“Fela Never Wore Pants On Stage, Tell Burna” – Seun Kuti
Son of Afro-beat Legend Fela Kuti, Seun Kuti has spoken out about the pant stunt pulled by Burnaboy on stage at the just concluded Felabration (A week long celebration of musical performances in honour of Fela). He made his comment on his BBM update saying “ Nna na wa o. I am bald for christ sake and fela never wore pants on stage. Tell burna that!! “ While we are still not certain on where Burnaboy got this inspiration from, this is the second time a member of the Fela family has slammed a pant-wearing stunt, as Dede, a protege of Fela also criticised an artist trying to depict Fela in pants on stage. As for Burnaboy, maybe he should have asked Uncle Benson Idonijie who used to manage Fela during his Hay days.
