Seun Anikulapo Kuti, son of late Fela Kuti says Africans who sold other Africans into slavery must pay reparation.
The singer-activist singer stated that Africans were responsible for the sales of other Africans into slavery.
Seun sponsored this train of thought in an Instagram post and shared an excerpt from the popular book, “The African Slave Trade” which shows a letter written by the King of Congo to the Europeans in 1526 over the slave trade after noticing that noblemen were being turned into slaves.
He argued and challenged the premise why the families of those who sold others into slavery still enjoy the ill-gotten wealth and nobody is probing them.
He advocated that they be held accountable for the ‘crimes’ the slave-trading families committed.
AFRICAN TRAITORS MUST PAY REPARATION
”This is a letter written by Afonso, formerly Nzinga a Mvemba, the king of Bukango ( now Congo) after Europeanizing himself and hoping for development.
This was in 1526 and we are still begging for help after falling prey and trusting the untrustworthy! Also when u say ‘Africans sold other Africans into slavery’ how does this letter make u feel?
African traitors sold other Africans and the problem is that till today they control the wealth they made and we haven’t held them accountable.
They were traitors not Africans #getthesax. Traitors sell their brothers out thereby losing the right to be called ‘Africans’ or ‘Brothers”.
