The legendary Afrobeats king, Fela Anikulapo Kuti died about twenty three years ago.
Since his death, many Nigerian artistes have tried to fill in the gap, but the shoes left behind by the founder of Egypt 80 Band seem too large to wear.
But some young artistes tend to be coming up very strong towards that direction of being another Fela.
The names that readily come to mind are Burna Boy, Naira Marley and Falz.
The question is, who among these three musicians is the Fela of this generation?
Below are some of the numerous answers given about this trending question on the social media:
