#ThrowbackThursday - Seun Kuti Remembers First Time He Met Fela, Talks About Loyalty

Posted in: , , ,

Seun Kuti, last child of late Afrobeat legend Fela, has just revealed that when he met his father for the first time, he was already two years old. He shared the dated pic on Instagram with the caption;

#lifeondroad this is my first #tbt photo and a befitting one on so many levels. That's my mother and my step mum in the picture. The only women that stayed with my dad thru everything.

On this day, I met my father properly for the first time. He had been imprisoned by the evil and mean usurper and human rights abuser , Mohammad Buhari!

This pictures show U the truth about life.... When u are knocked down u know those that truly are loyal.

Fela Kuti's Ex-Wife Reveals Shocking Details About Kalakuta and Their Mass Marriage [Video]

Posted in: , ,

Laide Anikulapo-Kuti, Nee Babayale, was one of the 27 wives that the late Afrobeat legend, Fela Anikulapo-Kuti, married in a mass ceremony.

The woman has been talking to the press and reveals new details, some of them very shocking about the late Abami-Eda, and life in Kalakuta between the seventies and eighties.

Supposedly, Dr. Keti Ransome Kuti was procuring abortions for the many woman of Fela when he got tired of having children, and the African mediticine he took to render him sterile failed. I wonder if there were no condoms then, or maybe Fela is not the type to use condoms.

Fela Anikulapo-Kuti died in 1997 at 58, but his music and legacy are enduring, and a celebration of his life and music is celebrated around his birthday, October 15 every year. In the spirit of Felabration, I am sharing picture of Fela and his first wife, Taylor Remilekun Ransome Kuti. Remi was the mother of his three oldest children, Yeni, Femi and Sola, who are the major pushers of Fela's legacy in Nigeria and beyond.
