Fela Kuti on Thomas Sankara
Fela Kuti (15 October 1938 - 2 August 1997) & Thomas Sankara (December 21, 1949 – October 15, 1987)
Did you know that in 1987 – Fela was devastated by the murder of Captain Thomas Sankara – personal friend, fellow musician, revolutionary leader of Burkina Faso and one of the only heads of state at the time who publicly embraced Fela and his music.
In A interview on February 1988 Fela was asked?
Your friend Thomas Sankara has just been murdered. What did Sankara mean to you and how do you feel about his death?(Long pause)… His departure is a terrible blow to the political life of Africans, because he was the only one talking about African unity, what Africans need, to progress. He was the only one talking. His loss is bad… (Long silence)… but my mind is cool because Sankara’s death must have a meaning for Africa. Now that Sankara has been killed, if the leader of Burkina Fasso, today, is not doing well, you will see it clearly. This means that in future, bad leaders would be very careful in killing good leaders.Source
