Seun Kuti has taken to his Instagram to call out Kanye West who claims he is possessed by the spirit of the great Fela Anikulapo Kuti.
The American rapper made this claim in a 9-minute video titled ‘Mind Control’ shared on his Twitter yesterday, in which he claimed, among other things, that the spirit of the late legend flows through him.
“I am in Africa recording. The music is the best on the planet. I am the best living recording artiste… we, rather, because the spirit flows through me. The spirit of Fela, the spirit of Marley, the spirit of Pac flows through me,” said Kanye in the video, adding, “We know who the best is.”
The rambly video stirred mixed reactions on social media, and one of those who called him out is Seun Kuti who took to his Instagram to reply the rapper. “On behalf of the Kuti family, I want to state that the spirit of Olufela Anikulapo Kuti isn’t anywhere near Kanye West,” he said.
