Femi Kuti has once again replied to critics who continue to compare him to his late father and pioneer of the Afrobeat genre, Fela Anikulakpo – Kuti,

Following the release of Falz’s ‘Moral Instruction‘, a socio-political album which drew samples from three Fela songs, some fans took to twitter questioning why Femi’s songs are not as critical as his father’s.

But Femi responded by saying he does not want to be his father and that he has nothing to prove after putting out 10 albums.

 “I’ve said it several times, I probably will have to repeat till I die, I don’t want to be my father,” Femi tweeted in response while also saying he didn’t inherit the Afrobeat genre but it’s the style of music he grew up with.

Femi also addressed an allegation that Fela wrote some of his early hit songs including the classic  ‘Wonder Wonder’ song. He wrote: “My father never wrote wonder wonder for me. I had left him then. He never wrote any of my music. He would never do that.”
