Fela Anikulapo Kuti, was an Africa Music sensation in the 20th century and was also known as a living legend back in his good old days. He always made headlines, wether good or bad but this particular one sent shock waves across the entire African continent. It was an historic event which proved that Fela is indeed the typical African man he claims to be.

The late music sensation, Fela, married his very first wife and first love called Remilekun Taylor in the year 1960 and they even had 3 wonderful children.

Unfortunately, after 8 long years in marriage to them, the legendary Fela decided to finally end things and let the ladies go their own way in 1986. According to his reason, he said keeping too many wives leads to jealousy, war and envy among women.
