Fela Kuti should not be compared in any way to Davido as Fela happened to be the creator in the music industry. He created Afrobeat and Davido happened to be an entertainer of hip hop. Of course, he was not the one who created hip hop. With this fact, a creator would always be the lead in any comparison and so a creator should never be compared to a mere musician, as recapped by the NIGERIA NEWS
Fela Kuti is a political activist from 1970s till his death, despite he was born with a silver spoon. He drops his silver spoon and has cause to fight against the Nigeria government on behalf of the poor citizen. He uses his song to express his political view, unlike Davido who entertain with his music. He suffered from the hand of the military government due to its truthful expression to corrupt activities in the Nigeria government.
Following his death in 1997 there has been the revival of his influence in music industry and culture.
