#Throwback: Fela Kuti Kicks Out Errant Band Member | Watch Hilarious Video
Afrobeat pioneer Fela Kuti was no doubt a serious musician. In a celebrated career that saw him achieve global musical renown, the artist never compromised on his standards.
For today’s throwback, we take you to a practice session. By the clip Fela Kuti was on the lookout for back up singers and seemed to be testing their chords. When a note seemed out of place, he halted practice and did a personal evaluation, expecting replies to his “democracy” call. What follows is a hilarious exchange between the famed artists and his surprised guests. But Fela Kuti got the errant singer in the end and the disposal was truly –in typical Fela style– hilarious.
