Son of late Afro-beat legend, Fela Anikulapo-Kuti, Femi Kuti, says it is embarrassing if Nigerian and other African leaders do not know things to do for their citizens after winning elections.

Femi, who was on the ‘ONE Agricultural Project’ programme in Washington DC, says he cannot advise the government on what to do because they depend on oil.

The artiste stated that the discovery of oil brought about corruption in Africa, which made his late father to constantly battle the government.

“The problem of Nigeria is that they found oil when the population was small, made lots of money and forgot to farm,” he stressed

He further noted that Nigerians and Africans have the best brains but do not create an enabling environment for their best brains to showcase what they can do rather, they (best brains) develop other countries, adding that as a citizen of Nigeria, he is embarrassed and ashamed with the Nigerian airport, especially the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos.

He added that putting the right infrastructure in place like good health care service, good roads, and electricity became a problem because of shared greediness among the leaders.
