How Fela, Burna boy inspires me – Super Eagles defender, Troost Ekong

Afrobeat legend Fela Anikulapo Kuti and Grammy award winning singer, Burna Boy have been named by Super Eagles and Watford defender, William Troost-Ekong as people who inspire him.

William Troost-Ekong made this known while speaking to Watford’s official website on Black History Month.

The Black History Month is a special month (October) set aside to amplify the work of black people and recognise their achievements in our society.

According to Ekong, he’s inspired by the messages in Burna Boy’s songs.

“His music inspires me, maybe like a modern-day Fela because he also has very strong messages in his music and I love what he stands for. He has a great connection with the UK and coming from Nigerian heritage, he’s someone I can relate to.” he said.

On Fela, who is regarded as the pioneer of Afrobeat, The Dutch-born defender said:

“I love what he stands for, it’s individualism and also the great music he makes, all of his songs, the messages, the life lessons, so anyone who hasn’t heard Fela’s music I would definitely recommend it.”
