Nigerian music icon Femi Kuti has asked the ruling party, All Progressives Congress to desist from using his late father, Fela’s name for their campaigns.
The music star gave the warning via his Twitter page on Wednesday, May 5, 2021, while reacting to the party’s use of the Legendary Fela’s name on some of its branded shirts.
“I have seen the tweet by @APCNigeria and confirm that use of Fela’s name on the T shirts bearing the name “JAGABAN” was never authorized. The family owns the trademark and the use constitutes an infringement and disregard of our legal rights. The user is advised to cease and desist,” he tweeted.
