Femi & I will work together only when money is no longer coming in - Seun Kuti

When asked in an interview with Saturday Punch if people would ever see him and his half brother Femi Kuti collaborate, Seun Kutu replied;
Collaborations like that are money spinners. If we would collaborate, it is not because we want to do something great for music because we are already making great music individually. But if we do it, it would mainly be for financial reason. We agreed that as soon as we feel our career is slowing down and money is not coming as it should, we would jump into the studio and do a money spinner.
Asked why he hardly get engagements in Nigeria, Seun said
I don’t know. I come back here to rest because I don’t get jobs here. I don’t understand it as well. At times, I am saddened by it because it is just a shame. It is not even about me but the band which has the pedigree of being a big band. But just for political reasons, we are being excluded. I believe afro beat should be in high demand in Nigeria, Fela did a lot for Nigerians. I watch the shows here and it is not as if they are better than what I do.
Asked if he was serious about never getting married, Seun said;
I don’t believe in marriage. If I had wanted to be married, I would have been working towards it. People can decide what they want to do with their lives. I just don’t believe in that institution especially as it is set up today
I don’t like the idea of ‘ownership.’ Nobody has the right to own anybody. This is a capitalist idea so that people can make profit off love. You don’t make profit off love.
What if the mother of his child decides to get married to someone else?
She is free. If she wants to be married, then that is her choice. What will I do about it? Will I put a gun to her head and insist that she should not get married? But I know she will not do that because we have a strong bond and we understand each other and our partnership is great. We are raising a beautiful daughter and it would be a big surprise if she says she wants to get married to someone else.

Anonymous said...

Just reading some of the comments here...

Nigerians generally tend to conclude on another person's views with an insult.
Is Seun not entitled to his opinion?

If you [commentators] feel you see weak points in his argument, then point it out.
The insults are unnecessary.

The insults illustrate childishness.

See you with your idiotic look thinking highly of your self and music taste. Banza dolo ko wei

Kelvin Jackson said...

I believe you Seun.... same here with Marriage but you should allow your woman get married if she so want to, she might tell you but she want to.... is Nigerian women disease.

Femillionaire said...

Nigerians and small mindedness... The man is entitled to live his life the way he wants to so long as he's not breaking any law.. Why una dey take parasol for another man headache? If e marry or if not, how e take consign una?

Don't mind d idiot does he even know what he was saying, he doesn't believe in marriage that people make profit from love ok how is it even possible to have such a " great bond" with d mother of ur daughter if u don't love her? Nonsense who will even give show here when u have wrong ideas. Better get another means of livelihood or start to dey sell igbo

It depends on how he views marriage. I don't see a difference between a dating couple or married one. Some dating couples live together too.
