Family of Late Afrobeat Legend, Fela Anikulapo-Kuti Reject Centenary Award


Late Afrobeat king, Fela Anikulapo-Kuti has been named  as one of the honorary recipients of the Centenary Honours Awards, but the family of the iconic music star have disclosed that they will reject the award.

“FG should first apologize for the killing of our grandmother and the burning of Kalakuta…we have not heard anything from the Federal Government but I doubt if the family will accept the award,” says Femi Kuti, son of the late Afrobeat legend.

The Late ‘Abami Eda’ is listed under the ‘Internationally Acclaimed Artistes, Literary Icons and Journalists’ category of the Centenary Honours Award, among 99 other outstanding Nigerians to be honoured by the Federal Government as part of the centenary celebrations.
