US rapper, Mos Def, is an unabashed fan of the late Fela Kuti and Seun Kuti, his last son.
Mos Def who was in Nigeria to perform at the November 2015 Lagos Jazz Series, visited the Afrika Shrine and bonded with Seun while puffing on a blunt.
The American hip-hop artiste famously sampled a portion of Fela’s “Music is the Weapon” (1982) on his own song, “Quite Dogs Bite Hard”.
He also performed Fela’s ‘Water No Get Enemy’ song while in Nigeria.
