I am not Fela Kuti - Burna Boy blasts Sowore for asking him to join the Oct. 1 protest (photos)
Burna Boy has fired back at Omoyele Sowore after being invited to a #RevolutionNow protest scheduled to hold on October 1.
The media personality and former Presidential candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC) sent out the invitation via a tweet in which he stated how Burna Boy has been described as a revolutionary musician and also compared to late music legend, Fela Kuti. "
Sowore tweeted; "Hello @burnaboy, everywhere I turn people describe you as a revolutionary musician, the foreign media even celebrate you compare you to Fela Kuti, but I am yet to see you lead anyone to a police station carrying a coffin for head of state! Join #Oct1stProtest #RevolutionNow"
Burna Boy Replied: ""When Fela was alive, the very people he fight for was the one who put him through the real hell."
"People even stayed away from my Mother's family for associating with fela, they killed his mother and most Nigerians said he deserved it.
"Everybody is a Fela fan and supporter now that he is dead. Humans are so Funny, You politicians are ALL the same (especially in Nigeria) and Frankly I don’t trust none of you"
