Wyclef Jean, an award winning American singer has
disclosed that the forth of his song his new upcoming
album [Carnival III: The Fall and Rise of a Refugee] is tiltled
“Fela Kuti”.
You might wonder what a Nigerian Music Legend has in
common with Wyclef, well thats away from the fact that
both are into music of course. -Well, Wyclef put some
similarities together, he said;
‘Fela Kuti studied jazz in England. Wyclef studied jazz at
Vailsburg High School. Fela Kuti then went back to his
country and tried to help his country by running for
president. Wyclef, you know, did the same thing.’

together that inspire each other,’

Kuti”. He stated;
‘I decided to name it Fela Kuti because for me, I feel like we
be thinking of [Bob] Marley, we give a lot of people from our
past props, so when the kids hear Fela Kuti, I really want
them to Google it.’
He added, ‘For me, the same way kids can have songs
called ‘Wyclef Jean’ who are influenced by me, I want kids
to know who Fela is and what he means.’
