After Fela’s Death, People Predicted 12 Other Family Members Could Die – Femi Kuti

(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – Popular Afrobeat musician, Femi Kuti, has opened up on how some people predicted that 12 of his family members would die in short spells after the deaths of his father, late Afrobeat pioneer, Fela Anikulapo-Kuti, his sister, Shola Kuti, and a cousin at a stretch.

Femi made this known during an interview with Chude Jideonwo saying that the period was particularly difficult for him.
According to him, the divorce he had with his wife during the crisis nearly made him mad.

Kuti said: “Fela had just gone [died]. My sister [Shola] had gone. My cousin had gone. Some people were predicting that 12 of us would die. And I [was] saying, is this prediction going to come true?

“We had our internal family problems. They would say, ‘You know, you are the first son; you must do it.’ And I would say, ‘Who born me inside this wahala like this?’ Then my wife go [got separated from me]. And they said, ‘Femi is going mad.’ It was terrible.”

He, however, disclosed that he was grateful for the experience saying that it made him who he is today.
