Nineteen years after the death of Afro beat legend, Fela Anikulapo-Kuti, his children, Yeni, Femi and Seun Kuti have taken to social media to eulogise their father.
First son of the legend, Femi Kuti wrote: “19 years since the passing of our father, Fela, we love you and miss you very well.”
“Forever etched in our hearts. Nineteen years ago our Icon father, leader and father of the nation left the world stage. He lives in us forever and continues to guide and protect us. That is why Nigeria didn’t go to war against all predictions. Rest in peace, Fela. We miss you.” Yeni shared on her Instagram page.
She added: “The powers that be, beat him mercilessly. Fela, they can’t touch you now o!!!! Useless people.” A picture of him in bandages accompanied the message.
Seun Kuti on his own also wrote “19 years a god. 19 years an Orisha. 19 years an ancestor!! And by the way the Egypt 80 is still kicking ass.”
