Fela Kuti was a legendary Nigerian musician that pioneered the Afrobeat genre and was also a human rights activist. To massively gloss over Fela’s relationship with the Nigerian gov’t at the time, let’s just say the two entities did not at all see eye to eye 👁 🚫 👁
In 1974, the Nigerian military government raided #FelaKuti
’s compound and attempted to plant a big fat joint on him to frame him for drugs. Thinking quickly, Fela ate the joint. Not ready to give up, the military held Fela until the next morning with the intent to test the impending poop for THC and charge Fela with drug possession. As the legend goes, Fela was able to procure another inmate’s stool and fooled the military with a drug-free turd.
Now that is one expensive shit! 💰💩💰
