The first son of late Afrobeat pioneer, Fela Kuti, Femi Anikulapo-Kuti, has said that he does not do music to win Grammy awards but to make an impact in society.
Kuti who has been nominated for Grammy awards four times has said that his music career is based on talking about social and political issues. He says if he was targeting Grammy Awards, he would not be based in Nigeria.
“My career was never built on winning awards. It was based on talking about social and political issues. If my career were built on winning the Grammys, I would probably not be based in Nigeria. I would set up somewhere in American and be lobbying for it” he told Beat FM 99.9.
“It’s really political, you must be there, they must see you and you must be fighting for it. I would be working with the best musicians to put a big image of my people out there. If I use big American artists to distribute my music it is already a Grammy-nominated album. The Grammy already knows who I am.”
Kuti said as a musician, his fulfillment will be in a prosperous Nigeria and Africa, adding that no award will bring such satisfaction.
“Most important for me and my career, is, if I can wake up and have electricity forever if we have good salaries for everybody, pensions are paid, the roads are good, and Africa is a big party where I can drive my car from Lagos to Nairobi, Johannesburg, and the place is booming with love, no award can bring me such satisfaction,” Kuti said.

The popular music star, who is a staunch supporter of the Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi, made the claim in a tweet on his verified Twitter handle.
