Afrobeat Legend Olufela Olufemi Anikulapo Kuti, popularly known as Femi Kuti, has stated that he wants to be cremated after he dies.

Kuti stated that he does not want to be buried in a large ceremony and instead favours cremation and a small, intimate burial.

The son of late Afrobeat legend, Fela Anikulapo Kuti disclosed this at the New Africa Shrine during his performance last Sunday.

Recall, Kuti and his son Made Kuti were among the Nigerians nominated for one of the 86 Grammy Awards categories in 2022.



‘Legacy +,‘ a between Femi and his son was nominated for Best Global Music at the 64th Grammy Awards.

The duo was nominated in the same category alongside Angelique Kidjo for her album, ‘Mother Nature,’ Rocky Dawumi for the album, ‘Voice of Bunbon Volume 1,’ and Wizkid for his album, ‘Made In .’

During the Afrobeat legend performances at the New Africa shine, the singer stated that :

“When I die, please cremate me, burn my body. It is the most hygienic way. Have you all thought about Ikoyi cemetery, this has been in existence for let’s just say 60 years and people die, if they don’t die today, they will die tomorrow and that burial ground has never been full and if you check it, it is not like it’s 1 million acres since I was little when we used to bury people there.”
