Teachers Hated Me Because Of Fela, Says Femi Kuti

Teachers Hated Me Because Of Fela, Says Femi Kuti

Legendary musician and first son of Afrobeat pioneer, Femi Kuti has relieved his childhood experience during a recent interview where he opened up on his growing up while in school.

The saxophonist and Afrobeat star disclosed that he suffered hatred from some of his school teachers who knew he was one of Fela’s children.

Kuti said that while he expected to be treated fairly, some teachers would pass aggression on to him because of their dislike for Fela.

“School was a very depressing time for me because you had the teachers that liked him and teachers that didn’t like him so if I get into trouble with the teachers that didn’t like Fela they would beat me more because they don’t like my father,” said Femi Kuti.

“I later got to know they had a vendetta against my father. They have rich children in the same school and they didn’t like me because I was Fela’s son, they say your father smokes Indian hemp and I also tell them their father is a slave.”
