Murray-Bruce Urges Federal Government To Apologize To Fela

Senator Ben Murray-Bruce has called on the Nigerian government to apologize to afrobeat legend, Fela Kuti, for jailing him.

In a post on Twitter, Senator Murray-Bruce wrote: “Fela is an icon, the greatest in Africa. Fela is a tourist attraction. More people know Fela than the name of any president in the history of Nigeria. Fela is Mr tourism.

“The Federal Government must apologize to Fela and offer him restitution.

“It took a president of a former white colonial master to recognize Fela and the African Shrine, while our own president, burnt his house, broke his jaw and even jailed him for having £1,600 in his pocket.”
