Rage as Fela Kuti is not among the inductees into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 2021 class

Published

on

Godfather of Afrobeat, Fela Anikulapo Kuti who received the posthumous honour to be among those vying to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 2021 some few months back, sadly failed to secure a spot despite being top two on the voting polls.

Fela Kuti gets shunned from the inductees despite being top two.

Today, May 12, the committee announced the inductees by means of a 3-minute video through president and CEO, Gregg Harris. Fela was nominated in the Performers Category, amassing a total of 545,000+ votes, making him the second most voted act after Tina Turner (548,000+ votes) but to the surprise of the masses, Fela was not included in the list of inductees.

Shockingly included are performers like rap icon and mogul – JAY-Z and LL Cool J who failed to secure a top five spot on the poll, infact, they were the least voted acts when voting concluded.

Although, quite frankly there is a disclaimer on the website were the poll was conducted, stating that votes do not guarantee induction but for a Top 2 voted act in Fela Anikulapo Kuti, that should not even be the case and Nigerians have taken to Twitter to express their disappointment at the ‘rigging’, ‘clout chasing’ and inconsiderate conduct regarding how the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame committee unjustly treated the voting polls and Fela Kuti.

Twitter NG i.e users of Twitter in Nigeria, as it is the yearly custom are trending “Happy 420” as the number one topic in the country. While many really used the medium to share their unwavering love for weed, others have taken it upon themselves to make funny tweets, memes, skits and share several videos in relation to weed smoking and “Happy 420” as an entity.

While some tweeps take jab at those who don’t smoke weed but indulge in the “woke” culture by wishing stoners a “Happy 420”, others in their own way intentionally misinterpret certain scriptural verses for comedic purpose in order to aid and bait their smoking habits, still others take it upon themselves to disperse various memes which for sure will bring a smile upon your face. That’s not all, though, for we have some tweeps who did brainstorm to form some of the best puns concerning weed and stoners jokes ever.
