I am not afraid of death I know it will eventually come- Femi Kuti
Afrobeat maestro, Femi Kuti has shared his thoughts about death.
The Afrobeat star made this known during the listening party of his new album ‘
‘One People, One World’ held on Saturday at Sheraton hotel in Ikeja, Lagos.
In his words:”I have not listened to music since 2000, of course when you go to the mall or visit places, you hear music here and there, but I never go out of my way to listen to music.In the beginning, it was my father who got me listening to music but I read a Miles Davis book, where he said, I wanted to be original, so I stopped listening to music, so I took to that and stopped allowing influences”.
When asked about his new body of work, he said:” I think it will inspire people, the title of the album says it, we do have to understand that we are one people… see, the day I die, I want to die with a smile, I am 56 now, I am not afraid, because I know it will eventually come,” he declares.
