Femi Kuti Speaks – ‘I Don’t Believe In That Democratic Process’

Femi Kuti with out a doubt has a good heritage. There were concerns at the time of his Father’s death, as to whether he’d be able to fill the huge shoes that Fela left behind. But with a fan base that stretches across the globe, 2 Grammy award nominations amongst many other milestones, there is little doubt that he has done very well for himself. He has been outspoken with his music and kept it conscious, as his father did.

In this 12 minute long interview with Omotara Bowen of ViewNaija.com, we see a rare interview with Femi Kuti who has been silent in the media for the past few years. He reminisces about his past memories and speaks about current issues.

    After hearing this interview you can understand why he has had a hiatus from the media and commenting on politcal issues. Femi is a great muscian who can only do what is within his ability to live up to the legacy of his dad.

    He looks so cute when he says i like to drink my coffee before i answer that question. I like that he is sincere, and he acts like those Yoruba professor father’s. Long Live Anikulapo\ Ransome Kuti. ……………

    The interview was boring. Omotara needs to develop herself as a journalist. She was too rigid with the questions, she was too procedural. She didn’t engage with him. Omotara, u shud have been interactive and we didn’t have to see your question paper. If this interview was ace, it may have landed you a job on good tv channel. Perhaps with more experience you will grow.

    @ Purpleicious & Lafunky, co-sign. She should’ve given the impression that she knows who she’s talking to & what he does. Thank goodness for Mr. Kuti’s charisma, her lack of enthusiasm & watching her glance down every minute bugged me & made the interview…not so good.

    I enjoyed the interview, i am not gonna be distracted by “SIMON COWELL” wanna be lol. The truth of the matter is that We get an opportunity to listen to our HERO Femi Kuti and we can learn something from a great Nigerian for sleeping and waking up every Day since he was n born into this earth with the problem of Nigeria and Africa , He sing about this problem all around the world exposing the bad leader and helping Nigeria to see WHY THEY HAVE TO love themself (Africa for Africa) is an honor to have you FEMI KUTI best show ever in ATLANTA .

    Oludare baloye, u must have watched a different interview cuz Purplelicious and Ready are right u know. Let’s call a spade a spade..the interviewer/journalist wasn’t good at all. Nigerians need to learn to receive feedback whether positive or negative..that’s how you will improve in your ability.
