{Culture.} Femi Kuti

My apologies for the lack of posts, I have been extremely under the weather. But alas finally i’m regaining my strength and getting back into the groove of my daily routine :)! I will announce the winner of the Manimal Giveaway shortly, check back later in the day to see if you’ve won. Today’s post is actually a re-post of a post I did back in Dec. 08. Today is Fela Kuti’s b-day and I thought this video of his son Femi is an inspiring compliment to his father’s legacy, enjoy!

I came across this interview Fader Mag did with Femi Kuti…It made me miss my other home(Nigeria), a place I’ve only visited once in my lifetime when I was 5…I can remember it like it was yesterday, bathing outside in a tin basin, swimming in the river in the countryside, meeting my grandmother for the first and only time, the look on my dads face when he saw his mom after more than 10 yrs., wishing I could have met my grandfather whom they buried under the bed we slept on during our visit, Nigeria.

It just reminded me of how important it is to stay aware of the happenings in the world and how we are responsible for helping our brothers and sisters worldwide in some capacity whether big or small. I know this post is totally random, just touched my soul! CLICK HERE TO READ THE FULL INTERVIEW
