Legendary afrobeat icon, Femi Anikulapo-Kuti, has revealed why his marriage to Funke Kuti crashed. Femi , the eldest son of afrobeat pioneer Fela Kuti, told High Flyers Television, HFtv Africa, that he was fond of women and before his marriage to Funke, she knew he would never be faithful.
According to 54-year-old Femi, “I like women but I don’t have wives. Like I always say, I will never get married again but I like women. We have too many hypocrites, especially men who do not want to accept the fact that they like women a lot.
“Why are there so many divorce cases? We like each other and if you want to remain caged in your marriage as a man, good for you. When I was getting married, my wife (Funke) knew I would not be faithful. This was one of our outspoken thoughts.
He continued: “It’s like getting married to Madonna and you don’t want men to flirt with her; you will have a big problem; or you marry an actress you see kissing on the movie after your marriage, or you marry a sexy model and you don’t want men to come after them, sorry, you may just develop high blood pressure.
“If you want to get married to someone like me and you don’t want or expect women to throw themselves at me, of course you will have problems. There might be one or two mistakes around the corner and if the love is that strong, you both will stay together and accept it and work it over and forgive and forget,” he said.
Funke and Femi have one child together, Made Kuti.
Recall that in his 2011 interview with Encomium, Kuti had this to say about filing for divorce from then-wife, Funke.
“I am divorcing her to protect my side of my inheritance, because I have five children. I have to protect the interest of my children. Since we are still legally married, what if I die today? The law will favour my wife.
If I don’t divorce her, my children may suffer. What if I die and we have not divorced and then she comes and claims everything? The other children will not get anything and there will be a big war in my family. I will be dead and my ghost will be saying don’t fight, but they wouldn’t hear what I am saying. We know it happens.
My lawyer advised me to think of the future so I quickly regulate my will so no one can disturb my children. You know it happens in our country, when you have children from different women, there’s bound to be stress.
So I have to do my will and to do that requires a divorce.”
