked his father, Fela, and those who didn’t. As a result, if I got into problems with a teacher who disliked my father, that instructor would likely hit me. Later, I understood that they held a grudge against my father.Femi Kuti

“Remember that the elite’s children attended the school. Therefore, because I was Fela’s son, the wealthy kids in the school didn’t like me. They would remark that “your father is pant” and “your father smokes igbo” (Indian hemp). I would respond, “Your father too is a slave,” in response.

“My mouth felt sharp, like a razor. If you hurt my father, you’ll be crying by the time I hurt you.
