Femi Kuti, a musician and son of legendary Afro beat musician, Fela Anikulapo-Kuti, said Obasanjo and IBB had the opportunity to make Nigeria great, but they never did.
Kuti made this known in an interview with Goldmyne TV in Lagos.
Femi Kuti said former Nigerian presidents; Obasanjo and IBB keep condemning others, but failed to change the country when they had the opportunity.
“They keep coming out, especially Obasanjo to criticize other people. I am not in support of any government. Obasanjo has ruled this country two times, He has had every opportunity to give us good education, good road and improve the health sector.
“He has had all the opportunities. He even wanted to run for the third term. His daughter even criticized him on pages of the newspaper. I don’t know him, he is not my father , brother or uncle. We are not related”.
Femi’s musical career started when he began playing in his father’s band, Egypt 80. In 1986, Femi started his own band, Positive Force, and began establishing himself as an artist independent of his father’s massive legacy.
His first record was released in 1995 by Tabu/Motown, followed four years later by Shoki Shoki (MCA), which garnered widespread critical acclaim.
In 2001 he collaborated with Common, Mos Def and Jaguar Wright on Fight to Win, an effort to cross over to a mainstream audience, and started touring the United States with Jane’s Addiction. In 2004 he opened The Shrine, his club, where he recorded the live album Africa Shrine
After a 4-year absence due to personal setbacks, he re-emerged in 2008 with Day by Day and Africa for Africa in 2010, for which he received two Grammy nominations. In 2012 he was both inducted into the Headies Hall of Fame (the most prestigious music awards in Nigeria), was the opening act on the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ European arena tour and became an Ambassador for Amnesty International.
