A prophet they say, is not recognized in his home town. This is exactly what happened to the legendary Afrobeat king Fela Anikulapo Kuti. Rather, the zombie singer has been recognized in far away United State by the unlikeliest of group.
Fela Kuti born Olufela Olusegun Oludotun Ransome-Kuti, on the 15th October 1938 and died on the 2nd August 1997, also known as Fela Anikulapo Kuti or simply Fela, was a Nigerian multi-instrumentalist, musician, composer, pioneer of the AFROBEAT music genre, human rights activist, and political maverick.
The US Congress has issued a certificate of Congressional Recognition to late legendary singer, Fela Anikulapo Kuti in appreciation of the great contributions he made to music in the world. His son, Seun Kuti shared a photo of the certificate of recognition on his Facebook wall.
Congrats, the man!
