'I Don't Believe In Marriage' - Seun Kuti

The Afrobeat singer is still single in his late 30s!

Seun Kuti, son of Afrobeat legend, Fela Anikulapo-Kuti has said he’s still single because he does not believe in marriage as an institution.

In his recent interview, the father-of-one also expressed displeasure at the constant increased rate of divorce witness in the society and declared that the action has adverse effect on kids whether parents like it or not.

"I am not married now because I don’t believe in marriage as an institution but I am even more tired of those that use it to destroy the mentality of their own children." the singer said, adding that, "Children are strong and very fragile at the same time and they get their security from the type of relationship and foundations you establish with them."

The controversial singer further stated that if he is ever in a position to decide legislation, he would make it a law for couples to ONLY file for divorce by the time their kids turn 18. He said,

"Before you divorce yourselves over every dumb little thing, can you please think about the effect on your child? Remove your selfish clothes and put on the garment of empathy. It really breaks the little ones and if I am ever in a position to decide legislation, it will be law that as long as a child has been brought into this world in a married institution; the said couple have to be married till the child is 18!"

"I think people will then realize that children are more important than your ego! Love your kids people," he said.
