On this episode of Going Underground, we speak to Femi Kuti, four-time Grammy Award nominee and son of Afrobeat Pioneer Fela Kuti. He discusses the End SARS and anti-police brutality protests that have swept Nigeria, the root of police violence being in the colonial era, what causes Nigeria’s police brutality, his own involvement in helping to calm a situation at an #EndSARS protest, the crackdown launched by security forces, why he believes President Buhari has handled both coronavirus and the protests badly, and much more! Finally, we speak to award-winning actor, playwright and author of ‘The Actual,’ Inua Ellams. He discusses the issues illustrated in his poems, such as climate change, Donald Trump, and racism. He also discusses why politics has become less about listening and more about knee-jerk reactions, why he believes the way the British government and people’s perception of immigration has to fundamentally change, the arguably toxic, lesser-known legacy of Rudyard Kipling, and much more! To conclude the show, he recites his poem ‘Batman.’
