The picture was taken backstage at the Nigeria Centenary Celebration Grand Finale,  the celebration was held at the National Stadium Abuja. Other acts who performed were Omawunmi, 2Face Idibia, Wizkid, Ara, and many more.

The centenary celebration is a celebration of a century of existence as a nation. In celebration 100 distinguished Nigerians were honoured. This cuts across different sectors and endeavours musicians honoured include the Late Fela Anikulapo Kuti, Stephen Osita Osabede, Hubert Adedeji Ogunde, and Alhaji (Dr) Mamman Shata Katsina.

However the family of Fela Anikulapo Kuti has rejected the award. Reason? They demand an apology from the government for the death of their grand Mother Funmilayo Ransome Kuti  who was thrown out of a window of their home the then Kalakuta Republic (the shrine) by military men.

“We have not heard such but I can speak for myself, FG should first apologise for the killing of our grandmother and the burning of Kalakuta,” Femi Kuti said in a twitter correspondence with PM News last week before the awards ceremony.
