Nigerian musician Made Kuti, the son of four-time grammy nominee Femi Kuti, has released a new single entitled, “Free Your Mind.”
“Free Your Mind” comes with a befitting visual, it serves as Made Kuti‘s debut single under the new umbrella, Partisan Records.
‘Free Your Mind’ is very much inspired by the teachings I received from my father and his efforts to make me understand exactly what the black man and woman’s situation is in Nigeria, Africa, and around the world.
I think freeing your mind is, in a way, the opposite of what the phrase actually sounds like. ‘Free your mind’ almost sounds like decadence, like ‘don’t be constrained by anything, just take things as they are.’ I think the true meaning of ‘free your mind’ is to be critical.
It means use your mind to its full potential—to think, to try to find answers and ask the right questions.
