Afrobeat musician Seun Kuti has said he will continue to serve Nigeria through his music as he took to Facebook on New Year’s Day to declare his 2020 resolution.
He wrote: “The only New Year resolution to have if you are a motherland person: This year I will dedicate myself to the freedom of motherland people and the development of motherland communities.”
He then ended his statement with the question, “What’s yours?”
Like his father, the late founder of Afrobeat, Fela Kuti, Seun has uses his music in service to Nigeria, Africa and the entire black race.
While alive, Fela used his music to fight oppression and suppression by the military in Nigeria.
Though Fela paid dearly for his opposition as he was incarcerated, he never relented in fighting the cause of the common man.
Seun’s grandparents were also both activists.
