“If my father was alive, he would be president of Nigeria in 2019.

“I don’t think anybody in Nigeria political scene is a pan African socialist so I don’t see anyway Fela can support any one of the 2019 presidential candidates.”

Femi also condemned those smoking ‘weed’ and chasing ladies all in the name of trying to imitate Fela.

“I would not let people bastardize Fela’s legacy by smoking ‘Igbo’, chasing many girls, claiming to be like him,” he added.
