Blackman’s Strive For Perfection To Please The Whitemens Has Brought Us More Disrespect -Seun Kuti Fires

Afrobeat singer, Seun Kuti recently put out his opinion about the conception of many about being black, speaking his mind, who feels that as much as black excellent is vibrant and beautiful, that to him he sees that as being irresponsible.

Sharing his thought via his Instagram handle, the son of late Legendary singer and originator of the Afro-beat music, Fela Anikulapo Kuti stated that black excellence has made many blacks think they have to strive for excellence.

According to Seun Kuti, on his post laid out striking questions; he went on by asking if it is a must that all Africans must “strive for perfection and excellence before we are respected as humans?’.

His post reads:

Black excellence is vibrant, artistic athletic, intelligent, beautiful but it’s fatal flaw? It’s IRRESPONSIBLE!!! The excellent blacks forget not all Africans can be excellent and if our humanity is suddenly pegged at excellent and perfect what happens to all of us who don’t fit into this category.

“Most Africans are normal, we can’t jump or run fast. We can’t sing and dance or make beautiful clothes. We are just normal people. I don’t get it? Are we saying the entire African people must strive for perfection and excellence before we are respected as humans?

“Moreover, many of the images I see promoting this ideology is basically African people trying to ‘outwhite the whites’!!

“And many of them have white peoples name sprawled all over them and they say it’s a brand and I’m like yea, that’s what they called it when they burnt it into the skin of your ancestors also, 200 years later and u are branding urself in the name of success”.
