Budding Nigerian rapper, Olatunji Oladotun, aka ‘Dotman’, has declared that Nigeria would have been a better nation, politically, economically and otherwise, if the late afro-beat legend, Fela Anikulapo-Kuti were still alive.
In a an exclusive chat with Showtime, he confidently noted that Fela, who has been a great musical influence on him right from his childhood, would have been the perfect leader to steer the political ship of Nigeria because he was a divinely ordained leader.
He said, “I grew up listening to Fela, till now I’m still listening to him, his song ‘Teacher no teach me nonsense’ is my favourite song.
Morally, politically and otherwise, I just feel Fela was sent to make changes in Nigeria and he actually did make a lot of changes during his lifetime. If he were to be alive he’ll still be making changes till now, so I just respect his legacy because I know he is a great leader”.
