'Fela was a prophet that was not respected at home'





Fela was a fascinating music personality

 According to him, the late Afrobeat icon was a prophet whose works encouraged other musicians in Nigeria to pass positive messages through musi






Nollywood actor Segun Arinze says Afrobeat legend, Fela Anikulapo Kuti, never got the respect he deserved in Nigeria.

According to him, the late Afrobeat icon was a prophet whose works encouraged other musicians in Nigeria to pass positive messages through music.
Segun Arinze has featured in movies such as "Silent Night", "Across the Niger", "Family on Fire" and "Black Arrow". 

In an interview with the NAN on Wednesday, August 2, 2017, Arinze said the issues Fela addressed in his works were still relevant.
He is a great icon and till date, his music still stands relevant. Most of those things he said in all his songs are prevalent till date. He was like a prophet but as the saying goes, a ‘prophet is not respected in his home town’, which is exactly what played out in his life.
We still keep hope that the society will continue to imbibe the messages he left behind for the much-needed change to come.

Arinze also described Fela as a great artiste who understood how to use music to pass on messages. He said Fela started passing messages before other activists started using music to propagate worthy and good causes.
And of course, he was being recognised by the government, people and the society; Fela was great, we can never forget him in Nigeria, Africa and the world stage. It even got to a level of staging a play in his honour, Fela on Broadway; what else can you ask for?” he asked.

Fela was a Nigerian multi-instrumentalist, composer, pioneer of the Afrobeat music genre, human rights activist, pan-Africanist, polygamist, mystic, legend and political maverick.

2019 may be two years away, but politicians have already started strategising on how they could clinch the seats up for election. This is normal, but what is a bit surprising to many is how celebrities have started showing interest in running for elective office. The Nigerian senate and House of Representatives has even passed the Not Too Young To Run bill giving youths the opportunity to run for political offices. Perhaps this is what has given celebrities the drive to delve into politics. NAIJ.com has curated a list of celebrities who have started making moves to fully enter politics. Check them out below: 1. Yul Edochie These 6 celebs want to become governors Actor and son of Nollywood veteran Pete Edochie, Yul was the first celebrity to declare his intention to run for Governor in the forthcoming elections in Anambra state. Writing on why he wanted to become the next governor, Yul says “we need young, vibrant, decisive Leaders with good hearts, Leaders who understand the urgent need to fix the problems of the masses. Leaders who will put tribalism and favouritism aside and work for the people.” He hasn’t announced the party on whose platform he intends to run for the governor of Anambra state in November 2017. 2.
