Femi Anikulapo-Kuti has come out to react to Fela Kuti missing out as an inductee of the 2021 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame despite coming second in the fan vote category with over 500,000 votes. He recently revealed this on his social media page, and Nigerians have been reacting.
According to him, apparently, there was another voting process that was carried out by only the organizers of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame to decide the inductees, so the organizers simply wasted our time.
He added that the positive he derived from the entire process is that #Fela kept trending and many who never heard of him got to hear his music and his story.
His words, “Apparently there’s another vote only members can take part in, and that’s what counts. So they kind of wasted our precious time, the positive side #Fela was trending and many who never heard of him got to hear his music and his story.”
