For the first time in many years, it seems the family of the late Afro Beat creator, Fela Anikulapo-Kuti, may have finally acknowledged that the music maestro died of AIDS related ailments.

This revelation was made known by the younger son of the music legend, Seun Kuti, who confessed on Y!TV’s Rubbin’ Minds with Ebuka, that his father and mother actually died from the dreaded disease.

Seun who has taken after his father, especially by being outspoken, confirmed that despite denials by family members when Fela died in 1997, it was actually HIV/AIDS that killed him as well as his own mother.

Seun therefore vowed to live a responsible life instead of following in that aspect of his father’s reckless sexual lifestyle.
