DID YOU KNOW….
That Fela Kuti’s eldest son Femi Kuti does not smoke Weed (Marijuana)? Yes he doesn’t smoke at all nor take alcohol.
When asked if he have used Marijuana before, he said,
“Yes I have but I won’t say I really liked it, but probably because everyone around me was doing it that’s why I did.
As I grew older, I didn’t like it, so when I developed the will power to stop, I quit. I didn’t need it to perform. It was even more of a downer for me. I prefer to perform when I’m totally attentive in my mind. With marijuana, sometimes you are paranoid, worried about what the audience is thinking. You really cannot control your thoughts, or lose it. And then, different people react to it differently.
I don’t think my father would agree with my sentiments, if he was alive though. And when I used to smoke, I seemed very unfriendly because I was in deep thought all the time. I worry a lot and smoking made me worry ten times more. I could worry about the most inconsequential thing; Marijuana had that kind of negative effect on me.
I am not saying it has the same effect on other people. Other people take it, and they are happy, and cool with it. So I don’t see the sense in jailing someone for ten years for taking marijuana. I mean, you should jail people for committing a crime.
For instance, alcohol is worse; when you are under the influence, you can beat up your wife, and say stupid things”.
Hmm this is unbelievable right? But it’s a reality. Femi Kuti doesn’t smoke marijuana.
