Nigeria is just weeks away to the next general election that would see several political parties test their popularity at the pools. Expectations are higher. Fears, some would tell you, are even higher. Nigeria is heading to yet another historic moment in its democratic evolution
Already, as should be expected, Nigeria is congested with opinions of who is the best candidate to rule and who isn’t; who should win and who shouldn’t.
Seun Kuti, one of the sons of Nigeria’s Afrobeat legend Fela Kuti, who was nominated for the 61st Grammy Awards last year, has joined the discussion. In a recent interview with Television Continental (TVC), Seun Kuti, who last year dismissed Kanye West’s having the spirit of Fela in him, said his father Fela would be Nigeria’s president if he were alive.
He made that statement when asked if Fela would have supported any of the political parties in Nigeria today if he were alive.
Besides speaking on the political situation in Nigeria at the moment, Seun Kuti also veered into Nigeria’s music arena. It was a vintage Seun Kuti, as you will find in the video of the interview.
