Fela’s daughter Motunrayo Anikulapo-Kuti revealed why she dislikes Davido and his music.
In an interview with Vanguad Showtime, Motunrayo Anikulapo-Kuti said:
“Last week, I contacted an Instagram page that has been promoting Davido to post and promote a content I’ve and they said since I’m Fela’s daughter I should pay N20,000. .
I told them I couldn’t afford N20,000 but N10,000. I later said I would pay N15,000 because I had just N20,000 in my account and I couldn’t exhaust all of it. .
They made jest of me saying ‘Oh, Fela’s daughter had only N20,000 in her account’. This is one of the reasons I don’t like him; I’ve never liked him. .
There was a time he came to Afrikan Shrine and sat on my chair; I told him he was sitting on my chair that I was older than him with more than 8 years, that, he should get up for me. .
I advised him not to think that because he’s Davido he can just come and sit on my chair. He eventually stood up though. I’ve royalties I collect and my net worth is ten times more than Davido’s. .
If I begin to think of how long I’ve been making money or when I started making millions, Davido had not dreamt of making the money he’s spending now. I don’t think Davido is a good artiste, I don’t like him. .
I’ve never related to his songs because he usually sings about girls, love, money and I’m not interested in that kind of music. .
I want music that would give me intelligence, music that would make me feel okay when I’m in a particular situation, not songs that would be telling me about a woman, a gold digger, an expensive shoe, accessory or whatever. .
That’s why I love Nicki Minaj; if you listen to her hardcore songs you’ll get a lot of intelligence from it.”
