“Why my father didn’t send me to school”- Femi Kuti reveals

Femi Kuti, Nigerian Afrobeats musician has disclosed why his father, legendary Fela Anikulapo Kuti never gave him sound education.

Femi said his father, fela never sent him to school because he wanted to use him as an experiment to prove that people could be successful without acquiring formal education.

This disclosure was made by the singer in an interview with presenters of Your View, an all-female talk show on TVC.

According to him, though Fela was great, he had his faults, one of which was his refusal to send him to school, an experiment he believes was very risky.

In his words:

“Yes Fela was great. But Fela did have faults. But one of the faults is that Fela wanted to use me as an experiment. His excuse was that I would be successful without going to school”.
