Seun Kuti: Marijuana Is Healthy But Cigarette Is Killing by Nobody: 5:50pm On Oct 31, 2012



After commending his brother Femi Kuti’s exciting performance alongside him on Stage at the concluded 2012 Felabration concert at the Afrika Shrine, Seun Kuti broached an argument supporting smoking marijuana against smoking cigarettes. Seun is son of foremost afro-beat rhythm crooner, Fela Anikulapo Kuti, acclaimed possessor of death in his pouch who died 15 years ago following his debilitation to AIDS.

In his home sitting on a cluttered, narrow street of Lagos in Ikeja, which recently was transformed into a museum and popularly called Afrika Shrine, family annually put up a week of concerts to celebrate the legacy of the afro-beat maestro otherwise dubbed Abami Eda.

Seun Kuti usurped the avenue after his stage performance reliving his father’s style at the 2012 edition of the Felabration concert in Afrika Shrine to speak on his support for weed smoking. Marijuana undoubtedly is his choice against cigarette, taken after his father’s choice of purposeful adoption of anything African against whatever appears to be of African colonization by the west.

He condemned the non-legalizing of Marijuana like cigarette, suggesting that the position of the law on the two products was illogical.

In his submission, the favored cigarette has lethal consequences, while the legally opposed marijuana was medicinal and good for human consumption. But, Seun said, the killing cigarette was favored because it was to the white man’s profit, stressing that marijuana would make black countries richer than the white if legalized. His argument is an absolute face off with cigarette consumption while beckoning marijuana to the spotlight.

Proclaiming this position through lyrics of songs, the young Fela marionette damned black politicians for taking the white’s advice against its own natural produce of ‘weed’, which he said was good after all, and accepting the white’s product which truncates lives.

“This song is about the good leaf; ewe rere. Me I nor dey say make Government legalize Igbo o. If Government like, them legalize am. If Government like, them nor legalize am. I’m smoking it mehn!” Seun introduced.



Continued Seun, “Our politicians nor get sense. Because the white man talk say Igbo nor good, them follow dem talk say Igbho nor good. But now, in the United States of America, dem dey smoke Igbho legally”.

Seun suggested that the west advised the black politicians against legalizing marijuana because they knew it would make the black countries rich.

“Igbo doesn’t kill, but cigarette dey kill. Because cigar na white man’s business, as far as you write ‘Smokers are liable to die young’, it becomes legal.


“Why not also put Igbo in a box and write Igbo smokers are liable to go crazy young?”, he quipped.

Seun encouraged further in songs; “plant am make e grow… e good, e good, e goodu well well… plant am make e grow”.



After his groovy performance on the stage, Seun an interview with citizen journalist Segun O’Law, reiterated this position stating the benefits of smoking marijuana to include ‘medicinal’. Although Seun warned that over sniffing of weed could intoxicate or drive a subject crazy, he stood in his submission that modest weed smoking was better than cigarette bearing the latter's deadly outcome.

“Marijuana is medical, and I feel Cigarette is selling legally because it is white man’s business. It is killing millions of people everyday.. Igbo is not killing anybody.

“Marijuana is not only for smoking. It’s used for a lot of things; you can make clothes, you can drink tea, it is good, it is medicinal, it helps your appetite, they give it to cancer patients.. a lot of benefits”, he explained.



Many celebrities in the Nigerian and foreign entertainment industries performed at the concluded 2012 edition of Felabration.

The atmosphere at Afrika Shrine, Felabration concert 2012 was beyond expectation, shrouded in thick fumes of discharges from countless wraps ‘igbo’.

Bro so you are trying to say we were better off with idol worshipping, shrines, crazy superstitions, killing of twins, evil forests etc right? So you crave for the days people used evil and juju to do nothing useful for the good of mankind except to kill each other right?

Well if you really believe this, then you should practice your policies by first - discard your computer and all electronic gadgets, stop wearing cloths and return to wearing animal skins and grass or even unclothedness, relocate to a tatch or mud house, stop using english medicines and start using herbs, stop entering cars use camels, stop buying petrol because they taught us how to tap our own petrol, and oh throw away your phone.
Then we can have a rational discussion

thats exactly how black man thinks.. Thats exactly what whiteman wants u to believe.. The same juju are used in the past to cure all kinda sickness and diseases.. They use it to prophesy, predicts and so on.. U neva see anytin good in the juju becoz oyibo tell u say its bad and its definately bad they manipulate black man brain to work in one direction..
Why cant we be like the japanesse, the chinese, the indian etc asian countries generally. They will never compromise their hindu god for one foreign jesus...it helping them..
Now tell me how has those foreign religion help africa except to disunite people.. Turn brothers against each other, kaboom up and down.. D number of people killed in africa presently in the name of dis stupiid religions is far higher than what we had b4 we had dis religions..

Japan is one of the countries to reckon with when it comes to technology.. India is another center of civilization.. Yet they didnt turn themselves to western slaves to be civilized.. So why cant we worship our own gods and be civilized at the same time... Heck no oyibo man say our religion no good and dats final

Bro trust me! I am pro black and anti-west like no man's business and I do get you point but thats not the issue with us. You have to admit that we as Africans are naturally violent so we must capitalize on any issue regardless of how irrelevant to perpetrate violence, you see it in politics, sports, even in schools so religion is not our problem, it is our predisposition to violence that is our problem.

Secondly you said the white man tells me our juju is bad? No I have witnessed first-hand the evil people perpetrate with evil, my uncle was killed by poison that was sent spiritually for him, I have seen personally juju people using their juju for evil, thieves use odeshi to steal and the disappear. Why can't they use that juju for the greater good? And yes I know some use it for good but majority use it for evil.

So lets no blame religion because even before the birth of religion in Africa violence have existed and even if there wasn't religion, we will still look for a reason to be violent.

Besides you mentioned India, are you aware that the Hindus and Muslims are fighting?
In China the tibetan buddists are setting themselves on fire because of the Chinese govt?

sharaap there! Prior to the popularisation of weed, was there no madness and violence? And inspite of its prohibition, was there no madness and violence? So why not just legalise the stuff and enact laws to check its abuse? Illiteracy in action!

Dude reason this one out ok, I know it will be difficult, but try.
There was never anything wrong with ur culture black man.
there were certain practices like the ones u mentioned that would
have been done without, and the amenible ones kept, not entirely
rejecting our ancesteral ways and adopting another persons.
all succesfull countries are the ones that have maintained thier culture.
china, india, japan, meditarranean to name a few.
They also wear clothes and use cell phones , but they have largely
refused the whitemans religion, language and culture. that is the secret
of thier success. i hope you have learned something black man.

Not only that, I'm considerably one of(if not) the best genies, back in my college & university days, when smoking weed is a mandatory precondition for writing exams. Presently i'm still damn good at what I do...you'll never know I smoke if you take even a close look at me. Stop believing all these shît you're hearing from your mentally retærded govt and pastors...people die eating food, people die driving cars, people die going to school, people die indulging in religion, so what the f^ck is it if people die smoking?!

guy relax! From your standpoint, it can be evidently adduced that even the new religion(xtianity/islam) is as obnoxious as the old one(traditional). So what's the fuss in the neo religion as opposed to the traditional one, when the former is being used to wreck incalculable havoc on people, even amid its supposed blessings for others?
