The family of the late Fela Anikulapo-Kuti has debunked rumours of supporting a political party using the Afrobeats legend’s song for a political campaign ahead of the 2023 elections.

The family made the Disclaimer as The All Progressives Congress (APC) used Fela’s famous song “Eko Ile” as a form of campaign for their 2023 presidential election.

This action stirred a lot of controversies among fans, who had speculated that the Kuti family was endorsing the APC party.

In a disclaimer by the brother of the afro legend, he made it known that the action of the APC was without the family’s authorisation, and the Kuti family has always been neutral regarding politics.

The post reads, “We clarify that the Family permission was not sought to use Fela’s music, Eko Ile, in the All Progressive Congress social media campaign currently making the rounds.

“We do not involve Fela’s music in any political campaign at home or abroad and choose to remain neutral.

“While we wish all candidates the best, we demand that the laws of the Federal Republic of Nigeria are abided by, and intellectual property rights are duly respected.
