He recently had his say via his social media page, and Nigerians have been reacting.
According to him, whether it is for your own song or for a feature, a win is a win regardless of how it happens.
Samklef added that Seun Kuti should calm down because Fela Kuti didn’t teach him to rebel against the young musicians.
His words, “Seun you need to calm down .. person get nomination but no win and another person get nomination by music video and win .. to win Grammys no be beans regardless of how you win … a win is a win. FELA DID NOT TEACH U TO REBEL AGAINST THE YOUNG ONES. Practice what u preach. Is this how u want be a president or run a party. Fela wept.”
