We all know Falz by now, to be a special kind of Nigerian Musician and social crusader. But that spirit is an offshoot of Felas legacy.
And its not just the message but how it is delivered. The artistic method and creative expression is right there for all to see, as a copy of how Fela did his.
There is hardly anyone out there here in Nigeria, missing out on this fact. That fela is the influence!
News of Falz addressing societal issues has dominated Nigerian Celebrity News blogs in recent times, with his similarities to the Fela dynasty always in mention.
The picture above says, he recognizes that influence.
That is Seun Kuti.
The pecfect resemblance to what Fela looked like and represented.
And together they are the undying voice of Fela, still crying from the great beyond, asking for a change that Nigeria deaperately needs.
The sighting of these two individuals gives volume to the fact that “it takes the DEEP to understand the DEEP”.
