During Muhammadu Buhari’s time as Nigeria’s Military Head of State, he imprisoned the late afrobeat king over a currency smuggle charge which was considered politically movitivated by many as Fela was a vocal opponent of his regime.

Fela was thrown in jail by Buhari in 1984 and not 1976 as Eedris claimed. Fela Kuti, however, died in August 1997 of HIV/AIDS and not in 1976.
