One of the sons of the late Afrobeat icon and political activist Fela Anikulapo Kuti, Seun Kuti has received a warning letter to stop the mass meeting which supposes to emerge today Tuesday 17th November.
Seun, who sees this as a threat to close the shrine as he said, he would respect the family decision not to go ahead with the event” But I will go ahead with all the other organizations to launch THE MOVEMENT OF THE PEOPLE tomorrow”.
See below his reaction and letter:
bigbirdkuti So yesterday the government called my eldest sister @yeniakuti and threatened to close the shrine if I hold my event there tmr and also sent a letter to back it up. I respect my families decision not to hold the event as is but I will still go ahead with all the other organizations to launch THE MOVEMENT OF THE PEOPLE tomorrow and start our political resistance to the tyranny of this oppressive regime. Slide left and you will see the flier. This is a meeting, just a meeting of organizations and they are basically banning the right of association. Why are they afraid of the people organising? What is democratic about this act? The last time we tried to launch the government quickly called curfew and this time they have used threat but you can’t stop the will of the people. #getthesax#liberationgeneration#wenodoagain#endoppression.
