Why Fela Married 27 Women In One Day – Seun Kuti

Seun Kuti, the Afrobeat musician, has spoken up about why his late father and the pioneer of Afrobeats, Fela Anikulapo Kuti, married 27 women in one day.

Recall that Fela got married to 27 women in one day back in 1978 in what was seen as a very daring move.

Appearing on the ‘Fresh Off The Boat’ podcast via Skype, Seun Kuti explained that his father married 27 women in one day in a bid to preserve their honour and dignity as the media was already tagging his female dancers and band members living with him as “prostitutes.”

He said: “My father was under immense media propaganda. He was very scrutinised. And most of it were directed to the women that were in his life; his female back-up singers, dancers. They all lived together with my dad but the media started calling them prostitutes.

“So my dad, in order to preserve their honour and dignity, asked them if they would choose to be his brides so nobody would call them names anymore and they all agreed. That was how the marriage happened.”

He also disclosed that Fela’s biopic is already in the works.

– Yetunde Kuti – How I Met My Husband Seun

Yetunde Kuti has revealed how she met her husband, Seun Kuti.
She spoke in a recent episode of Your View.
Yetunde revealed that she had known him for a very long time. She said they never spoke because she felt he was a lot older than her.
Yetunde said she later became his backup dancer, adding that when he asked her out, she “played hard to get” because she was seeing someone else.
She said there was a time she started developing feelings for him but backed off after she realised he was also in a relationship at the time.
“I was friends with his cousin before we met. I have actually known Seun for a very long time but we never used to talk because he was older than me obviously and he had his own older life and I was growing up,” she said.
“I eventually met him again through his cousin and then I started working with them as a dancer because I loved to dance. His cousin was one of his dancers.
“In the beginning, it was him scoping because it was a lot for me. The guy was just too amazing so I felt like he was a lot for me. It is just that he had a lot going on for him and he even had a girlfriend.
“It is just a five-year difference but at this time, we weren’t talking. I used to see him, I would go to places he usually visits too. But we never used to talk. He even had a girlfriend that was older than me. But after a year we got together.
“I played hard to get, I tried. At that point, I think that time I was seeing someone he knew so it was quite a bit awkward. It was not just him hitting on me, he had other friends that were hitting on me.
“At this time he had a girlfriend, what was I going to do with someone who had a girlfriend? Like where am I starting from? And his girlfriend already started giving me the face like who is this? One time she literally asked his cousin like who is this girl? So obviously I had to like back off then but for a year.”
The lovebirds dated for over a decade. They welcomed a baby girl — named Adara Kuti — in 2013 and would later tie the knot in October 2020.

Only Poor People Will Go To Heaven – Seun Kuti Claims

Seun Kuti, the Nigerian maverick singer, has claimed that only the poor will go to “heaven.”

According to him, Christianity and Islam are premised in the present, therefore, those with bank accounts and savings won’t make heaven because they don’t believe that Jesus is coming “now” by saving for the future.

Kuti, a self-proclaimed “juju” worshipper said most Nigerians would make heaven because they are poor and only 48 million out of the over 200 million Nigerians have bank accounts.

Speaking in the latest episode of the Spill With Phyna podcast, the singer said: “When people tried to preach to me, ‘Oh Seun, you’ve to give your life to Christ.’ I always ask them this particular question: ‘Do you have a bank account? If you do, you’re just like me. Anywhere I dey go when I die, is where you’re going.’

“Because to believe in Jesus Christ is not to believe in a man or a personality. There are doctrines behind it. You must believe in the death and resurrection. Christianity and Islam are religions of now, the immediate. Everything is based on the premise that everything will end now: Jesus Christ is coming now. If you don’t believe that Jesus Christ is coming now then you’re not a real Christian. But all of you that believe Jesus Christ is coming now, you now have bank accounts for tomorrow? You’re saving for tomorrow. That means you don’t believe Jesus Christ is coming now.

“Poor people are the ones that will go to heaven. That’s what it means. In Nigeria, it’s only 48 million Nigerians that have bank accounts. The government revealed this during COVID-19 when Nigerians were agitating for stipend to be paid to their accounts as palliatives. The government said that won’t work because only 48 million out of 200 million Nigerians have bank accounts. So, hopefully, many of those that will go to heaven will be Nigerians because they have passed the first criteria.”

Call Military to Order to Avoid Coup – Seun Kuti Warns FG, Sanwo-Olu

Grammy-nominated afrobeat singer Seun Kuti has called on President Bola Tinubu to warn the military.
He also sent the same message to Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu.
According to him, this is to avoid a military coup d’état.
The controversial singer was reacting to the insults hauled at the Governor by some yet-to-be-identified soldiers for arresting one of their colleagues over a traffic violation.
He noted that if the excesses of the military are not contained, not only civilians would suffer from it but also politicians.
Kuti also mocked the soldiers for threatening to “humiliate” social media influencer, VeryDarkMan for applauding Sanwo-Olu’s action, saying the military only bullies civilians but runs away from terrorists.
Speaking during an Instagram live session with fans, the singer said: “I didn’t want to speak on this very matter but when I open my Instagram this morning, I saw a video of one of the unruly soldiers threatening to humiliate VeryDarkMan for making comment on Sanwo-Olu’s arrest of one of their colleagues. Imagine, in a free country.

“Sanwo-Olu and co, you people don’t understand anything. You think you [politicians] are protected from this [military] boys? Have you forgotten what military coup is? If you guys don’t do your job now, stamp down on this impunity in the armed forces, keep them to their barracks, treat their f*ckups anytime they f*ck up… If any soldier misbehave, make sure the commandant of the barrack he is attached to is removed.
“If you don’t treat them like that, do you think it is only Fela’s family they will kill? You don’t understand as the government claimed that it was unknown soldiers that killed my grandmother, Fumilayo Kuti… They killed my grandmother, threw her from the window because they were acting based on government order.
“The government protected all of them saying they were unknown soldiers. Now, they are threatening you, Governor. The table has turned from civilians now, they’re now threatening politicians too.
“Now, let me address the soldier that was threatening VeryDarkMan. I, Seun, is telling you guys that if you do anything to VDM, you guys too won’t have peace. It’s only for civilians that you can show your power, but when it comes to Boko Haram, you run away. If Boko Haram open fire, you beg Nigerians; civilians to support you in your fight against terrorists.”

D’banj reacts to sponsoring attack on Seun Kuti

D’Banj, a Nigerian musician, denied online rumors that he sponsored the attack on his colleague Seun Kuti during his feud with Peter Okoye over Peter Obi.

Seun Kuti

During the clash between Peter Okoye and Seun Kuti over a comment made again the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, a post purportedly written by D’banj insulting Seun surfaced online.

SUGGESTION: You can get News updates directly on WhatsApp by clicking “HERE”. 

In the post, that went viral on social media, it was seen that an account with D’banj’s name said the son of the late Afrobeat legend, Fela Anikulapo Kuti, Seun has a low IQ due to substance abuse and should focus more on music than ranting on social media without offering any solution to Nigeria’s problems.

However, the musician has come out to debunk the post that went viral. In a statement via his lawyer, Pelumi Olajengbesi, the artist laid a disclaimer on the viral post.

The statement read: “This is to notify the general public that Mr. Oladapo Daniel (D’Banj) never made nor could make any derogatory or disparaging statement against anybody, especially within the entertainment industry, nor has he directed the publication of any such material on his behalf. Never!

The general public is thus advised to disregard the mischief of a publication maliciously pushed to drive traffic to gossip blogs and stoke non-existent conflict between Oladapo Daniel (D’Banj) and his well-regarded colleagues in the industry.

“For the records, D’banj authored no statement against his friend and brother Seun Kuti, and he is as perplexed as the general public by the publication falsely attributed to him.

“Dbanj’s view is that in the entertainment industry, they are all one big family and that though political ideologies may differ and could be expressed in heated ways, he holds that the irrefutable truth is that elections will come and go and they all will and must remain one big family”
