Fela was an avowed critic of Nigerian governments. What about you?
Since the return of democratic governance in Nigeria, I have not taken notice of any government. I do what I have to do by continuing to fight them with my music. They have bastardized our lives. I was trained to be just, so I have always challenged anything that is unjust. I didn’t notice Obasanjo and I was one of his greatest critics. I put a lot of pressure on his government internationally, and I would also put pressure on this (Yar’Adua) government. The attitude of the politicians, the rich and the directors in the various companies who are the backbone of the various governments. These people are the dangers to the society because they refuse to see the common man on the street. They don’t get to see the level of poverty in the land because they are restricted to Ikoyi, Abuja, US and Europe. They don’t know what happens in the slums and they are non-challant. So, if you ask me, I’ll tell you that all I see is just a bunch of corrupt… So what do you have to tell those in governmen
