Nigerian musician, singer and the youngest son of famous afrobeat pioneer Fela Kuti, Seun Kuti has stated that Africans were responsible for the sales of other Africans into slavery.

Seun took to his Instagram page to share a clip from the popular book, “The African Slave Trade” which shows a letter written by the King of Congo to the Europeans in 1526 over the slave trade after noticing that noblemen were being turned into slaves.

According to the singer, Africans sold Africans and the main problem is that until this day, the families of the ancestors who sold others into slavery still control the wealth and it is quite unfortunate no one has been held accountable for the ‘crimes’ the slave trading families committed.

He Wrote:

”This is a letter written by Afonso, formerly Nzinga a Mvemba, the king of Bukango ( now Congo) after Europeanizing himself and hoping for development.

This was in 1526 and we are still begging for help after falling prey and trusting the untrustworthy! Also when u say ‘Africans sold other Africans into slavery’ how does this letter make u feel?

African traitors sold other Africans and the problem is that till today they control the wealth they made and we haven’t held them accountable.

They were traitors not Africans #getthesax. Traitors sell their brothers out thereby losing the right to be called ‘Africans’ or ‘Brothers”
