Highly revered music sensation, Wyclef Jean has decided to immortalize the legendary “Fela Kuti” in his own way with the release of the lead single off his highly anticipated 4th studio album titled “Carnival III”.

The Haitian rapper who spoke to XXL gave reasons why he named the track “Fela Kuti”.

According to him “I decided to name it Fela Kuti because for me, I feel like we be thinking of [Bob] Marley, we give a lot of people from our past props, so when the kids hear Fela Kuti, I really want them to Google it.”

This goes a long way in further broadening the wave the Nigerian music industry is pulling globally.
